3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A tasty beer that is low in ABV but packs a pleasing flavor and palate. Bottle. Pours light amber/golden with a decent frothy head. Aroma is biscuity with light floral hop notes. A very light and balanced flavor. Not bad at all. I’m curious about this style now and would like to find the best available bitters. It seems that so many beers imported from Britain look like they are only a novelty beer with their silly names and labels...hard to distinguish.
