Pretty decent bitter. Light to moderate malt, a touch of sweet caramel, biscuit, slightly fruity mild bitter finish. Good session ale.

Clear amber beer with a thin head. Light, bready smell. Taste is tangy fruit and hops. I think itd be sickly over a session but its nice.

Cask. At Walton hotel - so overpriced. Resinous hoppy nose. Copper with thin top. The awards come from its balance and it remains a beer that others should study precisely because they go overboard on hops. Or arcane flavours.If this was the only beer available I would be happy if bored.

Cask at Bennets. Peppery spice and biscuit maltiness. Very smooth and drinkable. For me this pretty much sets the benchmark for traditional bitters.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Cask at The Garden House, Durham, 3.75/pint. Pours mid-amber with thin white head. Aroma is lightly biscuity, woody and nutty. Opens with slight fruity sweetness before a long, bitter finish on a very smooth palate. Good. Justifiably has a great reputation and a great all-rounder, but there are definitely more exciting beers out there.

On Cask with a sea view at the Old Chain Pier, Trinity, Edinburgh. Looks good in the foreground of a stunning scene. Creamy head. Golden amber. Biscuity aroma. It is indeed a nice Bitter with good old fashioned bitter to malt sweetness ratio. Quaffable, smooth, nutty caramel. Not my favourite style but appreciated. Aye...

Cervesa amb aroma lleuger, en boca predominen els tocs a caramel i galeta molt ben integrats. Cerveza con aroma ligero, en boca predominan los toques a caramelo y galleta muy bien integrados.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Better than the bottle. Golden body with medium head. Nose is hoppy, floral and grassy. Taste caramel, maltier and nutty. Gets more bitter and hoppier in the finish. Enjoyable.

Holmen2 (3284) - NORWAY - MAY 8, 2015
From cask at The Vine Inn, Manchester, with KL and LH 08.05.15. Golden. Uneven and diminishing off-white head and lacing. Slightly fruity aroma of malt and pale caramel. Similar taste. Very moderate bitterness in aftertaste. Good drinkability, though.
