mt_hall (119) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2014

Bottle 500ml (AbM)
Clear amber/copper color, small white head. Caramel, grain and light hoppyness in the nose. Light bodied. English pale malty, typical English hoppyness. Nice late bitterness. Fruity sweetish notes. Quite classic English bottled bitter and stands much bolder than its 3.8 %.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Pouring in thin with a low head. Nose is also thin with some malty moments. Taste of caramel and malt with a decent dry finish. Drinkable and honest beer without being special in any way/

JohnCook101 (325) - - DEC 30, 2013
Home keg. Deep copper, very slightly hazy with a very small off-white head. Mild malty aroma. Fairly standard bitter. Some malt, light caramel, slightly toasted, decent bitter finish. An unexceptional but serviceable session bitter.
