Traditional pale ale meets American hops. In concept, a perfect match. In practice, not far off. Lovely soapy light body from the cask with gently fruity notes. Good for a summer session.

4.5%ABV. Nose is beery and sweet.  Slight malt dreg funk. Mouthfeel is light and lager like.  Palate has ton of pale malt.  Slight phenolic flavor. Good bitter hops. Mild. Brief. Finish is clean and beery.

adasko (1595) - Poznan, POLAND - MAR 25, 2016
Fruity, estery and malty aroma. Very classical. Clear amber color. Poor head for a beer from cask but still has a super lacing. In taste it’s light, plane, soft and not aggressive. Straight classic English pale ale.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Cask at Congress, Longton. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweet citrus hop, some spice, caramel touch. Decent bitter. Not a golden ale.

GenkiGonzo (959) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 11, 2015
Draught at the Linen Weaver. A really bright, fruity aroma. Citrus hop with a slightly sweet malt character. Well-rounded but a bit too sweet by the end.

An excellent example of what a British Bitter should be - woody & floral hops finished off with a good amount of bitterness. Rated by BrewTom

Malty aroma. Appearance okay. Taste spicy caramel with fruity tones. Nice hint of vanilla at end. Bitterness is good on palate with out being too much. Better than bottle or can.

On tap. Pours clear amber with a beautiful thick, solid creamy off white head. Aroma is light sweet malts, some yeast, light spices, hops. Taste is similar with more fruity notes from the hops, some citrus, light final bitterness. Medium body, watery texture, light carbonation.
