Draught. This is a nice session bitter with a mild flavour and full body. Worth a go if they have it at the pub.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tawny coloured body, off-white head: this was beer number 4 (all halves) at a beerfest in The George Inn, Eccleshall (April 2012).
Gravity poured straight out the barrel: some hop smells but not a lot of anything in the nose really.
Nicely balanced taste, the malts blend in well with the hop content and a mixed bag of summer fruits appear in the flavour: easy to drink and although it doesn’t really test your tastebuds too greatly it is a fine bitter.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in June 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque tawny in colour with a thin white head. Slight sweet note in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and decent lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base with sweet raisin fruit present. Tart resiny hops gives a dry aftertaste. Bitter sweet finish. Not at all complex - just like the rest of the bland portfolio.
