On tap @Old Joint Stock. Nice copper colour with small white foam. Aromas of caramel, malts, biscuit. Taste has a strong malty character, caramel, fruits, hoppy notes. A bit thin but well rounded and very tasty for its low alcohol content. A good example of an English bitter.

Sparkling and tightly filtered with a floral quality, this beer promises so much but comes across as on the dilute side for what the nose offers. More concentration and a more harmonious structure would work a treat here. Great bar clip though.
