theprof (824) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2016
Cask. Aroma yeasty and malt bread but no great scent. Pours copper with a thin top. Broken diminishing lace. Soft and mellow to taste. Easy drinking to be sure but also a bit bland and flat. One might spend an evening drinking this but why?

kwik-lime (1861) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2016
Cask at the Pembury Tavern in Hackney. Light toffee malt and a hint of citrus. Easy drinking session beer but lacking the punch to make it more interesting.

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2015
Cask at The Market Porter, London Bridge. As Isle of Purbeck Best Bitter. Dark orange, still, small foamy off-white head, full lacing. Aroma is light and bready. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is dark bread, thin malts, soft musty yeast character, light fruits with some varnished wood throughout. Standard classic British bitter.

Bree Louise. Cask. Hazy amber beer, residual pale cream colour head. Palate is light and slightly dry. Modest fine carbonation. Touch of candy fruits. Mellow orange that has a whiff of sherbet. Light semi dry finish. Pretty quaffable.

Leighton (20548) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise - London. Pours hazy amber-gold with a slight creamy head. Some leathery citrus on the nose, grainy bread, dried fruits. Light to medium sweet flavor with simple pale bread, some peach, strawberry, dried berries, faint bitter hay and leaves. Light bodied with fine carbonation; OK condition. Nice balance on the finish, malt dominant, white grape, some further other fruit character. Very drinkable bitter.

leaparsons (10400) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle. Golden brown with a thin foam. Aromas are Weetabix with lemon and bready yeast. Nutty tea with pepper. Flavours are lemony yeast with biscuit and dry, spicy black tea. Soapy with some fruity bitterness on the finish but overall this is quite flat.

Aroma is faint. Some malts not much else. Dark yellow colour small head. Taste is a meille malty thingy. Light body, no aftertaste. Easy to drink, no other positives. Have had a lot better beers with the same or less abv.
