Cask at The Black Swan, Leek. A clear amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, bready malts, some nuts, slight fruit and subtle earthy hops. Taste of caramel, bready malts, slight fruit, a hint of diacetyl and subtle earthy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, slightly grassy, malty bitterness in the finish. In terms of a standard, low ABV bitter, it’s not bad. Nasty finish though. ozzatoadisback (225) - ITALY - MAR 23, 2017
Light copper, average white head, pretty solid and leaving very nice lacing. Weak but clean aroma of light caramel, slight citrus, maybe floral hops. Taste follows the aroma with a nice and pretty refreshing citric presence that is definitely more vivid than in most bitters. Overall in very good bittersweet balance with the slightest bitter edge in the finish. Light bodied with classical delicate carbonation. Very easy and quite refreshing, not remarkable but pretty enjoyable.
nocturnale (12) - Prudhoe, Northumberland, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2016
Cask at White Swan, Ovingham. Very little aroma, small notes of soap and citrus. Solid bronze colour with dense white head. Taste is soapy and slightly acidic, very little hop character. Bloody horrible, didn’t even finish the pint. Itstasty (117) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2016
Cask. Superb delivery at the Cover Bridge inn East Witton Yorkshire. Bronze with a solid off white head. Floral on the nose without being sickly. Medium mouthfeel, classic English (Yorkshire) bitter. Nice balance of fruitiness and hops with just the right amount of bitterness. Not over complex and great for slaking.... rdb84 (643) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2016
Draft. Dark gold almost amber, small head. A: slightly sour, malts, light lemon. T: follows aroma, low carbonation, bitter finish with note of apple sourness. Vladivostok (491) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2016
A little more flavoursome than I remember it from either Carlisle or Tadcaster. Little aroma but a pleasant taste of toffee and with adequate bitterness. Not a classic but more likeable than many well-established bitters. Stuu666 (15292) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 21, 2016
