maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, - JUL 11, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Marquis London 05/07/13. An amber coloured beer. Not good. Vinegary acidity. Fruits. Reasonable enough body but the flavours are all wrong. This pub always has a Portobello or two on so even if this is the pubs fault the beer takes a hit for being here.

BeardedAvenger (359) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Tap, Queens Head, Weybridge. Vinegar aroma, which also comes through in to taste? Off? Otherwise basic bland bitter.

Idiosynkrasie (6701) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear, pale amber colour with average, thick, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Floral, minimally fruity, hoppy aroma, a cautious touch of peach. Taste is moderately bitter, slightly husky, floral hoppy overtones, cautious hints of peach.

planky84 (2891) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Cask at the Hare and Billet, Blackheath. Amber pour with a white head. Honey, vanilla and apricot jam aroma. Crisp, sweet fruit action on the palate. Quaffable stuff.

Cimbasso (808) - - MAR 16, 2016
On draught at the John Baird, Muswell Hill. Aroma of malt and the colour is a dark copper with a thin white head. Taste is of toffee and berry fruit. Medium better finish, but very slightly sour finish in this instance. Quite drinkable, nonetheless.

thellgren (860) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2015
pint draught (cask) @ Fountains Abbey, Paddington, London. Amber colour, still, no head, malts and hops. Sounds like typical bitter, this is, however, a bit on the APA side. Since it was poured from cask, the taste is more smooth and fruity than in bottle beers. Quite OK.

FatPhil (14511) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 7, 2015
Cask (Dobblers, Cambridge)
Fruity hoppy aroma and taste. Sweet smooth palate. Lots of fruity esters, though a bit sweet. All in all a very pleasant English bitter. Went down nice and quickly as I did my best to escape from the pub swiftly...
