Cask at Borrowdale Youth Hostel. Deep gold with a thick white head. Dusty at first, develops a decent sweet berry and lemon flavour before a mildly dry, mildly bitter finish. Overall just OK.

Cask at Crown, Picadilly. Clear pale golden beer with a small offwhite head. Malty fruity aroma, bready, some spices. Bready flavor, some baking yeast, fruity, some spices. A bit unclean.

MartinT (9795) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
This creamy Premium Bitter relies on flowers, oranges and a tea leaf-like bitterness to sculpt a fine pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A milky head of foam sits atop the misty amber.
-All flavors are ably balanced.
-Mouthfeel is as smooth as can be.
-Drinkability is as high as expected, without having to cut back on flavor.
-This may not have many distinguishing features, but it remains a pleasant pint of real ale.

On cask at The Pump House, Brighton.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2017 Drunk on cask in arnside after a long walk went down a treat nice ring from top to bottom of pint quite full bodied with citrus hints and a nice bitter finish.

dynamiteninja (1853) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2015
Cask at the Ralph Fitz Randal (JDW), Richmond. Ages since I had this. Still excellent, but a little less bitter and more Marstonisfied than it used to be maybe a decade ago. Gold body. Medium white head with excellent lacing. Hops, tangerine, sulphur, spice, grass, bubblegum. Tangy with a bitter finish. A nice beer.

Mr_Pink_152 (4878) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Part of my 2013 backlog. Deep amber colour with a white head. Aroma has a touch of hops, the taste has some citrus hops. But a dull beer.

jamesie1857 (2110) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2014
On cask at White Post, somewhere in rural Nottinghamshire - Clear golden body with a small, foamy and off-white head. The aroma is fruity, with bitter pines. Grapefruit, hops and malt-sweetness in the flavour, is finished off by a long, dry and bitter finish. Better than the bottle.
