Pours golden with white head. THe aroma has some has some hop aroma. The flavor is just bland. There is a very slight bitterness at the end but a bit of a disapointment overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at The Waggon & Horses, Tipton, W.Midlands. Gold with white head. Looks like I was fortunate to have the cask version, smooth, big flavoured bitter for the ABV, dry and hoppy with a fragrant tang to it. Long tasty finish.

Some bottle condtioned beers are as good as their cask conditioned version.Unfortunately this is not one of them.
An acid taste overpowers the whole beer so it is hard to say what other tastes it really has to offer.
If you are patient enough you eventually reach a suttle bitter taste which gives you an idea of what it would be like in draught form.Perhaps I was unlucky but on this tasting this not one I would recommend.
