Looks well-carbonated for the style. Uncomplicated but nicely bready nose leads to a simple, clean, drinkable bitter. Clear malty backbone nicely balanced by rather spicy hops, fairly strong, which linger, but finish clean. A well-done example of a sessionable bitter.

Hazelnut color with almost no head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, candy sugar, bubblegum. Taste is light sweet, light sour, light bitter at the end. Light body, watery to oily texture, soft carbonation. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. ar: spicy hop, soapy. ap: clear, gold. ta: medium sweetness and bitterness. pa: medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. Finish: hop. Overall: Beers have moved on since this was one of the few bottle-conditioned ales available in the UK.
Good hop flavour, but uninspiring.
