Floral with a light degree of bitterness this thin bitter beer seems brewed for ale skeptics. Needs more substance and even a bit of sweetness before it can be a crowd pleaser.

Cask conditioned handpump Althorp Coaching Inn Great Brington 03/04/13. A brown beer with a white head and lace. A malty note to this with a thin fruity nose but lots of character in the mouth. Lots of chocolate flavour. Interesting and tasty. Just needs a better nose.

Pint at The Wheatsheaf, Felling. Clear amber with a rocky white head. I think the sauvingon flavour must be part of the house style, because its there again in this beer, but there’s a decent toffee flavour. Thin texture, a bit ordinary to be honest.

First tasted this in the Bon Accord, Glasgow in April 1995. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear gold in colour with a thin white head. Floral hops in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a slightly citric note of grapefruit and lime. Floral hop resins impart a bitter aftertaste. Well balanced finish. An ok session bitter.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quayside, Lloyds No1 Bar, Newcastle. This was a crackin’ pint, good clean amber in colour with a fine bubbled long lasting head. Well hopped with a malty sweetness, but it’s the hops that dominate, and these linger well on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Festival ’07. Amber with big white head. Dry, fuller bitter with a ric malty body, however there is a slight sourness, graininess in the flavour too. Good old fuggles finish I reckon. A reasonable beer.
