Chewy brown butter and toffee - old school bitter a bit like Sambrooks Junction.

BeerViking (5049) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2017
Cask at the Yorkshire Grey, deep gold with a lasting white head, malty lemon and cocoa nose, full bodied for a golden ale, creamy-sweet with a crisp peppery and hoppy bitterness. Excellent.

Theydon_Bois (20656) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2017
Cask at the Cock, 01/03/17. Copper to brown with a beige head that soon dissipates to nyadda. Nose is biscuit malt, light spice, toffee, dark fruit rinds. Taste comprises brown bread, light tobacco, biscuit, spice, dates, toffee. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, drying close with a bitter edge. Ok bitter.

Scopey (15753) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2017
Cask at Cocky T. It pours clear rich amber - brown with a small white head. The aroma is toasty grain, wood, leather, musty, dull fart, toffee and dried fruits. The taste is bitter - sweet, farty, toffee, raisin, sultana, wood, twiggy, leather, cereal, bit of spice and tannin with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A bit old-school but not without its charms. Fair.

AndrewC (379) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle. Aroma of vines. Sweet malty best bitter. Soft in the mouth. Some rose on the finish. Nice.

theprof (1254) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2016
Cask. Aroma of basement yeast and nut malts. Pours dark amber with persistent if broken white lacing. The taste is balanced well with biscuit malt and hop fruits in equal measure. An easy drinking standard bitter.

Grumbo (3981) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Cask at the Yorkshire Grey, Grays Inn Road, London. Pours tawny brown with a lasting bubbly cream coloured head. Aroma of caramel, fruit, malt, hop and light nut. Medium sweetness, moderate bitterness slow to develop. Medium body, sticky texture. Soft carbonation. Finish is sweet and nutty. A very tasty bitter.

ManVsBeer (10954) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2016
Cask @ Yorkshire Grey, London. Golden-amber with a small head. Mildly malty easy enough drinking ale with a small sweetness. Passably sessionable, although not at the price in the pub in which I found it!

The_Osprey (9163) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Cask HP at The Ivy House Nunhead. As ’Bedlam Benchmark’. Amber orange, still, slight haze, foamy off white head. Aroma is bready, ice pops. Body is smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is bready, crackers, quite watery malt sugars. Simple bitter. Not bad.

Leighton (22329) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2016
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Offie and Toffee. Pours clear golden-amber with a frothy, off-white head. The nose holds simple, lightly toasted malts, some grain, leaves. Light sweet flavour with an ashy, cigarette-like off-note, some further lightly toasted and bready malts, mild caramel, leafy bitterness, hints of dried berries. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with more sweet and bready malt character, mellow earthy and leafy bitterness, more caramel and toffee, and more of that odd ashy note. Besides the off-note, it’s fairly pedestrian stuff.
