Keg Cittie Of Yorke London 27/05/14. An old fashioned keg bitter. Light gold with a white head and lace. Creamy and malty. Not much going on. Low hopping. Not got the nastiness of for example John Smith’s Smooth but it’s very simple.

Rossbear (18) - Wendover, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2013
Pint in the Lyceum Tavern (The Strand). Pronounced maltyness, restrained bitterness and fairly sweet. Overall not bad for a 'smooth' bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamesie1857 (2150) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2013
Keg at Shirebrook BRSA Club - Amber body, ridiculously thick head that masked all the early aromas. Overly chilled, but came through with some maltiness and caramel bits. Very drinkable, and surprisingly not bad.

AshtonMcCobb (6601) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 22, 2013
On tap @ the Cramond Inn. Pours golden to amber with a decent head. The nose has honey and hay. The taste has honey and cornflakes then citrus. Predominantly malty in body and texture. Medium bodied well balanced with a good texture and finish. Overall nice bitter on the light end.

RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2013
[email protected] and Three Signets, Durham. Golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is yeasty and bitter, and the flavour is bitter with yeasty and roasted qualities. Overall a reasonable but basic bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

imdownthepub (14547) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Keg at The Three Goats Heads, Oxford. Amber with fizzed head. Sweet, malty thin beer with a wet cardboard flavour. Served over cold which delays aroma and flavours coming through. Probably a good thing.

3.3
JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Cask pint at the Chandos, London. Gorgeous appearance, a bright light orange with a thin, filmy head. Nose is soft and dry but with a hint of fruitiness that transforms unexpectedly into a mild tartness in the taste. Earthy and satisfying.

ManVsBeer (10448) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2012
Golden head with a thick creamy white head, although a diluted bitterness for its taste.

TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 15, 2012
Keg at The Cramond Inn. Brown and that. Over chilled. Muted aroma. Some fruity malt flavours eventually and a touch of roasted malt. Textbook.

On tap. Golden, white head. Biscuits, some lemon. Bitter finish. Ordinary bitter.
