ManVsBeer (10470) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2017
Cask @ Fire Station, Waterloo, London. Golden with a small head. There’s a graininess to its very pale texture and doesn’t feel like a best bitter at all. Perhaps a wrong pump clip?

ippopotamo36 (2383) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 23, 2017
Cask at Londinum at Tree Folks, Rome-Italy. Amber/orange pour quite bright, off-white foam. Nose: English malty character, biscuity, nutty. Mouth: easy, watery, malty finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen1 (5888) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2015
Håndpumpet pint på Maynard Arms, Crouch End, med Kitty: en deilig pint i beste klassiske engelske tradisjon. Skum som faktisk følger med mot bunnen, supermyk munnfølelse med "tons of flavour" og stort velvære.

Rune (12795) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2015
Half pint, hand pulled cask at The Harp. Next to clear amber. Lacing rings down the glassware. Malt-fruity smell. Taste of caramel and lemony hops followed by a bittersweet ending. Medium bodied. Rather typical for the style (London 11.07.2015).

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2015
Poured medium amber with a tan ring. Aroma of sweet malt and nuts. Light body, flavour is medium sweet, lightly bitter nuttiness.

3.4
BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2015
Sunday lunchtime pint (29th March 2015): Chequers, Walthamstow E17. Hand-pulled into a UK pint sleeve: looked fine, light amber with a full head with longevity. Nice semi-sweet bitter with enough about it to sit and enjoy. Malts just about rule the flavours although the finish is drying and bitter.

2.5
Vladivostok (485) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Odd flavour which I can only liken to spirit - surgical or methylated rather than anything you can actually drink. Could have been an off batch although there was no smell of vinegar. That aside, not hugely hoppy and toffee seems to be the next most noticeable feature. Must try again when I get the chance.

Beese (2743) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2014
Cask gravity at the Watford Beer Festival 2014. Poured a light hazy copper, with a rocky white head. Aroma of bread, hay and brown sugar. Mouthful of grass in the flavour, with some candy sugar and toasted malt. Finish was bitter resin, dry straw and lemongrass. A bit on the bitter side to be a session bitter...

3.3
mR_fr0g (12126) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2014
Cask gravity at the Watford beer fest 2014. Orange light amber coloured pour with fleeting white head. Aroma is parfummed, nutty caramel and berry hop. Flavour is nice raisin, caramel and slight crisp finish. Little plastic note. Palate is medium sweet, berry. OK.
