Cask, Star & Garter, Wigston. Amber with a form off-white head. Aromas are pear and blackberry with biscuit and dusty yeast. Trace banana with cream and mellow lemon. Flavours are caamel and lemon with dry tea and a cloying, nasty sweetness. Quite poor. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2007
A Mes rate:
Cask at The Volunteer. A fairly tedious offering from Robinsons, as most of theirs are if I am honest. Mainly malts and just very mellow all round. A tad on the watery side. Boo. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2007 Cask at Bedford BF ’06. Amber sessioner; not much aroma. Watery, refreshing, little bitterness. Bit dull, really. 24.3.07. Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber-gold with a small white head. No discernable aroma. Malty taste followed by a very thin, watery second half with hardly any bitterness. Rating 1,4,4,3,11: 2.3.

Nice bitter, not annoying and good foam. Pale colour, not so goldy as other bitters. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2006
Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Doughy yeast and floral hop aromas with caramel. Very pleasant and slightly unusual fruity tea (like a cold darjeeling or ceylon) flavours. Gentle bitter finish to balance the fruity sweetness. Tasty.

Medway Beer Festival. A tired session bitter offering up a dry appleness, but nothing genuinely flavoursome or gulpable. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 25, 2005

Cask at Rose & Crown, Mundy Bois. Copper colour. Lasting white head with nice bitter hops. Bit watery in mouth with hoppy dry finish. Slightly yeasty. Hbie (133) - Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2005
Cask. In good condition, light brown with white head. A good session beer quite full bodied for its strength, a fair amount of flavour a few more hops would not go amiss. I prefer this to the Best Bitter which I find too sweet.
