3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 Currently brewed at Burtonwood, of course, although the rebuilt Brakspear plant should be back online before too long. Despite being transplanted from its spiritual home, this is still a perfectly respectable copper coloured supping bitter with an intense bitter hop attack, but a hint of fruit and malt to compensate. Very dry finish. Handpump, Uxbridge Arms, Notting Hill Gate, London. (3.0)
RE-RATE. August 2006, handpump at The Colonies, Westminster. The return to Oxfordshire seems to have pepped this beer up and this was a lovely pint of "ordinary" bitter in cracking condition. Lots of fruit, bags of bitterness, soft underlying malt and just a hint of "Burton snatch" type sulphur on the nose. A very welcome surprise.

Cask at Max’s. Pours clear copper with a creamy off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like light hops, dry cracker malt, grapefruit. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet, dry spice, cloves, biscuit malt, and cinnamon fruityness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a bad session bitter. Pours amber with pretty good head and lacing for cask. Light citrus that gives this mostly an acidic finish. OK barley presence. Cask at Max’s

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber, minerally, slightly metallic character. Touch of caramel, good hop character leaves a dry, moreish finish, really nice easy-drinking bitter, though with a hint of diacetyl.

Cask at The Three Tuns in Henley. A lot of flavour for the abv. My dad enjoyed this. It is a classic brown English beer.

Cask. A decent session bitter that was greatly helped by being served in good condition.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden copper in colour. Has a slight berry fruit character, more so in aroma than taste - and a fair bitterness.

Cask @ firebug, Leicester. Dark brown. Smells like traditional bitter. Tastes like bitter, with a lingering bitterness. Good job I like brown bitters. Adequate. I'd have it again, just wouldn't be clamouring for it!
