Bottle from Waitrose and drunk at home. Clear mid brown lasting beige head. Slight toasty malt aroma with some earthy English malts. Toasty malts are rather good as is the balancing English hops. Rather good I thought. Good balance good brown bitter. I liked it. Good balance. Good malt good hop. Very drinkable. I’d have a second bottle easy.

Bottled, 500ml from a small shop near Baltic Wharf Camp site, Bristol. Amber with white head. There is an initial flavour of sweet toffee, caramel with a light metallic note. Sweetness continues but along with an earthy hop note. Not as enjoyable as the cask.
