4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I grew up on this one (late 70’s yes I’m an old taster) as I lived not far from the brewery. The quality of this is (or at lest used to be) quite variable from one pub to another. When it at it’s best it is the epitomy of Southern English ale. Perfect balance between fruit and hop biterness. If I had to chose a last pint before dyeing it would be this.

Pours a dark amber with a lasting off-white head. Aroma like an old brewery but a very nice bitter palate.
A very good Bitter.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hand-pulled pint at the brewery owned ’Royal Oak’ Borough, London on 11th Sep 2014. Really disappointed to be honest, I have had this beer at two other London pubs (White Horse, Parsons Green and The Harp, Chandos Place) and thought it a great pint: today however it was not right in any way. Almost flat and stale, should have taken it back to the bar I suppose. Wish I could have rated the previous pints, but history is history and the beer I am rating was poor. Hope to rectify this score next time I visit the South.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask in a traditional English pub near Waterloo Station in London. Creamy, stable head, thin and dense as can be expected from the style, warm and pretty, hazy copper colour. Malty character, caramel, walnuts, some restrained fruitiness (peach, figs), creamy mouthfeel, soft carbo, long peppery hop bitter finish. Totally mainstream but very enjoyable especially in its ’natural environment’.
