nitram63 (5) - Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2013 does not count
Enjoyed a pint at a pub in Kent in the Summer of 2007. very dark, nice and malty(as I like it), almost sweet. just enough bitterness for me. By far the best bitter I had during my 2 weeks in England. Wish they sold it here in the States.

berkshirejohn (4443) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2011
Cask at the John Logie Baird (JDW), Hastings. Amber with a tight cream head and a fruity aroma - nothing like the brewer’s description. The flavour is muted fruits with nutty carmael malts, followed by a light, dry, biscuity finish. Pleasant enough, but not worth a second glass.
