A really nice bitter. I have some very happy memories of this stuff.
My personal experience is that the bottles taste a lot better than cask.
Great shame that it’s been made virtually extinct by Theakston’s Cool Cask which is a very average ale. I can’t find the bottles on anymore anymore :( and only know one pub with it on tap.
I guess it’s not so popular because of it’s low alcohol content. Sometimes it’s good just to have a great tasting beer. It doesn’t have to always be about getting drunk quick. Too often breweries are replacing great light beers with super strength crap.

One of the greatest ales there are. It’s certainly one of my favorites if not #1. An excellent session beer when you can find it well kept. Sigmund (7537) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 An excellent real ale cask bitter. I wonder if you guys who don’t like it really like English bitters at all?? Charlieboy (62) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2009

[Cask conditioned] Amber coloured. Fruity aroma. Very nice flavour. Hoppy, herbal. spicy and bitter. Full bodied. I was very surprised to read all the bad ratings of this great brew. Very underrated. dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2003
A real nice pint with late EKG hop addition in the end. Just lovely hop persona and balance is good too. Could have some cascade hops. Sissio (1650) - Orsenigo, ITALY - APR 12, 2014
On tap at Birratrovo in Como.
Very drinkable beer. Nice bitter.
Some malts, hops hrothgar950 (141) - Mabelvale, Arkansas, USA - JUN 21, 2012
On cask at brewery visitor center. Clean aroma. Golden yellow with white head. Light fruity flavor with good expression of hops, and a slight malty background. Dry finish. Itstasty (99) - 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....
