3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Edgar Wallace in London. Bronze body with no head. Nice spicy hop and floral nose. Possibly some faint toffee or caramel. Taste is bitter hops but there is a nice sweetness blended into it. It seems to mix just right with the floral notes. Palate feels full with this one and it’s pretty smooth. Finish is more bitterness.

Cask @ The Red Lion, Haddenham, UK Backlog 14 Aug 2004
A beer I have had many a times and will have many more times. A very decent session beer, with a nice hoppy, bitter taste. Nothing too complex, but a solid pint. Something you can trust to be good.

cask gbbf: dont know if this is the same as the best bitter but dont see that listed? it was 3.7 and this is 3.6. these are easy drinking session beers with slight bitter aftertaste but nothing remarkable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask conditioned many times in Essex and Sufolk. I drink more of this beer than any other as it is in my local. Full flavoured for its gravity, hoppy and bitter with lots of dry hops which helps it keep longer.
