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.

Nov, 2003 Filtered bottle. Special Bitter. I enjoyed Goddard’s Fuggle Dee Dum so much I opened this bottle of Special Bitter. Mmmm. Chris Coleman seems to be doing things right. A restrained yet tasty session bitter. Wonderfully balanced. [3.3]
Jan, 2015 500ml dark bottle, filtered, from Beers & Bottles, Southampton. Scrum(diggity). 4%. A drinkable though unremarkable bottled British bitter. Pale golden amber. Some soft fruit. Nothing much going on here, but inoffensive enough. [2.7]
Cask conditioned – handpump – GBBF. A copper coloured bitter with some citric hop in the aroma, but also a sweetish undertone. The taste is crunchy and malty. Some cracker notes and a touch of late sweetness. Quite nice. scania (188) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2006

Tavern, London. Amber colour, smaall white head. Aroma is wood, some hops and quite rich on the malts as well. Flavour is quiite much the same. A rather stereotypical bitter, with no surprises.
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2012 Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 20/05/2012. Amber with a slight, off-white head. Cereal malt notes, with some fruity sweetness and hedgerow hops, leading to a moderately bitter finish. Fine. leaparsons (10499) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2012
Cask, Slug & Lettuce, Leicester. Amber gold with an off white head. Aromas are weetabix and light lemon with trace lime. Earthy with peppery hops. Flavours are dry biscuit with weetabix and pithy, bitter lemon. Clean on the palate with peppery spiciness. Not bad. jmgreenuk (9306) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 28, 2013
Cask at the Craven Arms, Birmingham. Poured a clear amber with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma is malty, but weak. The flavour is weak bitter, a little malty and some citrus hints. A very agreeable and drinkable session beer but I would prefer a little more bitterness if i’m honest.
