4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask at CBC, London. Pours clear russet with a modest, white foam head. Quite a lovely aroma of lightly toasted malts, caramel and leaves. Light to medium sweet flavor, veery nive toasted caramel, toasty bread, mild leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Beautiful carbonation. Sweet, lightly bitter finish, more toasted caramel and modest bread, subtle fruits, toast. This is one of the best, most well balanced bitters I’ve ever had.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2012 Deep brown color with a small off-white head. The nose is pretty neutral, some caramel, light sweet notes, some leather. The taste is suprisingly robust, plenty of sweet toffee notes, some wood, the finish is medium dry. The body’s medium, the carbonation light. Overall, an above-average bitter. Pleasingly ramped-up classic bitter flavors. Good for the style.
