Chiswick (159) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2011
has golden/amber coloured liquid and pours a minimal slightly foamy head. looks balanced but not particularly convincing. has a hoppy aroma with malt and wood. taste manages to bring the bitterness out surprisingly well while keeping the mild sweetness intact. it has a surprisingly strong palate considering the %. a light/medium body with a clear oily texture. carbonation is at first a bit aggressive but cuts down towards the end. have to say that i absolutely love the cask version, and this bottled version isnt that bad either. there isnt nearly as much fruit and full bitterness and hoppyness in the bottled version, but it manages to have it own inner balance while respecting the cask version.

500 ml bottle. Deep golden color, frothy white head. Dry aroma with some sawdust. Smooth hoppy flavor, fairly oily mouthfeel. Medium body, medium carbonation. Plenty of flavor for the ABV, nice.

EdKing (2526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2011
Bottle in Groucho Club, Soho. Pours copper with medium foamy head. Aroma dominated by fruity English hops, but also bit of cut hay, citrous and caramel malt. Taste is smoother and for me a little easier to drink than cask, because the fruit is less overpowering, but at the same time less distinctive. Very nicely balanced though.

Bottle Light amber color, large fluffy white head, good lacing. Aroma of summer fruit and caramel. Taste is bitter throughout with a dry finish. Not bad.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Served in a tulip. Pours a dark golden color with a good white head and a cap filled with a bunch of large bubbles. The nose brings forward a slight malt presence as well as a bit of toffee and light diacetyl, though not at all to an unpleasant degree. The taste is pretty good with some mild fruit and caramel in addition to a nice bready character. Mild butter/toffee in the background. Feel is pretty good. Nice body and carbonation. All in all, at 4.1% this is a nice session beer I wouldnt mind sessioning again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-04-2011

Kavu (4601) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 17, 2011
Pours clear brown with a low head. Aroma is mostly fruits, flavor is bitter malts, fruits and some hops. Perhaps a bit boring, but very nice.

The best bitter I have drunk so far. Beautifully coloured with a white head. The richest combination of hops yeast and malts in a delicious balance. good mouthfeel.

BarossaLuke (552) - AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2011
Another classic English beer. This has all the characteristics that I love in a good English ale, maltiness and good hop aroma too. A really nice mouthfeel, a little chewy from the malt profile, but not sweet as the hops really hold it all together. Great beer!

davidm (2079) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 7, 2011
Great beer. Aromas of grass and caramel. Taste has a sweet start, with long-lasting bitterness to finish. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Leighton (20531) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear amber pour, effervescent, with a foamy white head. Crisp malts on the nose, some sugar and fruits, bit of earthy hops. Nice flavor, not too sweet, with pleasant biscuits, straw and earthy bitterness. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Crisp finish, some nice hop bite, touches of toffee and more lightly baked bread. Very nice beer.
