3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at GBD in Washington. Poured a nice golden brown color, huge fluffy, foamy white head. Aroma was light malts, some pepper-like earthy hop notes. Flavor is earthy hops, light, thin malts. Highly drinkable and a lot more flavorful than I would have expected. A nice bitter, but donít expect it to shatter your world.

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 Bitterís 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.

A basic bitter, floral hoppy aroma with similar taste. Suprisingly hoppy/bitter finish, it makes you wait for it a bit but itíll come.
