Cask handpull at Ye Cracke, Liverpool. Golden with thin white head. Oaky/hoppy aroma, nice warm citrus flavours in mouth before hops kick in. Some yeast, especially on aroma. Not convinced in best condition. Maybe a little tired fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2005

Nut brown, small white head. Honey sweetish flowery aroma. Sourish bitter, simple palate. I suppose sourness is intended. Basic session bitter.

, Helsinki) Darkish golden / amber color with a small, firm head. Sweetish, aromatic-hoppy, toffeeish nose. Sweetish-malty, sourish flavor with smooth hops and vegetable hints. Not very clean. Light to medium-bodied, slightly watery and thin palatewith quite low carbonation. Overall a nice aroma, but unclean flavor and quite watery.
I thought this was a pretty decent best bitter., but tasted very similar to the much weaker Bank Top Brydge bitter sampled at the same time. Golden colour, with a more malty character than expected and a touch of sulphur in the aroma. Fruity flavour, with citric, grassy hops putting in a late appearance.
