Oh, now this is something. This kicks that overrated ESB all over the pub...
Cask at the Dove, Hammersmith. It pours clear golden with a medium, sturdy white head. The aroma is malt - driven, bitter - sweet, toasty grains, cereal and caramel. The taste is dry, quite clean, soft, mellow, bitter - sweet, cereal, toasty grain, earth and nut with a soft finish. Light body and soft carbonation. It is a bit too light for my liking, but there is nothing wrong with it. Fine enough. john44 (3331) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Cask. Amber Gold in colour. Malty (toasty malts, caramel). Fruity (citrus orange). Hoppy (slight grassy hops). OK flavour for low ABV. Mild bitterness throughout. Dryish hoppy finish. Sessionable. Drinkable. (2008)

Tried at the Horse and Hockey, Waddington. Amber colour with an off white head. Aroma is sawdust, grain and light malt. Taste is dull. Very thin and watery. Ktwse (5358) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2016
Pours clear amber with flat head. Aroma of bread, caramel and light citrus. Taste is mellow bitter with a lightly fruity finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation. jjsint (3437) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2016
Handpull cask at the Mawson Arms, Chiswick. Golden brown, clear with a loose-ish white head. Nutty, sulphury smell with a touch of earthy hop. Clear, bittersweet sulphury taste. Some toffee apple in the finish. Did this used to be a lot better or have I ’outgrown’ it? Either way perhaps not one of Fuller’s better offerings.

11/7/2009 1:02:48 PM Cask at Mad Bishop and Bear. Amber body with slight head. Nose of caramel, malts. Medium caramel flavour, watery with hops. Some fruits too. Fair enough. lusikka (7819) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2015
Cask @ Pullman Bar, Helsinki. Pours a golden colour with a foamy head. Aroma of grains, grassy hops and some hay. Flavour of grassy bitterness, some floral notes, menthol, nuts and mild toffee sweetness. Light bodied. Easy. olio (10471) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2015
Cask @ Pullman.KansaiBeerLvrs (5305) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2015
Pours clear golden color with a small white head. Fruity and grassy aroma, some herbs. Flavor is also fruity and juicy, some mild malt notes and hay. Simple.
Chiswick pours a crystal clear orange gold with a doughy biscuit aroma. The taste is biscuits, tobacco, very very light caramel. Quite nice, still not sold on tobacco flavors in a beer though... DrGD (111) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2015
On tap @Old Joint Stock. Nice copper colour with small white foam. Aromas of caramel, malts, biscuit. Taste has a strong malty character, caramel, fruits, hoppy notes. A bit thin but well rounded and very tasty for its low alcohol content. A good example of an English bitter.
