Cask at Sir John Oldcastle, JDW, London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a fine, white foam head. Pale, biscuity malt nose, light straw. Light to medium sweet flavor, all pale malts, some doughy white bread, white sugar. Light bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish with faint hay bitterness, creamy pale malts, faint lemon. OK. harrisoni (19559) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2012
Cask at Hamilton Hall Spoons. Hazy gold with thin lasting white head. Its about average if slightly below. Syrupy pale malts. Dirty aroma. Some hop towards finish. Touch of bitterness. Ok. Just chriso (7536) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2005
Attractive bronze/brown colour. Mainly malty, a bit of fruit with some tangy hop notes coming through late. Reasonably dry. These malty Autumnal bitters aren’t my favourites, but this was proficiently made, if uninspiring. Cask (handpump) at the Magpie and Crown, Brentford.

Magpie and crown, Brentford, London. Slightly darker bitter, deep amber. Pretty standard flavourwise. Grainy malt, lightly toasty/nutty. Fairly dry.
Cask Conditioned, at the Malt Shovel, Horsham. </br>
Amber, bright and well behaved. Served super fresh in what is Horsham’s number 1 Real Ale pub. 6 pubs and 4-6 casks behind the par (plus all the regular lager suspects). Another good solid bitter from Weltons. The only criticism I might make of this is that it just too similar to the last Welton’s I had. Possibly not as crisp, fresh and bright as the last but certainly all the same flavours.
