ladnewton (1427) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Cask at the Wenlock Arms, London on 29th September 2013. Amber with no head or lace visible. Pungent earthy aroma with touches of smoke and caramel malt. Leafy hop, smoky touches and citric zing in-mouth. Bitter and quite nutty finish. Engaging mouthfeel and medium body.

BlackHaddock (3797) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2012
Hand-pulled pint in the excellent Cock Hotel, Wellington (Shropshire) on 29th Sept 2012. Lovely amber body, clean and clear looking: on top an off-white crown which provided a host of lacing as the beer sank down my UK pint sleeve glass. Floral hop nose: mid malty touch as well (mildly toasted/roasted bread/biscuit notes). The taste was also floral hop with the malts clearly present as well: again the malts stayed in the background just preventing the beer becoming too bitter or hoppy. The malt content added some smoothness but no real sweet infusion: interesting and another fine beer from Titanic. Nice blend of flavours and very easy to drink.

tombyars (1374) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Sampled this ale in the Saltcot, Saltcoats (JDW) in October 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque orange amber in colour with a thick creamy white head. Faint hint of orange in the aroma, along with a dry prickle of hop flowers. Marked resiny texture to the thin mouthfeel and good lacing initially but this fades away towards the finish. Pale malts give a slight gingerbread quality to the base with hints of satsumas and burnt caramel. Bitter hop resins gives longer tart notes in the resiny aftertaste. Bitterness continues on into the dry hoppy finish. Lacking depth and complexity for a 4.5% and tastes weaker than ABV suggets. Overall, a boring ale and rather disappointing to be honest - especially considering the other good efforts from the extensive Titanic portfolio.

AleManTom (195) - Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2011
What a beer this is, another cracker from Titanic. An attack on your taste buds of hops, malt, smooth as well. Decent head on it as well, plenty for your palate to consider.

imdownthepub (10328) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2010
Cask conditioned at The Jolly Crispin, Upper Gornal, W.Mids. Gold to amber with white head. Good old malty beer with a fragrant leafy hop highlight, well set up and balanced. Quite light on the palate. Decent.

leaparsons (8102) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2010
Cask, Ale Wagon, Leicester. Amber with minimal foam. Aromas are melon with toffee and floral, spicy hops. Grapefruit with a clean nose. Flavours are sweet toffee malts with lots of grapefruit bitterness. Dry and bitter on the finish. A good traditional bitter.

Pyobon (934) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2009
Draught. Clear golden with modest head. Little aroma, slightly hoppy. Medium body and carboination. Interesting and complex flavour. Tangy and fruity (hint of lychees and lime) with a hint of tea with a pleasant long fairly bitter finish. Very nice beer.

harrisoni (13797) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2006
Cask handpull at Market Porter, Borough. Copper, thick off white head. Rich fruity flavour, typical of Titanic. Bit yeasty on aroma. Good fullness in mouth, rich flavours, some fruit. Bit of sickly malt too, but overall not terrific.
