Bottle, The Beer Emporium, Sandbach. Pours a lovely golden colour, nice head that lasted down the glass. Aromas of citrus fruits, flavour of toffee, caramel with a good hoppy bitterness. Really enjoyed this beer and would seek out again.

Cask at Marble Arch Inn, Manchester. Pours hazy golden with medium white head. Some hoppiness in aroma, malty, some citrus notes, easy drinkable and bitterish finish: Light to medium bodied. Proper bitter.

Cask. Hazy golden color with creamy white head. Aroma is berries, petroleum, pale malts, classic cask bitter aroma. Taste is berries, petroleum, biscuity. Silky mouthfeel, low carbonation. Nice Real Ale.

Some white fruits in the aroma, golden color, hazy. Juicy taste, quite hoppy, not very much orthodox approach, but I like it.

Wow. I’ve never had the Boddington’s in cask when it was supposed to be good, but this is a classic. A very distinctive dry, hoppy beer with a very dry finish. Drinking this helped me understand the distinctive Northern pale bitter style, different from both the traditional Southern bitters and the new but pale and hoppy golden ales.

LazyPyro (1804) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2017
500ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden colour with a thick one finger white head. Aroma: malts, caramel, grassy citrus hops. Taste: malty and fruity, caramel, grass, citrus, bitter finish. Light body, soft carbonation, easy drinking. Great bitter.

rumore (869) - Rimini, ITALY - JUN 16, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours intense gold with looots of white fluffy foam. Took several attempts to draft it. Aroma is a very nice mix of citrus and floral, scarcely persistent. It becomes more herbaceous over time. Body is medium-dense. Taste is markedly bitter. Final is long and bitter, herbaceous.
