WaddlingPlatypus (186) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2016
Pint at the Victoria Hotel, Durham. Amber pour with a thick and frothy white head (although it was not a great pour to begin with). Aroma of boiled eggs and bread. Weak and bitter flavour, almost watery. Sub-par.

Seffle (475) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2016
Draught at Milecastle Inn, 160626. Clear dark amber with creamy white head. Clean malty nose without acidity. Full fresh palate with rather crisp bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Floral with a light degree of bitterness this thin bitter beer seems brewed for ale skeptics. Needs more substance and even a bit of sweetness before it can be a crowd pleaser.

Cask (William Jameson JDW, Sunderland) - Copper in colour. Dried fruit in the aroma. Raisins, caramel and some slightly tart hints in the taste.

Cask conditioned handpump Althorp Coaching Inn Great Brington 03/04/13. A brown beer with a white head and lace. A malty note to this with a thin fruity nose but lots of character in the mouth. Lots of chocolate flavour. Interesting and tasty. Just needs a better nose.

ManVsBeer (11446) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2012
Full-bodied, thick textured bitter with little bitterness and dry character. Deep golden copper in colour.

Pint at The Wheatsheaf, Felling. Clear amber with a rocky white head. I think the sauvingon flavour must be part of the house style, because its there again in this beer, but there’s a decent toffee flavour. Thin texture, a bit ordinary to be honest.

tombyars (1802) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2011
First tasted this in the Bon Accord, Glasgow in April 1995. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear gold in colour with a thin white head. Floral hops in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a slightly citric note of grapefruit and lime. Floral hop resins impart a bitter aftertaste. Well balanced finish. An ok session bitter.

Amber colour with a thin head, not much aroma, malty taste but not very good.
