Gravity pour, half-pint at the 2014 Bridgnorth Beer Festival. Clear amber in colour, weak white topping. Semi-sweet and fruity in both the nose and taste, very drinkable. Nice blend of flavours and well balanced brew, an old style bitter that is worth finding.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2014 500ml bottle at home. Pours promising enough with a nice auburn colour, and great head. But hops seem a bit thin on the ground.. tried grasping for malts but they seemed to dissipate like a beer mirage. If only I could get some of the tasty sounding stuff everyone else described below.
