Based on a traditional best bitter brew. This beer is smooth on the palate and is noted for its soft, but surprisingly fruity flavour.

Cask at the Golden Lion, Newmarket. Dark gold/copper. Caramel and golden syrup aroma. Taste is sweet, super-malty, slighly treacly. British as you like. Palate has a bit more thickness than these ales often have. A tasty if unassuming ale.

Hazy amber beer, small white head. Softish palate, a tad dry. Little hop on the nose. Light soft malt blends well with tame and somewhat watery hops. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall a clean bitter but hard to get enthusiastic about.

Fairly pleasant aroma, full of beer ingredients. Mostly malty body, quite full. Taste also pleasantly grainy, quite mashy. Husky retronasals.

sm89walt (1947) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2010
Cask - Kings Head, Norwich. Amber with a lasting though small, bubbly off-white head. Toasty mid fruit aromas. Yeast, some mid fruit sweetness again on the tongue and then a hefty dose of almond kicks in finishing with a lingering dry nutty bitterness. Light to medium body, soft carbonation medium length finish.

50 cL bottle. Pours hazy dark orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is light herbal and subdued fruity hops. Mild orange fruity to light spiced hoppy flavoured. Light bitterness matched with a good sweet malt base providing a rather harmonious profile. Smooth bitter and malty finish.
