I had this on tap and it was okay. The malt tone and bitterness is here but nothing stands out. It definately has a dry character but doesnt seem as creamy as other bitters.

Refreshing, but without too much character. A nice hoppy finish, the trade mark of a proper English bitter. Cask at Ye Old Mitre, London.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Cask at the George Inn, London: Pours a clear deep copper bronze with a nicely-lacing white head. Subtle toffee and hop nose. Body starts with some maltiness, thinning toward the semi-bitter, lightly metallic, watery finish. An ok bitter, that has drinkability as its best attribute.

ClarkVV (6081) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2005
Cask conditioned at NERAX 4/28/2005
Dark copper colored beer, small, foamy white head, low retention (a good thing). Light alcohol (or perhaps very dry ester) notes in the aroma, some hints of bananas and soft, caramelly malt. Flavor of light cardboard, grainy malt, rather toasty on the finish. Medium body. No diacetyl noticed.
