Golden color. Frothy white head, fairly indistinguishable from any other English bitter but decent enough.

Vladivostok (462) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Slight aroma of newly mown grass allied to a flavour of freshly baked bread. Gently hopped and slightly sweet with a short-medium finish. Refreshing.

Draught. This is another classic bitter that I was not terribly fond of. Too malty a sweet for my taste.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2013
Light gold, hazy, tight creamy white head; no aroma; weak, flowery hop taste; thin; light, dry bitterness; mediocre at best, quite possibly ruined by Poole Quay Wetherspoons inability to serve it in proper condition.

jd543 (428) - SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2013
Golden colour with a good foamy white head, which lasted a decent while. Aroma was slightly hoppy. Flavour was sweet a bit salty and you could definitley taste the hoppiness. Creamy texture. Thatís all I can say about this beer. It was OK but just so average. So little on the palate. I would have had another (perhaps - and oly because there wasnít much else good on) but I canít get excited about anything to do with this beer.

A bit to pale-golden for my tastes. Only had the one pint, perhaps better with more. B

MaltMan88 (10) - Bury, Lancashire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2013
The first chop, Ramsbottom Lancs. Lovely light straw appearance initial aromas of lemon and leading bitter edge. Light mouth feel but carrying a refreshing reintroduction of the citrus from the nose alongside shortbread and dried herbs. Short but refreshing finish

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - OCT 25, 2012
Again a yellow bitter which is very soft and smooth. A bit of hazelnut and slight toasted cereal. Smooth bitter finish. I would have this again.
