Cask at Wharf Rat. Pouts hazy copper with almost no head. Tastes like light, delicate malt with some floral notes, light citrus, and a hint of dry, sour grapes. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like light malt, grapes, a little musky and nutty. Garry_Evans (71) - HONG KONG - MAY 31, 2014
On tap at the Beer Bay, Hong Kong. Nice and hoppy but too carbonated. As good as you can get for a bitter in HK

Clear orange/brown with a medium sized white head. A bit low on flavour; nutty, earthy, wooden, light grass, caramel, light bready. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation light/medium sweet and bitter. Nothing fancy, but easy to pour down. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Draft @ Brewhouse Pub. Aroma is quite hoppy, earthy and herbal, nice malt note. Flavour is a but dull in comparison to the aroma, more watery then expected. Prefer the bottle. MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2014
Backlog. On tap @ Green Lion Inn. A solid example of a regular bitter, just not enough to be impressive though.

Deep amber appearance, not much of a head. Aroma is hoppy and spicy. A smoooth taste which has malt and hops in the background. Distinctive Shepherd Neame taste. Pretty good. sschwab (48) - London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Spitfire is a great example of a best bitter. Kentish fruity hops are offset by maltiness, with some floral notes throughout. No need to be snobby - I’m not a fan of some other shepard neame brews, but spitfire is a safe bet which is often underrated. It’s ruined by poor cellaring and pipes in some pubs, and can taste pretty cheesy, but it usually does the job on a cold afternoon. Quite high ABV for a bitter, but this is subtly done.

Cask @ Mabel Tavern, London. Pours golden with a offwhite head. Aroma of malt, light grass. Flavor is malt, caramel, nuts, grass. Medium body, soft carbonation. 190913 elbernays (1702) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 24, 2013
Brown foam head. Flat watery slightly acidic finish. Slight notes of fruit as it goes down - peach maybe. Dry finish. Okay just Pizd (435) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2013
(Cask): Deep amber with a small, creamy tan head. Aroma of malt, floral notes and caramel. Big malty taste with floral, caramel, biscuit and earthy flavours. Not bad at all!
