A clear dark brown pour from the cask at The Westbourne. A nutty and doughy taste. Not much of a nose on it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Green pears float atop this Brown Bitter’s mild caramel malts, joining citrus fruit allusions into a smoothly mineral finish.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam tops the hazy amber.
-Malts also develop honey flavors.
-Light leafy hops appear in the end.
-This is very drinkable, yet not very memorable.
On cask at The Mitre, Cambridge.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A basic bitter, floral hoppy aroma with similar taste. Suprisingly hoppy/bitter finish, it makes you wait for it a bit but it’ll come.

Share with Bish. I savoured every moment of this. Spangled headband swirling nauseatingly with industrial wasteland. Sanitised enigma and educated hops leaping with abandoned glee. Dabs of monosyllabic monologues with a twist of bandages. Cuttlefish.

Another plain vanilla beer, this one at least hit the spot after a long tour of rural countryside roads in southern England. It was either this or a Guinness and the lighter style won out. Drink it for a tick or when you do not care about ratings but otherwise I’d suggest passing.
Aroma / Appearance - The thin caramel base has wisps of dim white head. Mild ops, caramel, and creamy milk are the only signs of life.
Flavor / Palate - Creamy milk poured into a cup of tea provides a light bitter profile that does not offend the palate. The finish is weak and fades quickly. This has no huge flaws but is forgettable in the grand scheme of things.
