3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the cask at the Hollybush in Hampstead. Light copper in colour with a slightly amber head of loose foam. Malt and hop aromas. The taste a has a soft maltiness which gives way to pleasant, fruity bitterness of, I would guess, English hops. A lovely pint of ordinary bitter with excellent balance. Medium to low strength and highly palatable.

On tap at the the Union Inn in Cowes. Starting off with a bit of crispy hops and some malty nuts. Bit dull and lacking some carbo. This s maybe a picture of a perfect ale but it could be more crispy , hoppy and fresh.
