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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
