MrTipple (6457) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2017
Grain and bread malts, dough, straw and hay. Clear, dark gold, medium, creamy, white head. Light bitter. More grain and cereal malts, bread, flat carbonation, medium bodied. Alright Bitter, nothing too spectacular though. Cask at The Station, Port Erin.

Sigmund (7917) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2016
Cask pint at The Shepherd’s Tavern, Mayfair. Copper colour, off-white head. Moderate malty aroma, some fruit. Slightly sweet, fruity (currants) and malty flavour. Decent enough, but the hops are too moderate.

3.2
ianwelby (1525) - SCOTLAND - AUG 23, 2016
Clear amber beer, creamy white head. Light sour fruit aroma. Fruity taste and a touch sour again. Malt and some light bitter hop. A very traditional bitter but perfectly serviceable.

ravidesai (979) - Bombay, INDIA - JUN 22, 2016
On cask @Thomas Rigby’s Liverpool Hazy irange amber pour. almost no head. nose of bred and citrus. full bodied with a lot of malt and a nice hope bite in the finish. At under 4% alcohol this is a great session ale

2.6
Travlr (26091) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Cask at The Bridge. Clear deep golden color, thick cream colored head with good retention. Aroma of light black pepper, but the young lady sitting next to me was wearing a lot of perfume, so who knows? Taste is light straw and white pepper. Watery body.

2.8
gunnar (9696) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2015
Cask at The Albert, Douglas. Pours clear dark golden with a small white head. Aroma of weak grassy hops and caramel. Taste is moderate sweet caramel, weak bitter finish, short lived as well.

2.6
ManVsBeer (10951) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2015
Cask @ Thomas Rigby’s, Liverpool. Golden-orange with a small head. Has a malty nose with light malts in its taste and a medium bitterness. Gentle enough in its texture.

3.4
BlackHaddock (7690) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2015
8th April 2015: my first beer on the Isle of Man. Hand-pulled pint through a huge swan neck in the excellent Trafalgar in Ramsey. Amber and clear with a good, lasting white crown: it looked good on this and subsequent occasions I drank it around the island. The nose is a pleasant blend of hops and light caramel notes, as is the taste. This is a true session ale and flavoursome for such a brew, coming in at only 3.7% ABV: very drinkable and one of the best in it’s class/style.

3.7
Arek (1211) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - FEB 10, 2015
19.12.12: Cask 1 Pint, Liverpool, England, UK.
Brązowe piwo o puszystej pianie. W smaku typowy, klasyczny, dobry bitter o fajnej goryczce.
