Eructoblaster (4172) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2012
On tap at Duke of Argyll (London, UK). Pours a nice amber body with a generous off-white creamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and herbal hints. Hoppy taste carries oaky notes and ends with a good bitter/grainy finish. Enjoyable.

TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 15, 2012
Cask at The Cramond Inn. Brown Amber with a White head. Sweet malty flavour. Fruity leading to a bitter finish. Well balanced, simple and effective.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Cask at Angel, New Oxford Street. Nice healthy amber pour, thick and well carbonated. Nose is fairly unassuming but appealing in its combination of dry notes and substantial malts. Mouthfeel a bit thinner than needed but the flavors are nicely satisfying, with bright herbal notes giving things a nice liveliness.

MrTipple (4782) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2014
Aroma: banana?, straw, light grain malts. Appearance: slightly hazy amber, small, creamy white head. Taste: light sweet and bitter. Palate: light body, citrus fruits, light acid, some lacto, average-long duration. Overall: quite a nice Bitter, impressive complexity given the low ABV! Pint at the Windsor Castle, Westminster.

Very cheap Sam Smiths pubs in the UK under £2 for a pint looks perfect in the glass lovely head and nice rings down the glass as you drink it served wat to cold seems nto be the same at all smiths pubs donít know why a dependable session ale if a trifle bland.

TedE (1299) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2015
Hand pull at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese. Toasty malt nose. Bronze beer with thin solid white head. Thin but creamy texture. Zero carbonation. Aftertaste is more toasty malt plus late toffee. Delicious.

Cask at Sam Smiths The Cock Tavern, London. Pours an amber colour with a creamy white head. Aroma is subtle with a light maltiness. Light to medium body, mild carbonation. Sweet caramel ice cream, cakey. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tom10101 (6030) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
Handpumped @ Ye Olde Cheschire Cheese (Greater London). Slightly hazy amber with a medium mostly lasting beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of caramel, mineral presence and fruity notes, but thereís a little something off that I canít recognize. Taste is also of caramel, fruity notes and mineral presence with a very light bitterness along with, again, something off that I canít recognize. Itís really subtle, but it doesnít take much to hinder low abv beer like a Bitter. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Easily drinkable and tasty, but far from the best Bitter because thereís a little something off and itís also a tad bland.

victorsampson96 (91) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Clear amber beer, low carbonation, with a small, foamy, off-white head. Refreshingly light-medium bodied. Simple, yet pleasant caramel malts, with a touch of apple and herbs, and a mild, citrus hop. Simple, but well balanced, and very drinkable.

3.2
Ferris (15001) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
Cask - Malty caramel with a light nutty bitterness. Clear copper with a creamy white head. Light toffee and nuts, slight sourness.
