Nice standard bitter that hits the mark. Some people are wanting more than it was intended but it is an easy session beer. If you want something bigger or different, this will not be the one.

Amber, bright, bubbly head. Not much aroma but a really nice creme brûlée 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!

Gravity cask at the Fat Cat, Colchester. Poured a clear medium to dark amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with a watery palate. Medium bodied with flat carbonation. Nice for a session but average in the greater scheme of things.

on tap oured a slightly cloudy rich amber with a nice off-white head that would leave a fair amount of lacing. The aroma was a nicely balanced malt and hops sensation, if a bit underpowered. A good easy flavor just barely sweet upfront with a light bitter finish that lingers gently. It is smooth with a barely perceptible tingle in the mouth.
