theprof (931) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Cask. Bread and biscuit nose. Pours a fine copper chestnut with white lace top. A session bitter with fruity foreground and bitter finish. Be warned once virtually all English bitter tasted like this.

Towey1989 (2695) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
Cask at The Bursley Ale House, Burslem. A clear brown colour with a frothy off white head. Aroma of caramel, some lime, slight bready malts and subtle fruit. Taste of caramel, nuts, some bready malts, slight lime, a little fruit and subtle floral hops. Light bodied but a watery texture. A dry, slightly sulphuric, floral hop bitterness in the finish. A hoppy bitter, some floral tones and sharp lime. However it quite thin, unbalanced and slightly sulphuric. Na.

Cask, Bentley Brook Inn. Rich, juicy, malty bitter. Has some faintly acrid bitterness, some smoke and roast maslt on the tongue and a fairly long, pleasant finish.

2.9
chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Pembury Tavern on 26 February 2011 (noted at 4.1% but it was only a hand-written cask end label so may have been wrong). Deep copper colour - slightly darker than the Leatherbritches Dovedale drunk at the same time. Quite light body - the darker colour may have suggested something a little more substantial. Some spicy hops. A solid, if unspectacular, session bitter.

harrisoni (18402) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2011
Cask gravity at Pembury Tavern. Clear pale chestnut with no head. Its quite a hoppy bitter. Pretty likeable even if condition isnt great. Very likeable bitter. Decent hop on end.

Bottle. Bronzeand low carbonation. Pretty bland lacking any distinctive flavour.Nice label but pretty well a waste of time.
