2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells acid but the taste is not acid at all. Light body, short end. Nothing else (for me!) special to report.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty much on the money. Very clean and straight with good sharp bitterness, particularly for a beer weighing in at 4.5. Some hard herbs and aniseed here and maybe even a touch of fennel. not traditional but works well.

Hazy, tan. Even head looks like sparkler. Earthy herbal nose. Juicy, toasty, well-balanced palate. Very authentic - the pint disappears before I’ve had a chance to write anything...always a good sign in a bitter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ brewpub. Rich gold with nice haze and a loose lasting classically cask head. Aroma is nicely bitter with very dark green leaves and grasses. Cask mouthfeel is nice, soft, easy, and slightly oily. Flavors add fruitiness and flowers to the lingering, gentle bitterness. Woody too. Is very English and very nice.
