Cask. Little aroma. Poured cloudy brown clearing to darkish copper with thin white head. Ok in mouth and on tongue, smooth though again little depth to taste. Enjoyed but nothing exceptional.

Has a light hoppiness in the aroma. A fairly simple bitter that is rather thin and watery. Lacks depth.

On tap at Crown & Anchor in Eastbourne. Pours out in a hazy brown colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of light malt and bread., Taste of bread, malt, acid berries and basement. Dull and boring to drink with no deepness. Awful stuff.

On tap at Eastbourne shared with McTapps. Had two on that day and this one was more or less awful. Brown and dull with a bit of malt and some russian style malt syrup. Developed some taste of chocolate in the end but until that it was more or less undrinkable.
