2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hand-pulled pint in the breweries only pub ’Ye Old Fighting Cocks’ Oakengates on 13 Nov 2012.
Light amber to golden colour with a good, full head of white foam: obviously fresh and in good condition.
Slightly more hops evident in the nose and taste than the malts, no deep flavoursor smells but a pleasant session ale that isn’t going to upset your taste buds a great deal.

Bottle. Golden and poured with a small head.Low carbonation and clearly better bottled than some of their other beers. Some maltiness but really a good session bitter.Nothing spectacular but still pretty pleasant.
