UPDATED: MAY 26, 2019 Typical mass produced low alcohol pub bitter, it's ok if the pub you happen to find yourself in have nothing else dantomlinson (432) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2019
UPDATED: APR 11, 2019 Cask at Hare and Hounds, Appleby. Clear amber appearance with medium sized lasting white head. Aroma is malty and roasted. Flavour is nutty, roasted and smooth. wheresthepath (2743) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2018
Cask at the Fox & Hounds, West Burton. I've always detested this in keg and can so was interested to see what it was like in cask. Lookswise, it's much the same -amber-brown with a white head and a light sparkle (it was served in very good condition). The taste though is massively better - a decent malty flavour with sweet toffee, nuts and a dry woodiness, followed by a pleasant balancing bitterness. It is, admittedly, rather thin and watery, but that almost makes it more drinkable, and thus more suited to it's role as a session bitter. I was pleasantly surprised by this (especially the woodiness); it's such a shame that its reputation has been so badly tarnished by the godawful keg version.

Dark amber to chestnut colour, moderate sized
slightly amberish white head; aroma of toasted rye bread, some floral, toasted nutty and butterscotch notes; taste of dried fruity, roasted nutty, butterscotch and floral notes; surprisingly good ale...or maybe it is just because of the atmosphere ( tasted in a pub in England during the semi-final of Englad vs. Croatia at 1:0) :) ShivanDragon (6071) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2018

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2017 not has this in many years but I can't say i have missed it. Low quality English ale Itstasty (154) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2017
Cask @ The Board Inn, Howden, East Yorkshire.
Chestnut brown. Clear body, malt and a touch of sweetness, bit dull really.
A favourite with traditional older British bitter drinkers.

Cask at the Blue Post in North Frodingham. Dry, earthy, malty and biscuity. Better than I remembered to be fair, certainly better than the canned bitter. Antzrhere (181) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2016 Seems to be the go to pint when all the bar has is Fosters and Corona. Where do you start? It looks good, it is full bodied and the taste is creamy, malty and inoffensive (which scores it 80% of its points), but beyond that its an English old man?s session beer, sorry.
A bit like silky dish water. Without sounding snobish, people buy this simply because pubs they frequent sell it and that?s what they remember getting merry on last time. Still, its not the worst beer I’ve ever had. BlackHaddock (9705) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2016
I was really surprised to find I had never reviewed/rated this beer having drank it thinking I have over a number of years. Anyway I had two hand-pulled pints in two different pubs while in Filey, Yorkshire on 21st Aug 2016. Bog standard, but decent UK Bitter, brown bodied, full off-white head. More maltys notes in both the nose and taste than whatever hops are used, easy drinking session Bitter than looked after correctly can (and was on the 21st Aug) be well worth trying.
