jmgreenuk (9543) - Kuala Lumpur, - APR 27, 2012
Cask at the Tontine Hotel, Ironbridge. This reminds me of the beer my Dad used to drink, but better. A classic English bitter that begs to be served on the warm side. It hardly touches the back of my throat! The slightly fruity aftertaste is its signature. Pour me another Landlord! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Towey1989 (2939) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2017
Bottle at Beerdock Leek. Pours a clear amber colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of toasted malts, tea, slight caramel, some orange, a little pine and subtle spicy hops. Taste of caramel, some fruit, some tea, a little toast, subtle orange and slight spicy, woody hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A short, dryish, spicy and woody hop bitterness in the finish. A hoppy bitter but that’s about it. Was expecting more from the aroma. Ok though.
