Cask, Mariners Great Yarmouth. Golden amber appearance with fast fading thin white head. Aroma of biscuit, bread and malts. Taste of biscuit, some light citrus flavours with a slightly bitter aftertaste. It’s okay, drinkable but nothing remarkable.

From many pubs over many years. This is one of the UK’s great cask beers, and it’s good enough that I’ll often choose a pint of it over an un-rated cask beer when I’m in a pub. It stays true to style, with a light sweetness, moderate bitterness, and a gentle mouthfeel, but the combination of the "toast and biscuits" flavor from the Golden Promise malt and the Styrian Golding hops elevate this to a world-class level Bitter. Excellent stuff.
