3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Oddbins London Bridge. I’ve just heard the phrase "my father would have killed for a rectum of a horse." which puts everything into context doesn’t it? Dark brown beer with a lasting thick dark beige head. This is a very good best bitter. Brilliant malts, great peppery hop on the end. This is really good. A very good best bitter.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very dark bitter chestnut in colour and has only a thin film of a head however the sediment in the bottle is very fixed to the base and makes for and easy pouring ale. The flavours and aroma are very similar differing only in intensity, the aroma is a gentle and has a mild citrus and malt tones the flavour is the same however is far more intense, the hop really comes through and creates the bitterness which is slightly weakened by the malt content which leaves a bitter nutty flavour at the finish.
