Decent clear auburn, soft ringed head. Soft soapy malt nose. Rustic sweetness, nice clean hop bitterness. Soapy sweet tang. Fairly sad copper tinge to the finish, sweet and resonating for the ABV.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask at the White Swan Stokesley. Pours amber with a cream head. I’ve had this before and thought it was a good bitter, but I got little from it this time. Some biscuit malt notes, but not good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium offwhite head. Clear brown body with light carbonation. Caramelly earthy aroma with floral notes. Sweetish earthy caramelly taste with watery dusty sugary notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dry-sweet earthy rye crisp bread aftertaste with spicy dusty notes. Nice, drinkable, perhaps a bit watery. (0.5l bottle, from Clarkes, Whitby.)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gorgeous dark copper hue, thin off white head, excellent clarity. Nose is toffee and biscuit, not much hop aromatics. Lovely deep malty and biscuity flavour, with some raisins developing in the latter stages. Long and smooth finish, with restrained bitterness featuring. Very nice bitter, like an Abbott Ale but with a little more bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Overall there is no strong aroma and it at first seems like a weak beer, however after the first mouthful the strength seems to be magnified by the hoppy bitterness. This mid brown bitter is a classic session bitter. There is only a small head which fades quickly, at first there is a strong malty taste which becomes bitter over time.

On cask at white swan, Stokesley. Pours mid brown with white head. An ultra bland bitter, not much more taste than a pint of water. Drinkable but dull as dishwater
