AshtonMcCobb (6757) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2017
On cask at the Orange Tree. Appearance - amber with a decent head. Nose - light biscuit and toffee. Taste - biscuit mainly but toffee wedging itself in slightly. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - solid bitter.

Cask, 1/2 pint, hand-pulled at Bon Accord, Glasgow on 17 Sep 2016, weak malty aroma, golden amber with a thin off-white head and thin film of lacing, cereal, fruity flavours, creamy, sweet, good carbonation.

Ruskin’s Bitter z browaru Kirkby Lonsdale to zaskakująco przyjemne piwo. Browar znajduje się Carnforth, miejscowości leżącej tak blisko Morecambe, że żałuję, że się tam nie wybrałem. Ech. To bardzo fajne piwo sesyjne, bowiem słodowość ciasteczkowa i herbatnikowa ma ciekawą i wyraźną kontrę ziołowo-trawiastą. W czasie picia pojawia się fajna nuta toffi, która nieco podbija to nie ukrywajmy niezbyt pełne piwo.

A pale bitter, gentle hop and malt build, nothing particularly exciting about it.

imdownthepub (14943) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Cask conditioned at Stratford upon Avon Beer Festival ’15. Amber with white head. This is a light, thinnish bitter with a caramel, toffee’d hint. Some grassy hop notes, a light bitterness. It’s okay.

Cask at the Vic, Preston. Pours clear golden amber with a thick white head. Aromas of light citrus, pine. Taste is watery though, herbal bitter, if watery finish. Started well...

Cask at The Royal Oak, Ambleside. So so bitter with no outstanding features. Slight wood. Bland and old school.

gegwilson (3752) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Cask in the Water Witch, Lancaster. Amber with a cream head. Pretty short on flavour. A little apricot and citrus. Average at best.

3.6
worldbeertaste (1804) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2012
Nice amber orange with a soapy lasting very lacy creamy head. Smells of citrus hops, straw, malt and cereal. Medium creamy body. Light cereal toasted malt sweetness with some caramel and a bitter hop citrus greapefruit finish. Earthy. A little bitter on the grassy finish. Good balance.
