50cl bottle of Cotleigh Old Steamer from Westholme Stores, Goring. An amber pour with a ring of white head and fine carbonation; the aroma is rather watery with some grassy malts; the taste is thin as well, with some honeyed sweetness and some weak caramel hops; and then a sweet biscuity finish with hardly a trace of hops. Refreshing yes, but then so’s a pint of cold water.

Bottle from Gardiner & Haskins, Bristol. Amber with a slight, off-white head and moderate carbonation. Sweetish, cereal malt and summer fruit aroma, with some leafy hops. Flavour began with a touch of caramel, before a dab of apricot and decent, bitter finish. Fine.
