Cask (handpump) at Sir Christopher Hatton, Holborn on 4 September 2012. More amber than pale in appearance. Loose off-white head. Slightly clammy, soft malt on the nose. Quite earthy on the palate. A touch buttery in aroma and flavour. I was expecting something a bit zesty and golden but it had as much of a traditional bitter feel. Acceptable, but both St Austell and Nicholson’s can do better than this. Maybe not in the greatest nick so flagged for re-rate.

Cask at Philharmonic. Pours a clear copper with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of bread and grains with just a hint of biscuit underlying. Flavor has lots of straw and grains with a hint of flora on the finish.

Myonlyvice (341) - DENMARK - NOV 5, 2017
From tap at a Nicholsons pub, London. Clear light amber with a very small white head. Aroma is a mix of malty notes with caramel dominating, some floral notes and a hint of wood. Slightly bitter but balanced with sourness and malty sweetness.

Creamy and served a bit warm like as is typical in England but worth that for the traditional style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hand-pulled in the Rose St Brewery, Edinburgh. Pours golden-amber with a thin but lasting head. Tastes very mild, easy to drink, yet aromatic enough. Good Pale.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2017 Smooth bitterswest. Amber appearance. Fruit and caramel hints. No real bite on palate but fair strengh. Not much flavour I’m afraid. Hops seem slight.
