3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Clear amber color with a finger thick white that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Caramel malty, light hoppy and fruity.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet and a fine bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Well balanced and nice malty, fruity and mild hoppy.
Overall impression: I do personally prefer Bitter from a bottle. A lot more fresh because a bit higher carbonation. This one was a perfect example. Sadly they did not have it on tap at my visit. So I could not compare.
Personal stats: Bottle @ source

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (bottle conditioned) from Stirchley Wines & Spirits, Pershore Road, Birmingham. This may have been classed as a bitter but I’d say it is more of a golden ale. Pours a clear amber with sediment. Nice head with a decent lifespan. Faint, citrus aroma with some fruity hops. Poor mouthfeel - too fizzy for my tastes and more in line with a pale lager. Taste is initially bitter but soon gives way to sweetness and a huge shot of citrus. Decent session/barbeque ale but not at all memorable.
