3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
440ml nitro can into a pint glass.
Pours a rich clear copper with a cascading tan had that settles into a two finger cap. Really good lacing and head retention.
Aroma has a definite metallic twang but otherwise is pretty light. Some pear and caramel but nothing really sticks out too prominently.
The taste is quite nice. Caramel and bready grain along with pears and some peaches. Caramel and toffee along with toast provides a light roasted character. Bitterness is sharp but pleasant although it comes close to being acrid. Finish is crisp and clean giving this beer tons of drinkability.
Overall, an average nitro English bitter. Not on the same level as Old Speckled Hen or Tetley’s but better than Boddington’s. At $7.99 a 4 pack, the price is alright and I can see myself picking this up again.

Draft at the Millennium Hotel Glasgow. Pours a clear caramel/brass with a half finger of creamy head that coats the glass. Aroma has nice notes of caramel, fruity esters, toffee, and traditional hops. Taste is balanced. Slight caramel and toffee but a bit too many bittering hops.medium body with a low carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a mildly dry finish. Overall. Kinda average. Aroma is inviting but the taste is a bit underwhelming.
