UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Cask at The Freemason’s Arms (Covent Garden - London).kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2006
Light and much vanishing head. Red limpid color, clearly and stationary. Flowery and woody scent; pleasant notes of toasted malt and ash. Dry, smooth and arid taste. Little alcoholic but a lot watery on the end.
Cask (Cock & Woolpack, EC3): Darker golden in clour with a lasting beige head. Nice earty hops, very easy drinking. A chugging bitter.

Really nice, cloudy foam, and great semi dark colour, dar amber. A little bitter, but with great flavour./ It was on Cask. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2005
Cask (handpump) at the Willow Walk (JDW), Victoria. Hmm. I assumed this was just a rebranding of best Bitter rather than a JDW special, but it seems I was wrong. Light copper colour. Earthy, dusty hops and dry malt. Very English and very Shepherd Neame.

Dec 05 Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Stale cheesy hop aroma. Other than that some classic english malt flavours but just not that great. 2.6
Cask, Moon Under the Water, Boston. hazy red/copper in colour. Aromas are berry fruit with sweet malts, earthy hops with sulphur and spices. Flavours are biscuit malts with fruit, earthy and dry with spices. Has a good finish that is very moreish. A good example of the style. imdownthepub (14547) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2005
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Copper coloured with slight head. Sweetish darkly roasted malts dominate with a slight resinous woodiness to the palate and a vague smoky burnt note. A restrained tea like hop on the finish, with a bittering end. Overall a little thin.
