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.

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.

Bottle conditioned. Amber colour with a faint haze dragged up by a slight overcondition, but poor head retention. Sweet malt and grapefruity hop aromas and flavours before a dry hop bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My second bottled offering from the altar, and by far the best. Slightly greenish pale gold pour humming mustily of the hopsack. A typically churchish brew swimming with zesty grapefruit hoppiness. A crisp bite of hops in the finish with none of the biscuity oatiness characterising their more sessionable beers. A spoonful of lemon soapiness. Straightforward but refreshingly crisp Ale.

Bottle that Barry picked up at SH Jones, Bicester, Oxon, Saturday 29th October 2011, cheers Barry. Pours gold with a lacing of filmy white tiny bubbles. Little bit floral on the nose, lightly fruity in the mouth with citrus showing, though also a touch flowery in mouth. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov13 3.2
