cask@Taylors in Streatham, London - Amber/bronze pour with white head. Sweet malty light caramel base, with some slight hopping on the palate. Drunk this many times in different places and never has a bad pint of this. Classic bitter.

One of the best bitters I've had. Lots of flavor and aroma of sweet malt. Orange/yellow little head but nice lacing. Had at the Blue Posts in London.

Cask at the Mug House, Bewdley. Pours dark orange with a small head. Aroma is creamy, bready malt with a touch of banana from the hops. Taste has lots of bready malt and toast with a strong bitter finish. Touch if sulphur. Creamy mouthfeel.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
My Bottom Line:
This super smooth, quintessential Bitter marries leafy, peppery hops to honeyed, lightly caramelized malts for an impeccable pint.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sticky head of foam covers the clear amber, lacing beautifully.
-Drinkability is very high.
-The nose could be better developed, in my tastes anyway.
-The leafy hop bitterness is long lasting.
-A subtle orange-y fruitiness gives the flavour profile more depth.
-A mineral touch is found in the nose (not nearly as intense as the one I had gotten in the bottled version).
On cask at The White Horse, Oxford.

The best bitter I have ever tasted, beautiful hoppy finish and lingering maltiness. But the head disappears a bit too quickly in this Cambridgeshire pub; it just doesn’t travel too well outside Yorkshire!

Lovely hop taste and lasting aftertaste that leaves you wanting more. I wanted a second pint after just one mouthful.

[cask, the Woolpack Inn, York] Clear golden pour in York’s newest pub that has all TT beers on at once – a great resource for a ticker. However, after a half of this and the Golden Mild, I left. Overly sweet, creamy, biscuity hay-like aftertaste, very little flavour. Disappointed
