3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 500 ml from PS. Amber with a generous foam. Aromas of hops, zest and orange, pleasant fruity but earthy. I find it very typical of the style, with earthy and grassy notes on a delicate malt albeit slightly too light. Hints of tea, jam and biscuit, in brief what advantageously remplace the boring 5 o’clock tea !.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bernie’s Off License, Solihull. Poured a clear medium amber with a broken frothy white head. The aroma is grassy hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a grassy, pepper spice hop palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. One of the hoppiest bitters I’ve ever had. It was very tasty and refreshing too.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Darker golden ale with malty undertones. More a true bitter than anything fancy but is only mild in this respect.

Bottle. Vibrant cloudy amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is very hopped with some toffee, and the flavour is very bitter with a strong amount of hoppy’ness. Overall very nice well hopped bitter.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 26/08/12. A copper coloured beer with a massive rocky spongy white head. A head like that from a Britsih BCA fills me with dread, but this is really good. Obviously English ingredients but really hoppy in flavours. Nicely fruity. The nose is really hoppy even from a distance. Orangey fruits and a bit of spiciness in the mouth. A bit of marmalade. Very impressed.

Hand pulled at the Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Clean, refreshing Bitter. Well blended: tobacco, faintly sweet malt and crusty pepper w/ UK hop finish. All round good stuff - the sort of thing that gives UK cask Bitters a god name.
