Cask (Eagle Ale House, Clapham)VastActiv (7032) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2013
Pleasant bitter aroma - a classic English bitter. Taste follows the aroma, but leads to a nice dry finish with all the bittering hops. Some staleness to the malts, mushrooms even. Palate a bit limp.

Cask. Excellent reddish pour, with beautiful creamy head. Decent malty nose. Solid malty character, very creamy and smooth finish. Buttery toffee. Somewhat nitrous-y, which may turn some off, but I’m a sucker for malt and cream. thepegjett (1260) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2012
A - fruity with buttery caramel

O - ehh.. tombyars (1702) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 30, 2012
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale copper in colour with a thin white head. Slight eggy aroma with hints of sweet toffee in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with sweet toffee notes laced through. Flinty taste of harsh hop resins give a sharp bitter aftertaste which lasts through. Finish is bitter with metallic notes strong in the palate. An ok bitter but nothing special going on. mjs (7259) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 11, 2011
