Towey1989 (2459) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pale, biscuity malts, some straw, subtle musk and slight earthy hops. Taste of biscuit, slight straw, subtle orange and earthy, floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, biscuit, musky, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Its not bad because its typically English, biscuity malts and musky, earthy hops.

Cask. Golden. Thin top. Faint smell of citrus and malt. Taste is more hoppy with strong lasting bitterness. Thinly bodied and disappointing

MrTipple (4332) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Aroma: light grain malts, not much else. Appearance: brown, small, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: light body, not too much in terms of palate, light grain malts again, maybe some weak caramel too. Overall: light and mellow, bit watery, not the best in its class. Pint at The Raven, Bath.

Cask (CWAF2012)
Gold. Not much aroma - some minerals. Thin and watery. Theres even something a bit chemical about it. I suspect Im not a huge fan of the water this is made from.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2009
Cask in the Market Porter. Alround rating: Pale sweeter malt, the yeast is fairly fruity and a bit earthy, the beer uitself is a bit hazy and seems slightly unclean, its also lacking sulphur which isnt a bad thing coming from burton, the finish has little hop but it remains fairly balanced. Easy drinking.

larsga (7470) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2009
Small white head. Orange slightly hazy body. Fruity caramel toffee aroma, quite faint. Dry-sweetish floral roasty caramel taste, very harmonic and quite strong, with straw notes. Soft, mild mouthfeel, faintly oily. Mid-bodied. Dry floral straw and wooden caramel aftertaste. Lovely! Could drink this all day. (0.25l cask, The Carpenters Arms, Marble Arch, London.)

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2010 Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Mid gold with a small head. Floral hop aroma. Some malt in the taste. Mid to strong bitter finish. Its OK, but dont go searching for it. 21.12.09 Dusty straw aroma with some chipboard. Oaty biscuit taste. Mid bitter finish. Quaffing Santa on the pumpclip, but it doesnt seem particularly seasonal. Rated:5,3,5,4,10:2.7 30.12.10. Same location.Underarm malt aroma with straw. Very sweet and malty with grain. Bit too direct. Rated:5,3,5,4,11:2.8

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2009 Re-rate, cask, White Post Inn, Stanley Common, Derbyshire. So much better; lighth flowery notes with dry malty backbone, assured bittering finish. Original rate 2.4, Cask at Criterion, Lecester, RB crawl 2005. Who will save me from these average ales? Hearty my arse. Burton Bridge ought to know better - stunningly average, no edge to make it worthy of a tag like Hearty.
