3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line:
Mildly toasted bread and caramel meet with slowly building leafy hops and their bitterness in this classic Brown Bitter.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear copper.
-The mouthfeel is slender.
-Drinkability is high.
-This is very clean and perfectly tendered, but it’s a forgettable recipe...
On cask at The Star Inn, Bath.

Cask handpull at The Star Inn, Bath, Somerset (the highlight pub wise of a trip around the good beer guide pubs in Bath). An amber colour beer, with a small off white head. A very malty beer, quite fruity. Slightly bitter finish.

Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 2nd December 2010. Amber with thin light grey head. Grassy hop in-mouth and a hoppy aroma. Touches of biscuity malts then a dry bitter finish. Quite light and thinnish mouthfeel. Refreshing and easy drinking.

Cask conditioned at The Star Inn, Bath. Amber with white head. Light malty bitter, quite easy going with sweetish notes. Not bad as a quaffing bitter.
