Davros IX (359) - 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.

thepatrickman (1347) - Jevington, 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.

hawthorne00 (3951) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2017
Tap (keg, but this ABV). Light amber with a small white head. Aroma of biscuit, peach, light spices. Light bodied certainly, but not quite watery. Biscuit, butterscotch. Fruit gets a little lost. Firm spicy bitterness at end Nice quaffable golden bitter. Very much the sort of beer you could have a pint of at lunchtime and still be useful in the afternoon.

Cask. Golden copper color. Earthy and slightly fruity hop aroma, rich buttery caramel and biscuity malt. Awesome.

Cask, Mariners Great Yarmouth. Dark golden appearance with white foam head. Very little aroma, nothing really discernable. Tastes of slight caramel, citrus hint, apple, light honey and orange zest . Quite like the aftertaste, honey with orange zest although not too strong as to be expected for an ABV of 3.6 I guess. Not a bad beer. As an ex seafarer, I like the fact that the brewer makes a donation to the UK Seafarers charity.

Cask. Creamy White good mostly lasting head. Dark yellow colour. Light malty and hoppy aroma. Light bitter flavor. Average light bitter finish. Oily palate. Boring.

3.4

Cask at The Chamberlain, London. Clear amber with a small off white head. Aroma of spicy hops, malt, ripe dark fruits, toffee and caramel. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter. Light to medium bodied with very soft carbonation.
