3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From memory (quite few times!). 500ml bottle. Copper coloured with medium to low carbonation. Sweet biscuit/cookie, caramel, toffee, malt, mince pie fruit flavours with a crisp but not pronounced bitterness. English bitters and Old Ales always have a disadvantage when it comes to these rating systems, but this is a good example of a session beer. Unfortunately abit thin in comparison to it’s cask counterpart
