On cask at bridge bar Heathrow T1, badged as "bridge ale".Fairground (29) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2013
This seems like most likely candidate copper-brown with low head and strong caramel/butterscotch aroma. Low condition, bit tired, medium body, malt and caramel, little bitterness. Competent but dull dull dull.
caramel, roasty aroma, amber, orange, appearance ...taste is smokey,woody, caramel, toast, overall a nice taste, with a nice bitter after taste Holmen1 (5888) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2013
Fra cask på Charlies Bar, nov-12: Minner fra mitt år i London strømmer på - fargen, lukten, smaken og engelsk pubstemning. Perfekt temperert. Ruddles på flaske og fra håndpumpe gjorde store inngrep i min studentlommebok, og ikke uten grunn - dette er en meget god session beer. Bring it on!

Pours a copper brown complexion, a very creamy head, extremely smooth and very easy to drink. ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Amber and clear. Small head and a weak body. A little smokey with some apple cider vinegar. Very watery mouthfeel. Tried with the parents in London in 2012. JorgeLee (2117) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2012
Cask at the Kings Head W2. Copper coloured bitter with a robust malt base and earthy hop flavour. Not quite as strong tasting as it used to be, the influence of Greene King no doubt. joergen (28148) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2012
Cask at Charlies Bar.
Clear orange coloured with a medium sized white head.
Fruity aroma of caramel, hops and mint.
Fruity flavour of caramel, bread, grass and hops.
Hoppy finish. tombyars (1702) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 29, 2012
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in May 1994. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear garnet red in colour with a thick shaving foamy white head. Strong sweet aroma of glycerine fruit and warm yeasty dough. Smooth creamy texture in the mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts deliver a robust biscuity malt base laden with sweet apple and sultanas. Strong dusty hop resins pack a punch with rich earthy tones to the long bitter aftertaste. Finish is malty and very vinous with dry prunes full in the mouth. A superb bitter when brewed in Oakham and sadly missed.
