Clean golden color. The aroma is a bit cheesy. The flavor is not surprising, but at least there is some malt; the hopping is decent, well bitter, butterscotch, lightly aromatic and metallic. Quite pleasant.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask (handpump) at the Olde Bulls Head, Beaumaris, Anglesey, October 2005. Pale amber colour with a creamy, off-white head. Slipped down easily. Not much aroma. A smattering of citric hop on the palate to provide refreshment with just a hint of dry malt for more body. But its really just a decent, straightforward, quaffing bitter, with nothing really to distinguish it from hundreds of others. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, provided you’re not looking for too much to scrutinise and analyse.

Cask at Yew & Ewe, Brookland, Kent
Mid brown beer which I kind of quite like and will normally have a pint if I see it on. It has some interesting malty tones to it, but has enough hops to keep it balanced
