Strong bitter taste, hops and yeast palate. Snow-white foam, stays very long. Golden/caramel colour. Leeds best? It’s possible.

Fin (7249) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2009
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

(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 18 Apr 2009) Pale amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of orange peel, biscuity malts and earthy hops. Malty, nutty taste with dried fruit, apricots, orange and generous doses of earthy hops in the finish. Medium body, good balance. Nice and well made bitter.
