this is a run of the mill bitter good to drink if you want to drink a lot well brewed and never changes.

Tap at a pub in Chelsea. Clear golden with no real head. Aroma is citrus, hop and caramel. Taste follows with some bitterness but really not much. A bit watery

rumore (757) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 24, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours intense gold, fairly transparent with very fine white foam. Aroma is delicate fruity, some honey and caramel. Body is a little light, with practically absent carbonation (it was served pump). Taste is low in sweetness, with sensible bitterness. Finish is short.

Fresh Cask, wheatsheaf. Pours pale light Amber with a lovely foam head. Scent is very light notes of crystal malt. Taste is light bitter, fairly standard with a slightly sour finish. Good.

@Cask. Rica pero flojea conforme pasa el tiemo. Dark, malty, complex and satisfyingly thick without being cloying, yet very rrefreshing and all at 3.8%! A stunning beer.

Handpump ar Doggett's Coat & Badge in London. Orange bright semi clear pour, ivory little foam so much retention. Nose: roast, hint of oxidation some minor flaws but not bad at all. Almonds too. Mouth: lovely! Watery with soft and silky notes of almonds and a roast and cherry like finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oscar’s wine Bar; York. This was the only non macro on draught, and in fact it is on cask. The beer is in very good condition. Copper color and a thick, lacig head. Smooth creamy palate. Light aroma with grain and hops. Flavor is dry and bitter, and the hop flavor is more prominent here. My first cask bitter of my 2016 travels l, and I enjoyed this more than I expected after seeing the previois ratings.

Towey1989 (3257) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2016
Cask at The Wickstead Arms, Nantwich. A clear pale amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, some fruits, slight butter and subtle bready malts. Taste of caramel, toffee, bready malts, slight butter, a little fruit and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, slightly buttery, malty bitterness in the finish. Not a bad bitter overall but quite buttery, a dry finish too.

mabuzzer (909) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2016
Cask @ Blue Pig. Amber, slightly have with a thin white head. Fruity aroma, taste is citrus hoppy, with a little sweetness too. Ok
