Hand pulled at The Major Oak, Nottingham. Clear amber ale with a nice head. Really not much aroma - slight toffee malt. Bitter watery creamy taste with no duration. Poor.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2006
Cask (gravity dispense) at London Drinker Beer Festival (Friday session), March 2006. An unashamedly traditional, copper coloured, English style bitter with dry malt and earthy UK hops in evidence. A bit more body than many "ordinary" bitters but a touch less than many "bests". Nothing that really stands out but a solid bread and butter bitter..

Svesse (6041) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2006
(Cask at Market Porter, Borough, London, 1 Aug) Colour is amber with foamy head. Nose is malty and nutty. Taste is fruity, nutty with a nice hoppy bitterness in the finish. Citrussy and slightly earthy hop character. Dry, but rather short finish. Not really complex, but nice enough.
