Tap at Devonshire Arms, Cambridge .
dark goldne color with small white head. Very weak malty aroma with notes of citrus hops. Watery taste with hint of malt, fruity hops. Disappointment.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed malts and peppery hops meld in this silky Bitter.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam crowns the amber-tinged golden.
-The hop character has green edges.
-Orange-y tea leaves are also shared in the aroma.
-The mouthfeel is smooth and rich, creating an elegant quencher of a body.
-The flavour profile is balanced.

On cask at The Royal Blenheim, Oxford.

Great swift half on a hot afternoon. Could very easily be a session beer. Lively, producing a smooth head, clean flavour, slightly floral and grassy.

AshtonMcCobb (6470) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 4, 2012
On Tap @ the Haymarket Bar. Pours golden with a proportionate head. The nose has grapefruit and hay. The taste is more of the same. The palate is light to medium in structure and texture with a clean finish. Overall, a good easy quaffer!

Cask at the Royal Blenheim, Oxford, England.
Deep golden colour with small white head. Salty watery aroma. Flavour is very mild floral and fruity hoppy. Watery. I dont know whats wrong with this but its not the same nectar rated before. Watery and flavourless. Probably needs another go sometime.

BeerViking (4617) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2010
Golden and bright, with a fine white head. Aroma is crisp and hoppy. Bitter and dry on the palate but with a firm underlying fruity malt. Dry bitter finish. An excellent session bitter, reminiscent of Youngs Ordinary when it was good.
