As BestivAle @ Camp Bestival, Dorset Decent enough brew, nothing out of the ordinary. I think ’a palate of...vanilla’ might be stretching it somewhat! Nevertheless good tang of citrus and lovely bread/toast backbone.

Cask at Akkurat. Clear golden with some bubbles on top. Muted aroma with some caramel, honey, flowers and citrus. Sweet honey caramel with citrus and sweet apples and a grassy bitter finish that cling on in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, low soft carbonation, a bit oily. A nice thirst quencher, though maybe on the sweet side.

[email protected] Light copper. Light floral, malty, bready nose. Soft bittered. Slight earthy, bisquity malty, some citrus green hoppyness. Ok, nothing too remeberable.

Bottle shared at the Waterfront Inn, IoW during the Isle of Wight Jolly. Pours clear yellow-gold with a white head. Light oxidation in the aroma, some bread, caramel. Light sweet flavor, some sugary bread, leafy bitterness, toasty grains. Light in body with fine carbonation. Simple sugary finish with lightly toasted malts, notes of oxidation, grain, caramel. Meh.

jjsint (3604) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2014
Cask at the Clarendon Arms, Cambridge. Clear, light honey brown. Very little head. Scent of nuts, toast, bit of wood shavings. Taste is a crisp, clean bitter with a slight hoppy bite in the finish. Body is fuller than would be expected. This is a very very good basic bitter. Surprisingly good. And that’s my 46 English counties, done in style.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
On cask at White Hart, Witham. Pours amber with white head. A little watery in texture, lacking in hops or bitternes. It’s an average bitter.

SlackerMads (3583) - DENMARK - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle. Light hazy golden with a small off white head. Brown sugar, caramel, grain, light wort. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and light bitter. Sugary, uninteresting.
