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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Railway, Putney as ’Acorn Barnsley Bitter’. Clear orange, still, thin white layer of foam atop, leaves light lacing. Aroma has some caramelised sugars, some dog, rubber, maybe a little sulphur. Body is smooth, rounded, low carbonation. Taste is biscuity, straw, a little sulphur, squash ball (yes, I suck these on a regular basis so I can make this comparison), soft bitterness. Middling bitter. Pretty much the epitome of ’twiggy bitter’. Drinkable with just enough nuance to keep things interesting.
