Cask at the Bird-in-Hand, Knowl Hill. Light copper in colour with a tight white head; fruity malt aroma; soft and fruity in the mouth with some burnt caramel and fruity hops giving a gentle but sustained bitterness and a lingering grassy caramel finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ CPK. The pour’s a light amber brown with a faint white head. The nose is brown bread, berry, some caramel and a bit of eau du twig. The taste is pretty straight for a bitter - notes of caramel and berry. Decent smooth malty body with a lightly dry grassy finish. Well-rounded. A decent representation of the style. Nothing’s wrong here.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the Craft Beer Company, Clerkenwell. Poured a nice reddish brown with a glass hugging white head. The aroma is hugely caramel and very pleasurable. However the flavour was a little sour, watery and not particularly tasty. I would not order another.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hand pulled at the Victoria, Birmingham. Brown bitter. Resolutely English. Native hops produce dryness, mushy orchard fruit and a smidge of preserve. Somewhat dry, slightly rich. Traditional but well executed. Good Bitter like this is very refreshing.
