2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
No apprent hop aroma of real flavour. Malt charateristic is good though with caramel, bready, malty notes coming through. For a 4.1% best bitter its good, but nothing else to it really. clarity was good.

Not as nice as my previous pint of Jarrow bitter. This had a more toffee and malt flavour to it

29/08/13. Pours like a bitter, light amber with a decent, off-white head. Aroma is fruity with apple, some flower, rather cider-like. Taste follows along the same lines. Palate is a bit light.

Hmm. Might have been a bad cask. No flavor. Little to no aroma. Almost tart on the finish. Had at Old Toms in Oxford.

A bit of sweet malt and some hops to round it out, but overall pretty lacklustre.

Keg draught at the Bristol Hotel, Bristol. Attractive dark amber body. Thin white head. Nose is bags of citrus, marmalade, fruit and spice. Bitter. Dry finish. Crisp mouthfeel.

My Bottom Line:
This nicely malty Bitter juxtaposes honeyed sugars to a leafy hop touch before moving to a balanced but somewhat limp (underhopped?) finish.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam clings to the bright amber.
-The malt profile shares a few hints of golden syrup as well.
-Interest tends to get lost towards the bottom of the pint because of a lack of a hop kick.
-All Bath Ales brews I’ve had were beautifully malty and professionally rendered.
On cask at The Salamander, Bath.

Cask at Highbury Vaults, Bristol. Fairly ok. No maybe not. Too sweet. Hard to finish really. Flat too.
