The Coopers Tavern, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

GarryGood24 Feb 2011 Really nice. Typical best bitter, nicely hopped with a bitter finish with just a tiny hint of toffee at the very end. Nice colour, and balance, no real aroma

The Market Porter, Southwark, Central London

IanAcceptable30 Sep 2007 Gold/copper with thin beige head. Watery bitter. Sometimes I despair of this pub and the condition of some of the beer. Some rose petal fruit, some stingy hop on end. Rose petal fruit is good. Perfumey.
