2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A rather typical Greene King beer. Mid-brown, loads of butterscotch, not a lot of hop flavour, not much finish. Really just a very run-of-the-mill best bitter made by a macro brewery that is more interested in marketing than product quality.

Decent dark amber pour with slight white head. Caramel, malt, touch of spice. Smooth, typical bitter finish. Nothing exceptional, but certainly gets the job done as a bitter.
