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.
Draft. Nitro. Amber beer with a cream nitro head. Light floral aroma. Light malt and light floral flavor. Medium bodied. Refreshing. Light floral notes linger with light malt. Rune (12975) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2017
Half-pint, on keg at the Samuel Smith pub Angel Inn. Nitro creamy, white head leaving spotty lacing behind. Clear amber coloured body. Subdued doughy aroma. Modest taste profile of grainy fruits. Distant bittersweet endnotes. Foamy in the mouth. Rather below par for a classic bitter. (Leeds 05.07.2017). bartlebier (4027) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2017
Keg at Nellies, White Horse Inn Beverley, Brexit ale Tour April 2017. - Mild and soft bitter in all its aspects, offering pleasant diluted lemon jelly, some orchard fruit pear drops on a thinly spread cereal&biscuit base. A halfpint down in a sweet nothing, it needs the surrounding culture and cachet of a great pub to come alive... tmdaines (89) - Stretford, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2017
Aroma is pretty awful. Nice and smooth on the palate. Decent bitter taste. Would drink again but in no rush too. Scopey (14992) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2017
Keg at Ye Olde Swiss Cottage. It pours clear amber with a medium off-white head. The aroma is soft, bready, cereal, cracker, rivita and a touch of sweetness. The taste is pretty weak actually... sort of has this generic malty vibe, bread, cereal, muted toffee, apple skin and some grass maybe. Finish is sweetish, yet dry. Light body and fine, foamy carbonation. Utterly forgettable stuff.

Tap - pours deep gold with a thin white head. Aroma is is cereal malt and caramel. Taste is biscuit and cereal malt. Cunningham (8077) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2016
Clear caramel golden color with a fine creamy white head. Good lacing. Decent intensity in the aroma. Medium (-) body and a soft carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Caramel malty, mild fruity and mild bready flavor. Decent and easy to drink. I am not a big fan of these bitter ale on handpull. This one proved me wrong.Vignale (3858) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2016

Cask on a pub somewhere in Soho, London. A brewery the I usually have been impressed by but this is a dull watery bitter. The body lacks structure and maltyness. Flowery and earthy hops medium bitterness. Ok. DwarfeD (3540) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2016
Draught at The Duke of Argyll, London. Somewhat hazy dark orange with a medium white soapy head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Subtle bitter and sweet tones. Caramel, malts, grain and biscuit. Refreshing.
