A light brown Premium English Bitter with a delicious malt combination, Bad To The Bone delivers fantastic biscuity undertones with a real hop finish. Surely thatís an ale that canít be all that bad?

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle from The Wine Cellars. Dirtied honey capped generously with white. Good succulent red apple, melon, blackcurrant and fruit salad chew aroma. Overly fizzy but with a pleasant spiced plum and Fruit Salad character emerging from beneath the carb. Blackcurrant and flowers. Well up for trying the cask version.

BlackHaddock (6220) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Gravity poured half-pint on 18th Oct 2014 at the CAMRA Oxford Beer Festival. Golden amber coloured body with a thin off-white wispy head. The aroma was mildly malty with a fruity, floral hint. Taste followed the nose closely with light malts leading the way, some nut and fruit traces which gave way to a dry and semi-bitter finish: an OK brew.

Cask-conditioned at the Gryphon, Bristol 27/11/2012. Amber with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of hedgerow fruits, slightly earthy malts and a touch of leafy hop. Easy drinking, with solid, cereal malts, some more fruit and a decent, bitter finish. Fine.

Cask conditioned handpump Rowell Charter Rothwell 06/11/12. An amber coloured beer with a white bubbly head. A bit of crunchy malt in the nose with a touch of fruity hop. Nice bittersweet balance in the mouth with a lick of citrus from the hops. Competently done.
