Cask. Looks copper, with a one finger white head. It took a long time to settle. Aromas of bitter hops, toffee and caramel. Taste- quite thin-bodied, lots of bitterness, a fair amount of caramel going on.Solid bitter. gegwilson (3676) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Cask in the Anchor Inn, Guisborough. Amber with a creamy white head. Served over cold, so hard to get too much flavour. Fairly fruity. Some biscuit notes on the finish. There’s a little sweetness too. Below par. s_hartshorne (2767) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2014

Cask at the Windsor Castle, Wesminster, 31/10/13.
Clear copper golden with a moderate light beige covering, good lacing ensues.
Nose is thin - light fruit notes, hint of toffee, grain.
Taste comprises toffee, light malt bill, touch of darker fruit, bread dough.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitter notes in the finish.
So so bitter, not unpleasant, just lacks any depth - done on the cheap which is probably why it is relatively speaking!

Mid to dark brown. A bit cloudy. Taste is malty and astringent. Slightly musty. An old-fashioned English bitter. Good, not great. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 Had at the brewery tap Angel and White Horse (brewery tap in Tadcaster). From their own-made wooden barrel. The aroma and flavors are essential beer, beer in its prototype, worty and luscious, clean, woody, and sexy. Why and how its ratings so low I do not understand!
Update: had it in Durham. The beer is just as fab but not as fresh as the brewery. So do yourself a favor and drink this from the font--it’s truly an amazing experience sitting out there with the horses and all.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2014 #3 - A chest-nutty, and slightly fruity bitter. It is very refreshing, perfect bitter.
