Draught cask and in good nick. Aroma of molasses, rich biscuit. Light brown, with thin white lacy head. Smooth, balanced, bitterness pitched perfectly for supping. Silky mouthfeel. Malty. Slight woody smokiness. Superb with mature cheddar cheese.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber and quite fizzy, strong lemon citrus note from the american hops - dry bitter finish which holds on the palate for a while which for me generally means one is enough.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks like a true pint of bitter, nut brown colour, good head, but flavour of a more golden beer, not what I was expecting. Grapefruit flavour, dry and bitter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 500ml from Morrison’s at Staveley, Derby’s. Amber with white head. Bright, fresh notes from the start with this, there is a crisp, biscuity, malty body followed by, herby, bittering hops with a zesty character. A little heavy on the CO2 but really rather pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A fine amber color with a off white head. Ok lacing. Good looking. Bready, citric hoppy and a bit fruity. Medium body and a fine balance between sweetness and fresh rich bitterness. Average carbonation. Bready, citric and pleasant fruity flavor. One of the best 3,5 beers I have had. Lovely fresh and tasty stuff.
