4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hand pulled pint taken at the lovely ’Faltering Fullback’ in North London; Oct 2011: UK pint sleeve glass, unmarked. The beer was a pale copper colour, clear and bright. The head a good showing of off-white bubbles which settled and stayed. A lot better looking than the bottled version I reviewed some years back.
Good healthy aroma of hops and malts, no overpowering smell, just enough to let you know it’s a beer in your hand.
Very easy to drink, I had three pints and wanted more, but the wife needed food. A really good blend of flavours, like the nose nothing powerful, just a subdued pleasantness all round.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Cochrane’s in Hong Kong. Pours a clear, light amber with a 2 inch frothy head. Bitter malty aroma. Body is full and has a nice bitter taste. Full and satisfying for such a light beer. Amazingly good sessionability while being full flavored yet light and still satisfying. One of the best English bitters I found on draught in Hong Kong.
