Cask @ market Porter (Apr ’08). Clearn brown colour with thin head. Aroma is fruity, roast malt. Taste is fruity, hops late on, sticky, roasted. Bitter finish, as in aftertaste. Decent beer.

Tasted at the Great British Beer Festival. Dry, low bitterness, easy to drink but prosaic.

Itstasty (117) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2017 Cask @ The Kings Head, Barmby on the Marsh, East Yorkshire. Chestnut brown as described, nice clear pint, off white head. Balanced flavours of malt and hop, caramel but not sweet, is on the mild side of bitter. Easy drinking beer. A good Yorkshire session bitter.

bartlebier (4214) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 1, 2017
Cask halfpint at Monks Walk, Beverley. - earthy black tealeaf bitters meet bitter nuts and chocolate powder touches. Subtle and layered, like a porter/mild buried in a golden ale bitter. Lovely fruity yeast touches and hop nettle tingle while the chestnut malts do more than just sustain . Impressive oldschool/mature sessioner enjoyed in great surroundings.

HogTownHarry (7084) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - APR 19, 2017
September 27, 2015 - At Cask Pub & Kitchen - handpull cask. Clear bright refractive gold, slightly bubbly, with a decent off-white creamy head (lovely lacing). Mild golden ale aroma - pungent grassy bitterness, light grain; taste is also dry with some sharp lightly acidic fresh hop bitterness, very light all round. Light body - heck, it’s a golden bitter and pretty solid, if dull.
