IanAcceptable19 Jun 2009 Tighter sparkler than normal, toffeeish, lacks normal aroma. Still got slight sting on finish. Too creamy in mouth for me. It's a good malty standard bitter with good hops on finish, but too tight on sparkler and too cold.
IanExceptional20 Mar 2007 Fresh cask just came on. Outstanding bitter. The malt/hop finish is awesome. Yeast, malt and hop balanced aroma. Great condition in mouth. And then this wonderful finish. Awesome.

IanGood02 Mar 2005 Great supping beer with interesting malty tones
IanExcellent07 Oct 2004 Cains is a staple of Liverpool. But they don't exploit their position or reputation. This is a fantastic session bitter, with good hops, malt and something else you can't put your finger on. Very drinkable. I should know I've drunk enough of it

The Globe, Liverpool, Merseyside

MickGood05 Jan 2011 one of those beers which is really nice but with no outstanding features, average aroma some malt, a little hop no real finish but still a damn good pint, a good session beer.
IanGood21 Mar 2007 Very drinkable bitter bitter.

Paul BExcellent29 Nov 2008 A smooth, easy drink, disappeared quickly - thirsty after train trip from Liverpool. Looks like it will be malty but the flavour is quite subtle. One is rarely enough!

The Churchill Tavern, Ramsgate, Kent

BlairGood05 Sep 2008 Really rich fruity bitter. I was quite impressed, but for some reason it got a little too much by the end of the pint.

IanGood22 Mar 2007 Very nice half a bitter. Very drinkable, good malts and then very nice dryness on finish.

Great British Beer Festival 2006, Earl's Court, Central London

IanGood05 Aug 2006 Deep chestnut, lasting cream head. Familiar malt/yeast aroma. Choc malts. Soft and creamy in mouth from the use of a tight sparkler on the brewery stand. Just the thought of this beer makes me want to have one now.

IanExcellent18 Jan 2006 Yeasty easy drinking session bitter. Good hops on end and tingly bite.
