Like its draught cousin this is a full strength all-malt brew, made from Maris Otter malted barley and East Kent Goldings hops. In terms of personality it knocks other smooth ales into a cocked hat. But we could say the same about a lot of our ales.

Just love how this beer settles with this creamy foam head. Muffling aroma, but decent bitter English beer taste. (Manchester 201501)

Keg at the Grouse Inn, Carrog, Denbighshire. Amber with a thick white nitro head. Tastes of caramel with a little dusty hop bitterness and some metallic notes. Poor, but drinkable, and a long way from being the worst keg bitter out there.

ManVsBeer (8766) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Smooth textured golden ale with a thick creamy head. Has little aroma and a small bitterness for its flavour.

berkshirejohn (6067) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2012
Keg at the Midland Hotel, Morecambe. An inocuous bitter, amber with a tight cream nitro head; reasonable malt flavour; but lacking any real finish.

Pale brown colour. This is quite good for a nitro. Has a pleasant level of malty, fruity sweetness making it a pleasant session beer.
