Bottle. Golden beer with a very strong head. The aroma is lightly dry and the flavour is dully hopped. Overall quite a plain weak beer.

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

Cask at the Anchor, Birmingham. Poured a clear amber with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma is weak malty. The flavour is smooth, chewy and uber malty with some fruit and a nice smooth bitterness on the palate and into the aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pissy colour and the aroma of fuddy, wet animals. Less than appealing start to what turned out to be a stale and boring brew. Te only notable thing here is the boozy petrol finish.
