Keg at the Tivoli, Morecambe. Pours clear good with a thin white head. Aromas of caramel, biscuit. Taste is light sweet, biscuit. Dry finish. Solid.

Cask at princess Louise, holborn. Took 10+ minutes to pour. Very unsettled with a really sturdy creamy head that you have to chew through. Aroma is wet newspaper, weak hops and barley. cloying texture with a medium dry finish. Hops and wet paper. Poor.

Cask at the princess Louise in holburn. Golden clear coloured pour with a cascading creamy head. Aroma is nutty base malts, some raisin. Flavour is composed of nutty malts with a little caramel, raisin and dried fruits, tangy fruit in the finish. Palate is creamy with moderate carbonation, very easy going. Thick lace on the glass. I enjoyed this, classic bitter.

Cask at the Kings Arms, York, UK. pours copper with white head. Malty, caramel, light hoppy. Bit bland.

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2014
Poured clear amber with an off white head. Aroma of bitter hops and soft malt. Light body, flavour is overly bitter, not much fruit apparently.

The_Osprey (8010) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Keg at Fitzroy Tavern. Pale orange, hazy, sparkling, small dense foamy white head, full thick lacing. No discernable aroma. Body is light, pretty smooth, medium carbonation. Taste is soda water, twiggy, bready maltiness, soft bitterness. Very watery and not suited to keg. Marginally better than their standard lagers.

Cittie Of Yorke. Keg. Almost clear gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and crisp. Light malts. Mellow bitter hops, touch of ripe fruits but mostly just mild bitterness. Light finish. If you were blindfold you would likely think this a brown bitter.
