3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on a hand pump at the brackenrigg inn at Watermillock in the lake district. excellent brew, pulls almost an orangey colour in the glass and almost fizzes with life, clean white head that lingers all down the glass, powerful but at the same time restrained hops and a sweetness to the finish......drank with views of the Ullswater lake on a sunny spring day, with lunch from the pub too, what more could a man want

(cask @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Hazy gold color with a soapy white head. Aroma is smooth and bitter with some sweet malts mixed in. Flavor is very clean and bitter with a good amount of hops and a nice smooth and balanced finish. Very nice and easy to drink.

I love this beer. Golden coloured and hoppy on the palate, and a real good session bitter. I drank more than a few pints of this and no hangover in the morning!

Cask Conditioned, at The Marble Arch, Manchester.
Pale blonde, very pale wispy white head. A nice clean session bitter but completely dominated by the ’authentic black country’ scratchings. Fantastic pub...best in Manchester.

This was a beautifully balanced, flavoursome beer. I had the pleasure of sampling this from the brewery in Coniston and again in Ambleside. Hoppy and rich, yet easy to drink.

Brilliant bitter. Wateredge Hotel, Ambleside. Lovely peppery hop aroma. Slides down a treat. Lingering hop finish. Very refreshing and becoming ubiquitous in the Lake District.

Cask @ Mahar’s in Albany NY. Orange pour with a big fluffy head. Mild bitterness that finished clean and refreshing. Served perfectly by a gentleman with an Arrogant Bastard tatoo. This was my first trip to Mahar’s and I hope it won’t be my last.
