Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
@ Raven, Bath. Bright amber-brown. Loose head. Looks great. Chocolate and toast aroma is actually quite appetizing. Chocolatey palate, some sweetness and good malt complexity.

chriso (7416) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2004
A decent, traditional style, session bitter. Some malt to start, bitter finish. Not too thin. Eminently drinkable. No great finesse or complexity, but you shouldn't really expect that from a session bitter . Now 3.8% (OG 1036). Handpump, The Speaker, Westminster, London SW1.
