This was my fist and only bitter that was sampled while in the UK... I was not too fond of this beer (mabye I am not used to bbitters) funky sour taste mixed with wate, but nice fluffy white head that remained throught, I did not even finish this beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma isn’t aplenty in this beer. Some malts, with some sulphur here too. Settles to a nice amber colour with white head. Taste is simple and bitter, malty. Very dry finish, long and bitter. Easy drinker. Session.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nitro tap at Claddaugh. Gold pour with decent white head. This one slides down very nicely. Light body, but I wouldn’t call it watery. Not much in the way of aroma. A bit of bitter, but a lot more creamy honey sweetness. Buddy of mine who really doesn’t like beer liked this. In that sense it is inoffensive. I won’t be hunting this down, but this might just make my next cheap session.

I prefeered the one in Cask, this was a little squashy and nasty in flavor so far, not really to drink the whole bottle.
