2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at The Congress, Longton. A clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet fruity malt, rubber, some orange and spicy hops. Taste of sweet fruity malt, some orange, a subtle treacle quality and spicy, floral hops. Light bodied and a smooth but also watery texture. A short fruity malt finish. Extremely drinkable bitter has its 3.5, smooth and watery. Overall though, balanced, fruity but boring. Ok.

Golden brown, thin white head; dry bitterness, a little fruit; not much to speak of; a very tired cask and the epitome of a badly served boring bitter (courtesy of the Scott Arms, Kingston).
