From many pubs over many years. This is one of the UKs great cask beers, and its good enough that Ill often choose a pint of it over an un-rated cask beer when Im 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.
