3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drunk at Pub on the Park, London Fields.. . A good bitter for sessioning. Always refreshing, with a lovely hop taste, and not too strong. Good also for cleansing the palate [in halves] in between stronger beers. Doesnít claim to be anything other than a good drinking beer.

One of those beers that Iíve overlooked on the bar, dozens of times, searching for something "better". Shame, really, as this is a very decent session beer, with a subtle, fresh malt and hop character that I wonít overlook in future.

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.

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 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.
