I think this is somewhere between a bitter and an 80 shilling and perhaps closer to the 80. It’s well executed with soft sweet malt notes and a degree of smoothness from start to finish. Good beer.

I’ve had this as Pennant Ale (6/13) so it’s still bottled that way. At any rate, still a good drinkable beer. Light hopped more English style malt ale. Light to medium body amber.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 fluid oz. Pours a clear darker hue of amber with a light tan coloured head. The nose is biscuity malt with caramel notes, light fruity notes, minerality, and light pecan. Slightly watery with biscuity malt, caramel notes, light fruitiness, and British style hopping with some toffee in the bitter finish. Easy drinking British styled ale of the Bombadier / Greene King caramel forward, floral hopped variety. Solid.

Fuggles. Shuggie Otis, go look. I know nothing of baseball. Zip. Nada. Nothing of note here but perfectly acceptable.

Think Newcastle with more umps and bites. Not a lot of head but has a very bubbly mouthfeel. There's some acidity on the edge but the center has hints of caramel and an almost tea-like dryness.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy, amber-copper with a thin off-white head. The aroma is malt with some earthy and spicy hops. Hints of baked bread, caramel and toffee. The flavor is a solid malt base that makes it lightly sweet until the hops kick in for a both sweet and bitter aftertaste. Medium body, and medium carbonation. Crisp with a semi-dry finish.
