berkshirejohn (4587) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Cask at the autumn beer festival at the Prince of Wales, Farnborough, as Lincoln Imperial Ale. A farily basic bitter. Hazy amber with a loose cream head; malty aroma; sweet malty taste with a thin body and a light bitterness.

beeebon (198) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours copper colour with no head. Smell is caramel malt, metallic and slight copper. Taste is pretty bland, dry and quite bitter but not in a particularly interesting or pleasant way. Watery and low carbonation. Very bland and one I wont bother with again.

leaparsons (8163) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle. Mid brown with an off white foam. Aromas are twiggy with weetabix and black tea. Some hints of lemon. Flavours are dry tea with hints of sweet raisins and toffee. Biscuit with a peppery finish. OK.

Bottle from B&M. Amber with little head. A beer with lots of biscuit malt and honey notes. Surprisingly OK.

wimpyjoe (4155) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2014
Cask @ Dirty Dicks, Halifax. Copper-amber with a creamy head. Crisp with a medium to high bitterness. Malty nose.

imdownthepub (10468) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Royal Blenheim, Oxford. Amber with white head. Dry, light biscuity, malty body, some graininess a little flowery. It’s ok without getting exciting.

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 3, 2013
Cask (Maypole, Cambridge)
What’s so imperial about a 3.8% bitter? This is just a pretty standard rich malty bitter, that’s all.

DruncanVeasey (7249) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Handpulled at..you’ve guessed it. Honey amber skimmed with white. Honey and lemon throatsweets, pinecone, tea, soft leafy hopcone aroma. Honey tempered with robust hop bitterness if not flavour; long, dunked butter biscuit malt finish; Weetabix and aniseed hints. Very pleasant accompaniment to a jenga of Sheffield sleepers (chunky chips, lad). Good length and malt.
Earlier Rating: 4/26/2011 Total Score: 2.1
500ml bottle from Booth’s, Ilkley (£1.15- I was robbed). Pours still, brilliant gold almost like apple juice with a fleeting skim of head. Metallic dog aroma sprinkled with tea, caramel..a needle of pine. Dour, uninteresting beer with a honeyed metal, caramel-dabbed pine and tea feel. Decent creamy afters, light ferny hop, low condition. Won’t revisit at half the price.
