3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, shared by Ot the Explorer. Clear amber color, short head. Aroma of earthy and flowery hops, not really outspoken, english yeast notes, hint of butter, caramel, toast. It feels for me these kinds of beers should be better drank from cask. Soft bitter taste, slight sweetness. Typical English bitter, hard to distinguish this from other bitters when it’s the only bitter in a tasting.
