3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Bricklayers Arms Yorkshire Beer Festival, Putney, London. A solid bronze/copper coloured, easy-drinking bitter. Light, soft malt aroma, with touches of smoke. Dry fruit flavours with robust, earthy hop backing. Smooth, but firm, mouthfeel. OK its not that different from hundreds of other similar beers but this is certainly a well balanced, well rounded example.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose is a little acidic and yeasty. Pours deep gold with a firm head and persistant lace. Comes truly into its own in the flavour - deep and full of character with an easy-drinking mouthfeel and a long, satisfying, well-balanced sweet malt finish.
