Amber colour with decent white head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Surprsingly hoppy, especially in the finish. Notes of grass and caramel. Had it too long ago to really remember the finer points. One of my favourite bitters though. Also, owls are cool.

Cask at Six Bells, Cambridge. Tawny/copper. Fairly flat. Nice earthy/doughy smell. The taste isn’t so balanced: herby bitter turning to a sour/sweet in the finish. I’ve had this many a time in my pre-RB days. Not convinced it travels so well.
