2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pint on draught. Clear golden colour with a good, frothy head that dissipates but leaves a good lacing. Fairly mild aroma with some yeast. Slight sweetness, some roasted malt flavours, a little toast and a moderate bitterness. Not quite balanced enough, needs some more bitterness or some astringency, but a passable session beer.
Cask (The Cricketers, Cambridge). Clear amber color. Huge size, white head, stays. Citrus, sweet, bit dirty in aroma. Sweet, lemon lollipop, caramel in taste. Caramel, sweet and citrus in aftertaste. Quite fizzy for a cask beer. Happens. PorterPounder69 (6) - - MAR 19, 2018 does not count

Cask. Rather bland and boring but without any obvious faults. Sweet and fruity. macca147 (870) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2018
Cask. Pours a pale copper gold with a thin head. Aroma is biscuity malt, mild caramel, orange and sweet malt. Biscuity malt and mild pine/caramel flavours dominate. Mild citrus. A little bit of a dull flavour palate, and the hops are not discernible. Thin to medium bodied. Mild lingering bitterness. A little bit too thin and dull for my liking. Drinkable, but average.

Cask @ The Wadkin, Osgodby, Nr Selby North Yorkshire.
Where to start, its not in my opinion an IPA.
Malty, sweet edge, flavoursome bitter. Easy drinking beer.

Cask @ Duke of Cumberland, Barham. Clear caramelcoloured beer. Sweet, malty, light bitter, some cardboard and tartness. Meh. nickd717 (5094) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 16, 2017
So everyone's up in arms because they called a bitter an IPA. The nerve! Cask in the UK. Slightly hazy amber with a lacy off-white head. Aroma is caramel, breakfast tea. Flavor is very malty, caramel, old leaves, toffee, very slight bitterness. Feel is smooth, pretty light. Basically an average bitter, not at all an IPA. christof1871 (12) - - SEP 23, 2017

This is fine as a standard bitter/ale but this is not an ipa as many others have said. Steer well clear latoya (3) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2017 does not count
Well I am sat in The Magpie, innit. Trying not to cry since Gary never turned up at KFC to share a bucket of chicken wit me. The bastard stood me up and I thought I would look for him in his yard. My bestie, Destiny told me to batter the prick when I see him.
So anyways I am here sat drinking a pint of this shit. It reminds me of Gary. Smells cheap, it's all rather flaccid with no oomph. It talks big, but when you get down to it there is nothing to excite me here.
Oh why do I waste tears on this arsehole. I am going to confront him at work later this week, Mark my words.
