illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Cask at Dickens Tavern in London, near Paddington Station. Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma has lots of toffee malts. Malt backbone of toffee, caramel, and grains that is balanced by a mild herbal bitterness. A tad sweeter and fruitier than many of the other bitters I sampled. Subtle tea flavors on the finish. Not too shabby.

mabel (8717) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
[661-20070923] Cask @ Prince of Wales (Didcot, OX). Citrus aroma background has a bit of fruity caramel, paprika, and malty grains. Clear, amber brown body with a small long-lasting foamy off-white head. Spicy citrus hops flavour hints at paprika. Medium body thoroughly coats the mouth. Interesting and almost repeatable but could be a little cloying.
