Appearance- amber, very clear, half finger persisting foamy white head which lasts pretty much throughout. Aroma- toffee and caramel, nutty, raisiny. Taste- smooth and malty, little bit creamy, medium mouthfeel, toffee hints, roast chestnut, caramel, slight fruit, some malt. Fruitcake and chewy toffee in the finish. Very nice.

Typique anglaise de pub. Légère et minérale, amertume modérée, arômes de malts en fin de dégustation. Très bonne dans sa catégorie.

Backlog. Cask at Green Lion Inn. A stable example of the style, nothing that lifts your eyebrows though.

Clear light brown with a small white head. Aroma is medium malty (dark toasted bread, straw) and medium hoppy (grass, wooden, earthy, nutty). Medium sweet and bitter, starts off soft and sweet but finishes light dry. Not bad.

cask@Pied Bull, Streatham (9/3/2014) - pours amber with medium white head. Aroma and taste is caramel malty, toffee, nutty, not as good as I remembered from years back but still decent enough for a easy to find bitter.

On cask at the Guildford Arms.
Appearance -golden to amber with a nice head.

Overall - a well balanced bitter. Greater than the sum of its parts.
