Cask @ Red Lion Pub, Luton jmgreenuk (9523) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 17, 2017
Piwo w kolorze bursztynowym. W 100% czyste i klarowne. Spokojnie można zobaczyć opuszki palców z drugiej strony szkła. rowne. Piana taka sobie, biała, zwiewna, pozostawia tylko niewielki lacing. W aromacie chleb razowy, biszkopty, trochę karmelu i odrobina toffi. Zapach jest bardzo słaby i szybko się ulatnia.
W smaku podobnie. Dodatkowo muśnięcie ciemnych owoców. Tekstura wodnista. Goryczka niewielka.
Proste, niczym nie zaskakujące piwo. Nudne, po prostu nudne i bez charakteru.
Cask at the Hope and Champion, Beaconsfield. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a long lasting frothy white head. The aroma is sweet malt woofy hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a smooth fresh malty fruit woofy hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. dchad56 (518) - - APR 20, 2017
Cask - Darkish brown, not quite full off white head. Good mouthfeel, little aroma. Easy drinking but little body or finish. Towey1989 (2916) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2017

Taste of caramel, bready malts, some red berries, a hint of mineral, a touch of yeast and subtle spicy, earthy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, slightly fruity, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. A simple, malty bitter with a touch of mineral, fruit and subtle English hops. Ok.

My Bottom Line:Vladivostok (489) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2016
This classic Brown Bitter relies, as expected, on the usual blend of silky caramel malts and balancing leafy hop bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the shiny deep amber glow.
-Yeast character very little fruitiness.
-Mineral undercurrents (hard water) are tasted throughout.
-This is good, but perhaps too generic.
On cask at The Liverpool Arms, Conwy.
Pale amber in colour with a hint of sourness in the profile which mellows as the pint goes down. A fair degree of bitterness without much aroma. Real old school best bitter which is very light in flavour but nonetheless very drinkable.
