An authentic British bitter in great condition on cask. Nice blend of lightly toasted malts and UK variety hops. The best cask beer I’ve had outside the UK.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Magnolia, pours a clear copper orange with a small beige head. Aroma is very subtle, with toasted herbal notes. Flavour tastes like nothing, just some subtle toasted malt with an English twist. Boring as hell - nothing to this.

10 ounce sample on tap at the brewery last weekend. Spicy and grassy hop aroma with light underlying sweetness. Transparent orange-copper body with a small, light tan head. Starts with some cereal-like flavors. Light toasted malts follow. Lightly sweet caramel, too. Finishes with low grass hop flavor. Pretty drinkable.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Awful diacetyl bomb. Butter, caramel on the nose, and in the flavor. The finish is butter, vaguely English hops. Thin in body. Not good. Wish I could try just one good example of this style.
