3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
1/2 pint cask, Thompsons, Edinburgh. Medium-sized white creamy head. Marzipan-like sweet nutty aroma with a crisp background, smooth bitterness and a very soft texture. Really nice as it is both stimulating and refreshing while not being offending in any way at all. Very well-made. Gentle maltiness, which only shows through towards the finish. A very nice bitter.

Thios was many of the Bitters that I tried in England. It was hot, of course and tough to drink. Poured Golden. It had little hop flavor and not much character.
