2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
<i>Cask Conditioned at The Royal Oak, London</i>
Red-amber color, no head. It doesn’t have much aroma, maybe a very light yeast, cream and chocolate. It has a dry mouthfeel, with a good flavor of medium dark caramel, with very light but interesting notes of cookies and chocolate. Correct bitterness. Simple, but just a notch above many boring Bitters.

Rich orange, small head. Slight acidity to the aroma, sweet and malty. Milky creamy palate. Caramel in both aroma and taste. Body mostly sweet malts. Hops quite subtle, but build up after a while. Quite a tangy finish. Pleasant session bitter.
