thewolf (12594) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2008
Cask @ Cockney’s, Aarhus.
[my 100th Bitter - my 7th style to reach a century]
Pours a super, deep red with a medium, creamy, white head. Great duration and fine lacing. Soft aroma, some butterscotch, light hoppiness, some malts and grassy and piney notes. Fine, low carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour starts off pleasantly fruity, some strawberries, then light malty before a mild, hoppy, slightly dry finish. Okay.

Desverger (11438) - 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.

shrubber85 (11402) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Nutty toffee malt and hay aroma. Chestnut brown with minimal head. Moderately sweet nutty toffee malt and mildly bitter herbal hay flavor. Good body. Nice, solid bitter.

allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Cask at the haymarket. Pours clear amber, thick white head. Aromas are light vinegar, toffee. Taste has some yeasty funk. Maybe not well kept, but I can honestly say I preferred this in the bottle.

leaparsons (10546) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2005 Cask, New Road Inn, Leicester. Bronze with a dense cream head. Aromas are light toffee malts with gentle fruitiness and some nuttiness. Flavours are light, bitter, dry hops. Not very malty. Has some pepper sensation, along with metal, on the finish. Very easy to drink in a not very complex sense.
