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.

Bottled 500ml (AbM)
Clear copper color, small off-white head. Aroma has odd cellary hops with hints of crystal malts. Light-bodied. Flavor is also on heavy earthy hoppy side with back crystal malts although not really sweet. 3.8% is not a problem. Odd.

500ml . In a pint . One of the last beers from a gift pack that Uncle Steve got me @ Christmas . Brown Bitter customary colour . Spicy hop nose , malty rich caramel, cake notes . Quite well balanced in textures . This ain’t the type of beer I’d buy myself , and its obviously going to score higher if Cask , but not a bad bottled ale .

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.
