Cask at the Anchor, Little Downham. Copper with a large and somewhat loose cream-coloured head. Malty, caramel, hazelnut nose. Taste is sweetish bitter with a hint of sour. Aftertaste has a more pronounced hoppy bitter. Solid in its way but incredibly boring.

Amber, bright, bubbly head. Not much aroma but a really nice creme brŻlťe malt, juicy hop character. Totally suffolk in character, actually, a lot like Adnams. 4 7 8 4 17 Kept going back to this one.

Bottle - Dark copper in colour. Hoppy; earthy hops. Malty; grainy malts, caramel, hint of chocolate. Fruity; apples, raisins. Earthy hops meet grainy malts. Moderately bitter throughout becoming increasingly dry in the finish. Tasty. Liked this. Very drinkable. Nice Best Bitter!
