digitalviking (99) - - MAY 12, 2016
Fresh round malt aroma, with a bit more bitter hop bite than some of the others I have tried in this style. Quite nice.

Towey1989 (2710) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2016
Cask at The Mitre, Manchester. A clear amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, some toasted malts, slight biscuit and subtle earthy hops. Taste of toasted malts, some biscuit, slight caramel, a little yeast and subtle earthy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, toasted malt bitterness in the finish. A basic, safe bitter. Nothing wrong with it, just better beers out there.

2.8
minutemat (5413) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2016
Cask @ The Three Fishes, Shrewsbury. Pours clear amber. Aroma is light, bready. Taste is perfectly fine, slightly bready, creamy. Inoffensive cask ale that doesn’t quite hit the high notes by modern standards.

2.5
mabuzzer (800) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2016
Cask in Blur Pig, Grantham. Golden, hazy with a thin white head. Slightly off aroma, taste is pleasant, fairly standard bitter, but nothing special. Might be past its best? One to try again...

4.7
Nick_GP (2) - - DEC 28, 2015 does not count
One of the truly great draft bitters. Perfect balance of hops and malt. Creamy.
