Cask; Regular.
The first and arguably the most popular of Loose Cannon’s beers. ‘Bridge’ as it’s affectionately known always brings a smile to the face of its drinker with that delicious floral and slightly sweet finish. A fantastic session ale that covers a lot of bases for a wide range of people making it a popular choice for parties.
Hops: Fuggles, Amarillo & Cascade Hops
Tasting Notes: Copper coloured, traditional ‘bitter’. It kicks off with a good bitter bite, followed by plenty of flavour. A full and satisfying roundness.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2017 one of the nicest pints I ever had in UK. Great balance of hop flavour, caramel, slight honey.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 Straight from the barrel at Loose Cannon in Abingdon. Caramel and dry hops flavour. Lots of depth give way to very drinkable session bitter.

Cask at the Brewery Tap, Abingdon. Good dark bitter, reasonable carb, balanced bitter and caramel.

Medium amber bitter with typical flavour of autumn fruits and just a hint of toffee. A little flat but quite well hopped for bitterness rather than aroma. Fairly standard stuff but judging by the other comments on here I may have had a rather tired pint so will try to re-assess when I next visit a pub that serves it.

berkshirejohn (6651) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2016
Cask at the Royal Oak, Knowl Hill. Chestnut with a dense cream head; fruity aroma - cherries and red fruit; fruity taste with underlying well roasted malts; then a clean English hop bitterness followed by lingering biscuit. A well-made bitter, satisfying and easy drinking.

Leighton (22301) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2015
Cask at the Lyndhurst - Reading. Pours clear copper with a frothy, light khaki head. Mild bready malts in the nose, hints of butter and leaves, grains. Light sweet flavor with lightly toasted grainy bread, toffee accents, a little earth and leaf. Light bodied with fine carbonation; the condition is decent. Nicely balanced on the finish, with more simple, toasty malts, subtle leafy bitterness, a dash of toffee. Easygoing bitter.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Cask at Plum Pudding, Milton. Pours chestnut with off white head. Smooth dark fruit, plenty of hops, bitter finish. Good bitter.

On tap at White Hart pub in Fyfield(?). Flowery and malty smell with some light toffee. Siliar taste. Tasty and very easy to drink.

Gravity dispense at Ascot Racecourse Beer Festival 2012 - 06/10/12. Clear chestnut brown with a thin off white head that soon bids a farewell! Caramel malt, toffee, subtle hints of mango and a little tropical fruit on the nose. Tastes of toffee, dark caramelised sugar, a little malt and some woodiness. Medium bodied leading to a bitter dry finish.

[email protected] Beer Festival 2012. Copper colour, with mediumsized foamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel and crystal malty with some mild nutty notes. Also some slight ripe fruits and mild grassyness. Flavour is rather similar with a nice bitter finish.
