Cask at the White Hart Chobham, 02/02/13. Clear copper brown with a thin off white head that retains well. Nose carries malt, grain, light hops, touch of wood, light caramel. Taste comprises summer fruits, ribena, some hop presence, sugars, caramel. Medium body, fine carbonation, dry bitter finish. A decent enough bitter.

Cask ½ pint at Crispin, Wokingham, on June 14, 2017.
Malty, slight berries, fruity hoppy taste. Bitter, rose petals aftertaste. Smooth, low CO2 mouthfeel. Lasting medium high bitterness. Clear light brown color, off-white head with lenty of lacing. Malty, a bit fat, fruity hoppy scent.
A bit too bitter for me to have several of, nice for a small one though.

Cask at Swan Inn, Farnborough. 14/09/16. Slightly sweet aroma... I think. Bright amber. Creamy slightly off-white head. Medium bitter - a sourness I’m not keen on. Light, smooth. Goes down easily but the taste is just limited to the previously mentioned sourness. Had it once before. Gave it a second chance. Just don’t particularly rate it.

Cask at the Greyfriar, Reading. Deep amber with a middling cream head. Toffee, earth, a touch of lemon and a smear of fart. The malt is definitely in charge of this very traditional style bitter. Decent rich mouthfeel but I don’t like farts in my pint.

Pours chestnut with a small head. Taste is a nice even bitterness, perfect for right after work.

BeerViking (5039) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Cask at the Ealing JDW, amber wit a tight white head, light biscuit nose carries through onto the palate. Lightly dry-sweet with nutty malt, hints of toffee and citrus. Bitterness emerging more in the finish. Traditional yet hoppy.
