2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask from stillage at the Romsey Beer Emporium. Bright amber with a ring of translucent head; aroma of damp straw and English hops; light, rather than thin, with a gentle pale malt flavour; then some even gentler hops before a dry and biscuity finish. A simple, straightforward bitter, very drinkable, but not one to make you sit up and take notice.

Sampled from the cask at the Old Vine in Winchester. A bright, clear, golden amber colour with a white head. Biscuity aroma with fruity hop notes. There is a pleasant mild malt taste with hints of biscuit. Fruity, dry slightly citrus hop taste. Refreshing and complex, with many layers of flavour. British bitter beers are great when they are like this - light, refreshing and complex with a long, dry finish. A great well-made beer.
