The smell and look of this beer is about the only thing going for it. Too fruity for for me.

dark, rich and warming. seems a lot thicker than the bottled counterpart, but where it lacks in ABV it makes up for in smoothness and subtler flavour.

Cask @ Yates, Luton
Kolor ciemnomiedziany, przejrzysty. Piana kremowa, gęsta i zawiesista. Doskonale krążkuje na szkle i długo się utrzymuje na powierzchni. W aromacie klasyka stylu: karmel, ciemny chleb, lekkie toffi. W smaku do bólu słodowe z karmelem, biszkoptami i chlebem. Goryczka dość długa, nieprzyjemny posmak w ustach. Umiarkowana tekstura. Słabe, bardzo słabe, jeden z najgorszych Bitterów jakie piłem z pompy :/

4.5% alk. Točena piva probana u Samoboru. Iako nije posebno jaka ima pun okus, fino se osjeća njezina gustoća. Jako dobra piva. Lijep primjerak tipične engleske pive.

Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Sept 2009 - Very Dark Brown/Ruby in colour. Malty; roast malts, caramel. Mildly fruity. Sweetish roast malty fruity leading to some bitterness from the roast malts. Drinkable but rather bland. (2009-09)

Mishnok (379) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2016
From cask. Ruby red with little head. Good rounded bitter with a bit of fruity sweetness and spice. Some breads malts. Easy drinking ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a very tasty bitter. Has a very nice spicey character to it. Not too heavy. Not too hoppy. This is one you could drink all night
