3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home in London. Night before heading to USA. Pours crystal clear copper with a monstrous, ever-growing white foam head. Bit of toasty malts in the nose, some light ripe fruits, light caramel. Light sweet flavor, dry wood, leaves, toast. Light bodied with absolutely explosive carbonation. Light dry finish, light sweetness, mild tangy berries, some toast. Not altogether bad, though I can’t imagine the condition is optimal.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep copper colour. Some toffee in the aroma. pale malt in the flavour, but a reasonable hop presence too, producing a good balance. Finishes dry, with plenty of bitter bite. A rather nice best bitter. Cask (gravity dispense) at Peterborough Beer Festival.
