Cask-conditioned at the Inn on the Green, Bristol 13/08/10. Amber coloured with a slight, off-white head. Butterscotch and Red fruit aroma. Very sweet flavour with plenty of diacetyl, and short bitter finish. I was grateful that it was only half a pint.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2009 Cask at the Hop Pole, Aylesbury, Bucks, 09-01-08. Pours mid amber with a white head. Good hoppy nose, tasty with a good fruity tang. There is a lovely raspy bitterness that you only seem to get with a British bitter. Really nice beer, I’m surprised at the lowish ratings. A7 A4 F7 P3 OV15 3.6
