chimpgibbon (286) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Ha ha of course this isn’t like any bitter you’ve ever had. Bordering on a sour it’s zesty, sharp and thirst quenching. Some malt, wonderfully nuanced carbonation. Red wine, gooseberry, lemon. Legend again.

Cask handpull at Churchkey. Murky goldenbrown color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma is malty, floral, subtle white pepper. Taste is nicely balanced and easy to drink.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This straightforward Bitter marries earthy, leafy hops to subtle caramelized malts before grassy bitterness kicks in next to light minerals.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear amber glow.
-The mouthfeel is soft with low carbonation. It’s obviously hugely drinkable.
-The first half of each sip is rather quiet.
-Malt flavours could be better developed.
-This is good, clean Brown Bitter.

On cask at The Cross Keys, Covent Garden.
