Backlog. Cask at Green Lion Inn. A stable example of the style, nothing that lifts your eyebrows though.

Tried at a plastic pub attached to a premier inn. Surprisingly bad beer, Overly carbonated. Watery and almost tasteless.

SlackerMads (3283) - DENMARK - MAR 17, 2014
Clear light brown with a small white head. Aroma is medium malty (dark toasted bread, straw) and medium hoppy (grass, wooden, earthy, nutty). Medium sweet and bitter, starts off soft and sweet but finishes light dry. Not bad.

Desverger (10514) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2014
[email protected] Bull, Streatham (9/3/2014) - pours amber with medium white head. Aroma and taste is caramel malty, toffee, nutty, not as good as I remembered from years back but still decent enough for a easy to find bitter.

AshtonMcCobb (6397) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 10, 2014
On cask at the Guildford Arms. Appearance -golden to amber with a nice head. Nose - apples and biscuits. Taste - creamy toffee with the sour apples finishing it off. Palate - nice integration of fruit and malt favours. Medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - a well balanced bitter. Greater than the sum of its parts.
