Parmenion777 (240) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2017
UPDATED: APR 23, 2017 Pours a clear rich golden colour with a small creamy off white head. The aroma is bready, some malt and grassy hops. A similar bready taste, toffee malt, some grassy hop bitter flavours. Good body, smooth and moderate bitterness in the finish. Very nice.

The_Osprey (7729) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2017
Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall as Bowman Quiver Bitter, 4.5%. Currently a top 50 bitter. Golden orange, still and clear with a foamy white head, leaving full lacing. Aroma is bready malts, white bread, breadsticks. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is again bready, nice tangy astringent hops, with a musty wood linger. Its a well made bitter. Balanced and drinkable with a good assertive old fashioned hop character. Nice condition. If I were rating to style Id give it a perfect 5. It is the epitome of bitter.

Cask. Gold in colour. Aromatic hops. Very fruity (lots of citrus, grapefruit). Very hoppy (floral, grassy and resiny hops). Underlying caramel and toffee malt. Nice mildly bitter throughout. Very refreshing. Moreish. Dry citrus hoppy finish. Super pint! (2008)

This was really good, I hadnt looked it up before I ordered it and was so pleased with it. Grassy aroma but a lovely bitter taste with plenty of malt.

Rune (12061) - Troms, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2013
Cask, 1/3 pint at GBBF 13, day 1. Clear golden body. Shiny naked surface. Aromas of grassy hops joined by malty sweetness. Leafy hops and caramel flavours leading to a dry, bittersweet ending. Decent, well blended Brit bitter (London Olympia 13.08.2013).

prawlie (1564) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Half pint at the Great British Beer Festival 2013. Clear golden with a short head. Fair hoppy aroma. Smooth, lightly bitter, smooth enough. Little bit boring though.

Bottle. Clear amber liquid with medium white head. Aroma of flowers, earth, bread, biscuit, toast and cardboard. Tired. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of bread, earth and biscuit. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice but too old.

smooth mouthfeel, average standard pale ale that offers nothing memorable. Good balance of malt/hops.
