SilkTork (5854) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2017
500ml bottle at the SS Great Britain cafe in Bristol docks. Dry bitter with some rasping hops. Drinkable, but not my thing.

BeerViking (5042) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2017
Cask at the Five Bells, brown with little head, malty and slightly earthy nose, sweet and lightly bitter palate.

Finn (8149) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2017
Fra cask på Commercial Rooms Bristol 30 Apr 17. Mørk gylden. Lavt skum med litt farge. Lett nøttearoma. Smaken aprikos. Blir syrlig bitter etter hvert. Gjennomgående karamellpreg.

Rune (13508) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2017
Cask ale, half pint shared with Finn at Commercial Rooms (JDW). Nitro creamy white head blanketing the glass. Deep amber body. Caramel on the nose. Caramel, dough and herbal hops to the taste buds. Mid-sweet bitter ending. Traditional Brit bitter. (Bristol 30.04.2017).

john44 (3392) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2017
Bottle. This bottle is 4.5%. Amber Brown in colour. Good off-white foamy head. Malty; grainy malts, caramel. Fruity; raisins and apples. Hoppy; rather earthy hops. Sweet malty fruity and quite dry throughout. OK. Easy drinking. (2015-09-14)

undercurrent25 (2202) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2016
Pours a brown colour. Taste is malty and bitter with a cerealy and biscuity finish

Stuu666 (14841) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Cask at the standing order. Pours clear dark amber, nose is dull toffee, taste is toffee, biscuit, crisp.

Beese (3210) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 14 May 2012. Poured a hazy, deep golden colour, with a spotty white head. Aroma of malt, straw and floral hops. Caramel in the flavour, with biscuity malt and raisins. Finish was a note of fruity esters, chewy grain and brown sugar.

TomCouch (23) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2013
Nice caramel colour. What I would call your classic bitter. Pleasant flavour with a light bitter taste.

berkshirejohn (6654) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2012
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Golden amber with a loose cream head; floral aroma - perhaps a dash of elderflower? - dry, biscuity malt flavour; and a clean, lightly bitter finish. Fairly average, but a pleasant pint.
