mr_h (6008) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Cask by handpump at State Bar, Glasgow - clear red brown, bubbly off-white head, roasted malt and nutty aroma, dark chocolate, malty flavour, easy to drink, malty aftertaste

BlackHaddock (7746) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
Taken at a local pub on 29th Nov 2011, hand pulled into a UK pint sleeve.

Amber/golden hue to the body with a cream coloured frothy head sat on top, the sparkler at the end of the swan’s neck ensuring the beer took a while to settle in the glass (and give that frothy crown).

The aroma was more malt than hop, roasted/toasted malts to be precise, nuts too.

Semi-sweet malty flavour, biscuity/bready feel to the taste; smooth and easy to drink. A dry bitterness arrives towards the end of each sip, just to remind you this is a UK Bitter not a creamy, sweet brew.

berkshirejohn (6687) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2011
Cask at the White Lion, Tenterden. Golden amber witha dense cream head; malty aroma; smooth, with a caramel flavour with a touch of red fruit; the finish is light and biscuity with some gently bitter hops. A workmanlike bitter - fine, but not exceptional.

worldbeertaste (1818) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2011
Melon skin, smoke, plum smell. Clean brown colour with a frothy offwhite heae. Light thin medium body. Rich wood, smokey and malt. Starts medium bitter with an ash finish. Toasty

wheresthepath (2405) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2011
[Cask at the Hobgoblin, High Wycombe] Amber with a moderate white head. Caramel at first, with roasted hints. Odd but enjoyable savoury biscuit flavour develops before a smooth finish. Nice. c6

harrisoni (19408) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2010
Cask handpull at The Pheasant Ashford. Clear pale chestnut colour. Lasting creamy head from sparkler. Malty aroma. Lovely rich mid brown malts. I mean its a tasty malty best bitter. Ticks all the boxes with an extra one for being just damn good. The reason I like drinking bitter.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2010
Cask, King’s Head, Carlisle. Very smoky flavoured ruby coloured ale. Dry mouthfeel and finish, malty aroma and very much in the Jennings style.

greenmanalishi (553) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2010
Cask, Manchester. Pours ruby brown with very small off-white head. Malty, smooth, medium body, roastiness.

tommann (3972) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2010
Cask at the Bridge, Kingswinford. Poured really dark brown with a small head. Aroma was roasted malt and coffee. Had abready start and a coffee on the finish. Quite watery.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber with a small white head. Faint malt aroma. Pleasant sweet malty taste with a little earth to stop it becoming too intense. Some bitterness. Excellent straightforward bitter of the type I always enjoy.
