Cask hand pump at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Golden with a creamy white head, excellent lacing. Sweetish with some light bittermess in the finish. Some caramel, medium bodied, very drinkable; very nice.

SilkTork (5559) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2004
Frog & Toad, Gillingham. Mmmm - almost gone just like that! A gulping beer of fine quality. An old school best bitter. Good fruit up front, and a healthy spank of dark, dusty hops in the finish. Tasty job.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2004
Deep Bronze colour. Good malt and hop mix in the aroma, tending towards the toasty malt. Similar flavours. Sweetish to start, but bitterness develops later, to complement caramel undertones. Medium body. Long dry finish. Well balanced, with a smooth mouthfeel. A nice beer. Cask (handpump), Lord Moon of the Mall (JDW), Whitehall, London SW1.

imdownthepub (13389) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The White Horse, Wroxton, Oxon. A dark chestnut beer with bubbly head. More an Ale than a bitter, it has a sweet malty body with toffee caramel notes. Some hoppiness on the finish but the sweetness tends to mask this.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2002
The aroma is disappointing but further a very good beer, nice hops and wellbalanced. Light caramel, light perfum aroma. Dark amber colour, beautiful head, very good lace. Light bitter, light sweet, soft. Bitter and dry finish.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2002
The pour a deep dark amber, or burnished copper maybe a better description of the color, the head is transitory, the lace microscopic. Nose is malt, light hints of caramel, sweet and pleasant. Front malt, the top quite thin, the finish is discriminatingly hopped, fundamentally carbonated, with a dry aftertaste. The prototypical pint of bitter. Ranks #665 on my current 1000 beer master list.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2002
Dark brown. Some frutiness and coffee in the nose. Fresh hop presence, good roast, lengthy finish.

argo0 (13316) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 29, 2002
Black body with nice light beige head. Mild toasty aroma. Sweet and mild toasty flavor. Fairly one-dimensional, but pleasant.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 26, 2002
RateBeer Summer (Toronto) ’02: Brown in color, heavy malt aroma, a little fizzy but a great bitter.
