3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half, cask at Euston Tap. Pours a clear, dark amber coloured body. Fragile layer that laces well. Aroma of malty sweetness mingled with resinous hops. Taste of choc-caramel malts offset by resinous hops. Smooth and mid-dry, bittersweet ending. Quite well bodied. A Brit bitter in its best condition (London, 27.11.2012).

26th November 2012
Euston Tap. Light haze on this deep amber beer, tidy cream coloured head. Smooth palate, slightly soft. Fine carbonation. Smooth malt, nice medium flavour and slightly nutty. Minerals. Mild apples and dried fruit hops. Finishes crisp and dry. Fresh beer with a shade too many apples but good. A few days later a little of the bottled version (thank you Paul from Arbor) which lacked the apples. Nice bitter!
