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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 500 ml. Deep amber, brown with a red tint. Thin white head with almost no lacing. Aroma of caramelised sugar and spice. Bitter and hoppy taste and, right before the finish, a taste of pure snow (strange association, I know, and this is the only beer I’ve had tonight...). Lot of hops in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
September 12, 2014 - at Southampton Arms; on handpull. Incredibly bright and clear deep reddish copper with a decent lasting mottled beige frothy head. Smells like a somewhat more florally bitter bitter - simple, sort of sweet - taste follows - not too twiggy, reasonably balanced, not too sweet - not particularly memorable either; refreshing ... light, airy, light carbonation, quick finish - refreshing enough; clean.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Bell, Waltham St Lawrence. Bright chestnut with a thin cream head; sweet, honeyed, buttery aroma; smooth in the mouth with a rich oily texture, sweet richly roasted malts, and some chocolate and nuts, combined with a light spicy bitterness; leading to a long satisfying finish. A rather good ESB style beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
5th May 2015: cask, hand-pulled pint in the Royal Oak somewhere in London. Deep red hue to the brown body, a beige head sitting on top. Malts all the way in this full bodied, smooth brew. Semi-sweet with very little hop influence in either the nose or flavour. Decent.
