jjsint (2673) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Cask at the Black Horse, Bridgnorth. Golden, a bit of white head. Malty and slightly sulphurous aroma. The taste is much improved from the smell: sweet, almost honeyed, will a bitter-astringent finish. Good for a very basic, no-frills bitter.

Towey1989 (2214) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Cask at The Congress, Longton. A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, honey, some caramel and floral hops, kind of like lemon sweets. Taste is the same of sweet caramel, light lemon, some honey and slight spicy, floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, lemony hop bitterness in the finish. This is quite astringent after a while, quite boring too.

johndoughty (5178) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2015
Bottle. Golden and very clear with a small head. Subtle bitterness with hops very much in the background. An excellent beer that shows that you havent got to have a massive amount of strength to brew a pleasant and drinkable beer like this one.

Ye Olde Bull Ring Tavern, Ludlow. Cask. Clear pale gold beer, decent pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth with fine carbonation. Nice condition. Light malts, softish and with a little creamy sweetness. Light esters are well integrated. Modest citric hops on the back end, Light finish. Its all very smooth and civilised and pretty drinkable!

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Cask at Weavers Kidderminster. Dusty gold pale ale, low aroma with light lemon notes on the tongue. Nothing of any great note taste wise, slightly grainy sherbert finish.

AshtonMcCobb (6055) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2014
On cask at the Boathouse in Shrewsbury. Appearance - golden amber with a decent head. Some haze. Nose - apples predominantly but a touch of caramel in there too. Taste - apples and caramel well merged again. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - good though I prefer my bitters to be more biscuity.
