The first and arguably the most popular of Loose Cannon’s beers. ‘Bridge’ as it’s affectionately known always brings a smile to the face of its drinker with that delicious floral and slightly sweet finish. A fantastic session ale that covers a lot of bases for a wide range of people making it a popular choice for parties.
Hops: Fuggles, Amarillo & Cascade Hops
Tasting Notes: Copper coloured, traditional ‘bitter’. It kicks off with a good bitter bite, followed by plenty of flavour. A full and satisfying roundness.

Vladivostok (410) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Medium amber bitter with typical flavour of autumn fruits and just a hint of toffee. A little flat but quite well hopped for bitterness rather than aroma. Fairly standard stuff but judging by the other comments on here I may have had a rather tired pint so will try to re-assess when I next visit a pub that serves it.

berkshirejohn (5737) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2016
Cask at the Royal Oak, Knowl Hill. Chestnut with a dense cream head; fruity aroma - cherries and red fruit; fruity taste with underlying well roasted malts; then a clean English hop bitterness followed by lingering biscuit. A well-made bitter, satisfying and easy drinking.

Leighton (17460) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2015
Cask at the Lyndhurst - Reading. Pours clear copper with a frothy, light khaki head. Mild bready malts in the nose, hints of butter and leaves, grains. Light sweet flavor with lightly toasted grainy bread, toffee accents, a little earth and leaf. Light bodied with fine carbonation; the condition is decent. Nicely balanced on the finish, with more simple, toasty malts, subtle leafy bitterness, a dash of toffee. Easygoing bitter.

Caramel malt, toffee, subtle hints of mango and a little tropical fruit on the nose. Tastes of toffee, dark caramelised sugar, a little malt and some woodiness. Medium bodied leading to a bitter dry finish.
