An old favourite makes a rare appearance! Challenger and Willamette hops, the clean fulsome bitterness is well balanced by complex malt flavours.

fonefan (43888) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2009
Cask (handpump) @ Wellington, 1 Henry St, Shalesmoor, Sheffield, South Yorkshire England S3 7EQ.
Clear medium amber color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, coffee, oak - tobacco. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. Aroma makes you thin dark beer but this is just pale and a bit borring.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2007
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2006) A great example of English style bitter. A wholly pleasing and almost warming beer. Nutty and woody taste, which definitely presses my buttons.
