(2017 London) 1 Pint Cask @ Queens Arms (Kensington). Clear amber, tanned head, mocha. Caramel, toffee sugar, butterscots sweet UK malts nose, very nice. Taste is caramel, toffee, sweet round UK malts, candy, biscuit, caramel. Lovely round malty cask body. Very neat straightforward sweet malts, surprisingly lovely. Scores are quite low on here but I liked it a lot.

Towey1989 (3048) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2017
Cask at The Cock Inn, Leek (Joules) A clear deep golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of bready malts, caramel, a hint of fruit and subtle earthy hops. Taste of caramel, some bready malts, a little cream, a hint of fruit and subtle earthy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, dryish, malty bitterness in the finish. A simple but quintessential English bitter. Solid.

Cask @ The Wadkin, Nr Selby, N. Yorkshire. Nice pour, light golden body. Limited nose. Taste-wise nice malt with a biscuit sweetness. Easy drinking....

Tap. Dark golden color, slightly yellowish foam. Delicate aroma: flowers, light fruit esters, malt and light sweetness. Taste: malty, a little biscuit, light fruit shades, berry jam, watery, pleasant mild hop bitterness, very drinkable.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2017 Very light and easy to drink and reasonably pleasant. Not the very best but by no means the worst and I'd certainly have again

Davros IX (424) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2017
Cask at the Counting House. A true English session bitter and I had forgotten just how good this beer can be. A good flavour of biscuit malt, perfectly balanced by some bitter hops. It looked great in the glass and perfectly complemented the pie & chips and catch-up with a good friend over lunch. This was perfectly kept and served and, in my opinion, a brilliant expression of how good a proper English bitter can be. Flavoursome, appealing texture, low abv, great to look at and a pleasure to drink.

Kavu (4981) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2017
0,5l from cask @ Angleterre. Pours clear golden with a medium head. Aroma is slightly fruity malts. Flavor is fruity malts with some hops. Good.

thepatrickman (1398) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2017
Cask. Very light, both in color and flavor, but also very pleasant. It’s balanced and subtle, with a refreshing, crisp maltiness and a light bit of floral hoppiness at the end.
