3.1
Kavu (5249) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 22, 2013
1/2 pint from cask @ The Falcon. Pours clear amber with a low creamy head. Aroma is malts with some fruits. Flavor is malts and fruits with a hoppy finish. Decent bitter.

2.9
thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2007
On tap at Horse and Groom, Great Portlland Street. Reddish amber with a thick creamy, slightly yellowish head. Faint fudge aroma. Good bitterness, some caramel and milk. Smooth. Not over-exciting.

2.8
Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2003
[From the wood!] Refreshing. Slightly sour and thin. Faint notes of oak. Not great, but interesting.

2.8
Miksu (5052) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2006
Cask at Cittie of York, London. Copper-amber color with creamy head unusual for a cask ale. Ultra smooth and very drinkable. Little fruit and malt in the aroma. In fact, the aroma was so light that I had difficulties in sensing it. Light malt, fruit and hop flavor. Finishes with light bitterness, aromatic malt, vanilla and woodyness. Not unpleasant, but has disappointingly light aromas and flavors.

3.4
RichardGretton (4862) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2003
Nitrogen keg bitter appearance, with a nutty/toffee aroma. The flavour is dry and bitterishly hopped with watery undertones and a slightly acidic quality. Slightly better than your average bitter overall.

3.1
Bullit (4803) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Cask @ The Crown, London. Amber colour, beige dense head. Aroma is malty, bit of caramel. Flavour: toasted malts, vegetable hops. Sweet and bitter finish.

2.9
sfhodense (4788) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2012
Pours amber with a dense white head. Aroma is malt, light flower and grass. Flavour is malt, flower, grass and earthy notes.

4.3
sic1314 (4773) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2012
Completely traditional bitter, easily one of my favourite beers. Classic of the style, but very old fashioned and understandable why some people might not like it. Incredible value for it’s cheap price.

3.6
Martinus (4737) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2015
Red brown colour, firm off-white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, light hops, sour hint. Malty flavour, light hops, quite sweet. Sweet malty finish, light nutty.
(from draught -cask- @ Princess Louise, RBESG 2014, London)

2.8
Iznogud (4692) - CROATIA - DEC 10, 2017
Cask at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, London. Pours cloudy orange with small white head. Matly, sweetish, some citrus notes, also quite bland and some unpleasant notes, some butter. Light bodied.
