3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Last beer of the day during a CAMRA pub crawl of Shifnal, Shropshire on 14th Dec 13. Hand-pulled pint in The Anvil, where the buffet was arranged for.
I bet you canít guess the body colour! OK, it might be golden and have a white crown on top.
Semi-sweet malty molasses in the nose and taste with mild hop hints below the surface.
This is a good session Ale and one Iíve had many times (surprised to find Iíd never written about it before. I like the sweeter Uk Bitters and this sits nicely in that style and taste. Not blessed with powerful flavours or a rich body itís just a well made and stylish beer.
