UPDATED: JAN 31, 2016 Bottle - heavy initial carbonation giving large frothy head. Medium amber with strong bitter hoppy aroma. Slight ting on tongue and in mouth. Decent bitter tasting - ok bitter.

From Lidl. Quite partial to Butcombe, this any good? A qualified yes. Classic bog standard brown bitter executed with finest twigs and quality malt. fresh grassy and hay-like hop, lingering digestive biscuit and pecan malt sweetness. The rusted tin can and buttered Hovis nose lets it down a notch. Chocolate and mint as it warms. Russet with a dying cream collar. Some rust in the mouth too. Roasted finish with the bitterness of hop behind. Alright.
