Holmen1 (6681) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2017
Fra håndpumpe på The Champion (Wells Street, London): vakker dyprødlig kobber med tett skum som holder følge til siste dråpe. Meget cremet og bløt munnfølelse med balansert og myk bitterhet fra første til siste slurk. En klassisk, velkomponert bitter med stor smaksrikdom og eksepsjonell drikkbarhet. Litt maltsødme mot slutten gir en perfekt avrunding.

thejackpacker (732) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2017 Cask at Ye Olde Chesire Cheese. A very standard bitter. Not bad but nothing spectacular either. Cask at the Lyceum, London. Really wasnt keen on this one at all, quite unpleasant. Weird off bitter sweetness to it. Down from 2.9 to 2.5.

Cask Pint at The Princess Louise, Holborn, London in Sept 2010 - Amber. Good Condition. Fruity; citrus orange. Malty; toasty malts, toffee. Hoppy; some grassy hops. Good fruit/malt/hop balance. Sweet fruity malty throughout. Very drinkable. Very sessionable. (2010-09)

phfyysik (1493) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2017 Tap @ White Horse, London. Pours red with creamy white head. Aroma is malts, yeast, some grass, light oil. Taste is oily, fruity, some yeast, bread, apple, pie, some vanilla. Nice and fresh beer!

2.9
Grumbo (4296) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2017
Cask at the Cittie of Yorke, High Holborn, London. Pours an attractive clear copper colour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, slightly nutty. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Quite light bodied, soft carbonation. A very average bitter, was hoping for better.

3.2
stevoj (5885) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 5, 2016
Draft at the Princess Louise. Clear, light amber with creamy head. Malty aroma and taste, Just a hint of sourness. Nice consistency, but a bit let down. Was hoping for better.

3.2
Antzrhere (181) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2016
On tap at Samuel Smiths two pubs in Blackpool. Pours tan to brown. Taste of oak, malt, caramel and maybe a touch of vanilla. A good mouth feel. While a very typical Yorkshire bitter this is an exceptionally rounded beer with a great balance of bitterness to balance the malt sweetness. Probably one of o Sam Smith’s best

3.2
badhack (571) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Dark amber, cask poured so low carbonation and cool/room temperature. Malty, caramel. Bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel and the finish was a bit astringent which highlighted the hops.

2.9
anders37 (27667) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2016
Cask @ Cittie of Yorke, Holborn WC1. Pours an amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty weak caramel aroma. Fruity malty caramel flavor. Has a fruity malty caramel finish.

3.2
The_Osprey (9723) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2016
August 2016 - Cask HP at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, Fleet St. As ’Samuel Smith Old Brewery Bitter’, 4.0%, from oak cask. Translucent dark orange, still, dense creamy white head leaves thick lacing. Aroma is breadstick, some tart fruits. Body is fairly light, soft carbonation. Taste is bready, does have a light drying oaky dimension. Interesting, with some unique character from the oak. (3.2)
