This imitation brew has a superb texture to its bitterness, but not much flavour.

Truly average bitter. Decent hop character but aside from that, little to make it stand out.

15th March 2012
The Pommelers Rest Spoons, Tower Bridge. Clear amber beer, short lived white head. Light crisp palate, semi dry. Nice tart juicy orange with a little marmalade. A little lemon and minerals. Turns sweeter before the dry finish. Good bitter linger. A refreshing beer and one of the finer bitters I’ve had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Pours rich, clear gold with a fine, foamy white head. Somewhat nondescript aroma, some light light toast and straw. Light to medium sweet flavor, quite bitter with grass, dirt and twigs. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Nicely balanced to finish with some toasty bread, toasty sugar, burnt grass, light dirt and wood. Very decent overall with lingering hops.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The Baron, 26/03/12. Bright and brassy with an off white layer. Soft and flowery after the Zulu; elderflower, medicinal throat sweet bitterness, hard boiled cherry sweets. Bit messy but OK. Smells like a hedge; shrubs, some weak pine and grain aroma. Has a tainted, gastric, shampoo bitterness again that doesn’t feel right. Odd.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with white head. This had been somewhat Spooned, there was a tart fruitiness rather than hops, line cleaner too, however late on a vinous, sharp note showed through. Hard to come up with a mark.

[Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading] Amber. Smells fresh and tastes fresh, lemon and pine come through, but the flavours are more muted than I expected from this world renowned brewer. Reasonable, but well short of great.
