EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2008
Draught. I wish it was 1985 when Everton was a decent team and Landlord was probably the best pint I’ve ever tasted. Sadly, its popularity meant they had to expand and the beer suffered as a consequence. Still a decent drop when on form. Dark amber with large white head (when served properly, i.e. in the North). Very floral hop aroma, Styrian Goldings I’ve been told. Floral and fruity on the tongue with a pleasant dry finish. Full-bodied for its ABV. Still superb when well-kept. Absolutely horrible otherwise.

Nice off blonde pint, little carbonation, quite viscous drink with good bitter taste, hoppy finish. Nice.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 While I think this is a very nice pint, it tastes good and has plenty of flavour, it isnt stand out as being amazing amazing amazing but its good.

MiP (15454) - Snderborg, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2008
Cask. Weak grainy aroma. Good creamy flavour and mouthfeel. Almost clear copper colour. The flavour has a distinct bitterness, not rough. Mild fruitiness. Good standard bitter.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Another cask that I was able to have while I was in London. Pours a clear gold/amber with a white head. Malty aroma. A little sweet, nice malt flavor with just a little bit of bitterness. Not too shabby.

Cask (GBBF 2008) - Golden in colour. Malty aroma with a light malt and hop balance. Clean tasting,malty and hoppy. Not bad and well made.

bman1986 (173) - Broadstairs, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2008
Cask. Golden amber coloured ale. Rich malty, creamy flavour with lovely hop background. Quite sweet with a little caramel thrown in there as well. One of the best bitters around.

Pyobon (1378) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2008
Draught. Hazy yellow amber with little head. Aroma of malt, flowery hops and fruit. Light to medium body, very little carbonation. The flavour is a beautiful balance of malt, hoppy bitterness and fruit (passion fruit?). Does beer get better than this?

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2016 [1st rating, cask at the Spade Oak, Bourne End. RB score 6/3/5/2/10 (2.6] Fairly pale for a traditional bitter, with a moderate lasting white head. Intensely, almost unpleasantly bitter on the first taste; this does mellow with time to reveal dusty straw and citrus hops. Very clean and crisp-tasting for a bitter, but a little too bitter for my palatte Im afraid. I can see why people like this, but for me theres some much nicer examples of the genre around - Goffs White Knight, Adnams East Green Carbon Neutral and Hidden Pint spring to mind. [2nd rating, cask at the Saracens Head, Beaconsfield. RB score 5/3/6/3/11 (2.8)]. Score entered is an average of all rates.
