Nice standard bitter that hits the mark. Some people are wanting more than it was intended but it is an easy session beer. If you want something bigger or different, this will not be the one.

RichTheVillan (8457) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2017
Cask at The Old Contemptibles; clear amber pour with a thin white head, aroma has light malts, taste has some sweet malts, light fruit, hint of caramel.

Idiosynkrasie (8220) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2017
500ml bottle [Thanks to Grumbo for the ship motif!]. Clear, redd-ish, dark amber colour with small to average, thick, creamy, moderately lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Malty aroma with a touch of toffee, cheap chocolate, strawy-grainy interference, weak fruity hoppy overtones. Taste is slightly fruity hoppy, hints of red berries, minimally nutty, malty background with a touch of toffee; soft carbonation, creamy palate.

Chestnut taste. Malty aroma with caramel tastes. Nice level of bitterness on the palate. Well balanced and smooth. Good one overall.

mr_h (6072) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - APR 19, 2016
Cask, 1/2 pint, hand-pulled, Hengler’s Circus, Glasgow (18 Apr 2016), very weak toffee aroma, good bubbly off-white head with good thick lacing, toffee, caramel, creamy, smooth, good carbonation, sweet malty aftertaste.

The_Osprey (9723) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2016
Cask, handpull at The Railway Putney as ’Green Jack Trawlerboys Best Bitter’, 4.6%. Dark amber orange, clear, still, foamy dense white head, thick lacing. Aroma is airy and light, some apple. Body is smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is light, bready, apple peel, varnish, some tang, some twig. Very plain by comparison to, say, the Nethergate bitters I had on the same day. Lacking the character and drinkability that the best beers in the style possess.

mR_fr0g (14036) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Cask at the triangle tavern Lowestoft. Mid amber orange coloured pour with a thin fading head. Aroma is really odd, spicy cinnamon and ginger, caramel, brandy snap sugars. Flavor is composed of medium sweet caramel, toffee apple, spicy orange rind, ginger. Interesting beer. Palate is semi sweet, decent cask condition.
