COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
Also known as Ordinary.
Ingredients:Maris Otter and Crystal malts; Fuggles and Goldings hops.
Production moved from Youngs to Wells & Youngs in October 2006.
"An easy to drink, refreshing cask ale with a fresh, fruity aroma that leaves a long, satisfying bitter finish. It is traditionally brewed to deliver a clean taste and is light and dry in flavour with a subtle taste of hops."

Amber golden body, very little head, medicinal hops in the taste, warm and enjoyable, this was my welcome to England.

Cask at The Lamb London WC1 26 Apr 06. Golden colour. A subtle aroma of hops and malts. A bit dull, but a nice bitter aftertaste. Easy to drink.

jcr (2220) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Cask at Lamb & Flag, London. Mild aroma of hops and malt giving the impression of sweetness. The taste is subtle and balanced — sweet malts with a continuous bitterness that fills the mouth. A good bitter though I would have liked it bolder.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Cask at the brewery. Clear light amber, little head. Faint hop aroma. Thin in body. Grainy flavor. Not the greatest.

Miksu (4948) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2006
Cask at Lamb, London. Golden-copper color. Tropical fruits, fruity hops and malt in the aroma, balanced. Very smooth and easily drinkable. Fruity and malty flavor with some caramel notes. Fruity-bitter finish.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2006
(Cask at Flask, Hampstead, London 21 Apr 2006) Colour is amber to orange. Fruity, hoppy nose with hints of orange, resin and sewage (doesn’t sound nice, but is). Taste is fruity (orange) with a long, pleasant finish and a metallic, hoppy bitterness. This is a nice bitter, not exceptional, but (when well kept) like a reliable old friend that’s always nice to meet again.

Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 22, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Cask at The Bear & Staff (Leicester Sq. - London).
Orange limpid color, clearly and deprives of head. Bitterish scent with notes of malt, resin and wood. Barren, dry and wrapping taste. Good body and balanced alcoholic tone. Medium duration final.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - MAR 25, 2006
The flavor was nice, a little too bitter, but nice manufacturing, the foam was great, that means some sugar, but didn’t spoil the taste of the beer itself.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2006
1. Cask Stillage at the Metropolitan Centre, Bury 24/11/2001 Amber coloured and slightly sweet on the palate. Some bitterness in a full hop finish. 2. Cask Handpump at the Beer House, Manchester 31/01/2002 Golden coloured. Poured lively. Slightly dry lasting hop finish.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2006
Handpump @ The King’s Arms - Oxford (summer ’05). Golden amber color, with a white head, that dissipates to leave a clear surface and a ring. Fruity and nutty aroma. Very smooth and bitter to the palate, with soft hop and malt flavors. Very clean, but very bitter, which lingered in the aftertaste. Nice session bitter which I enjoyed a few times and would get again, when I return.
