detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, - APR 23, 2007
Pint at the Bridge House, SE1. Golden body, small head, clear. Very light, lots of hops, some lemony citrus - very dry. Malt sweetness in the finish. Has a creamy mouth feel. Very easy to drink, pleasant pint. It was hot day when I had a couple of pints of Regatta (Marathon Sunday 2007 - nothing better than having a pint watching poor folks running 26.4 miles!), and it was a hugely enjoyable pint.

jjsint (3116) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2017
Handbill cask at the Bowling Green, Leicester. Blond, clear with a small white head. Floral buttery and grainy aroma. Taste is worse: malty, buttery and messy. Unfortunately the finish is long. Not tasty but I don’t completely hate it.

2.5
Grumbo (2955) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2017
Cask at the Greyhound, Ipswich. Pours pale gold with a bubbly off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, hop, grain, fruit and grass. Toward heavy sweetness, light bitterness. Light body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Had this a fair few times years ago and I remember it being a lot better back then.

2.2
Beese (2776) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2017
Cask at Prince Charles, Euston. Very warm, in fairness. Malt heavy, and quite metallic. Some floral hop aroma.

GuideDogSaint (1502) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUL 8, 2017
Cask half at the King’s Tun, Kingston. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Malty aroma and taste with biscuit. Sweet finish

2.7
ManVsBeer (10485) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2017

2.9
dchad56 (513) - - APR 20, 2017
Cask - pale yellow with decent white head. No carbonation. Fruity aroma, good mouthfeel, very easy drinking - light consistency - refreshing. Ok though weak aftertaste.

2.9
downender (8660) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2017
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol March 2017. Golden in colour, with a small, off-white, head. A thin tasting pale ale, with a hint of stone fruits, lager malts and moderately bitter finish. Dull all round and way below Adnams’ normal standards.

2.9
niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2017
Cask at Arnold Machin (JDW), Newcastle under Lyme. Pours golden with a white head. Sharp citric golden ale. Too harsh.
