leaparsons (10130) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2007
Cask, Fox Inn, Lutterworth. Golden with a small head. Aromas are shredded marmalade with sweet malts and light hopping. Flavours are sweet, stickly marmalade with some buttery malts. Very nice sweet hops with a dry finish.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2007
Orangy amber, small head which quickly goes, not much lacing. Has a rough bitter flavour, understated hops, and a sweet after taste. I found it a bit to cloying for my palate, but overall a decent pint.

Tranquillity (2035) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2007
Cask @ Real Ale Festival, Gallows Bird, Espoo. Light orange colour, small white head. Not much aroma.... nice apple, herb taste. Good, average thickness.

GeoffT (12) - SCOTLAND - JAN 11, 2007
On cask in cloisters, Edinburgh. Excellent light amber session bitter. Perfumy, floral Golding hop aroma. Clean, fairly dry, slight caramilisation and good hop flavour. Finishes with a clean bitterness. Overall one of the best session bitters around.

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2007 At the Charles XII, Heslington. Golden-orange brew with a nice lasting head, little lace. Some caramel in the aroma but more pronounced hop citrus, even more pronounced grassy notes. Taste was much the same, with flowery notes and grass predominate, some caramel malt in the background. Easy drinker, fairly carbonated. Re-rate: Need to bump this one up a couple notches as Ive been drinking it more regularly. Very much on par with the best bitters Ive had so far. More pronounced citrus in the taste than I had first experienced.

Max1972 (10) - ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2007
Frankly, not as good as it used to be. Had it in a number of pubs over the last few months and noted that it doesnt seem to have the depth of taste and character that it once did.

lagomswedish (213) - Ume, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2006
On cask at the Old Coach and Horse, Harbledown near Canterbury. First had a pint of this when I studied up in Darlington. Almost 15 years has past since then but my face lit up when I saw this guest ale. Soft fruit (faint citrus) and a grassy, refeshing hop twang. This is the kind of quality session bitter that I miss so much now Ive moved away from England.

damiano (20) - USA - DEC 19, 2006
This is a wonderful bitter, great session brew but more than that. Its a golden tangerine studded with intricately cut diamonds. Without doubt this can walk the tightrope.

KnutAlbert (6740) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2006
Cask in London. Small head, pale brown beer. Some malt, but dominated by grassy hops. Nice.

larsga (7375) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2008 Thin white head over lightish orange body. Light tea aroma. Light, sweetish delicate tea and citric hops taste with faint, dryish, smoky aftertaste. Nice session beer. (0.5pt on cask. Should rerate.)
