COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - March and also occsionally at other times. Also available bottle conditioned.
A classic Best Bitter, rich copper coloured and balanced malt and hop flavours. Brewed with Maris Otter and a blend of Crystal and Brown malts giving a malt complexity with a hint of toasted dryness in the finish. The hops confer a soft, balanced bitterness and typically English roundness to the palate.

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 20, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2011 500ml bottle (ChrisO’s post-GBBF2011 Tuesday)
Massive lychee aroma, some sourness too. Massive carbontaion. Good roast, some liquorice. Has good light and heavy elements, but they do not integrate well.
Rerate 5 days later, post RBESG2011 Sunday. More appley in the aroma, more chocolatey in the finish. Aged quite well for a BB2006. Very rich roast, toasty and nutty. Same score.
