MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This mainly fruity Bitter otherwise pairs caramel malts to leafy hops before sharing light tartness within a mildly bitter finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the gleaming copper.
-This is very drinkable, but too fruity for my tastes in the style.
-The fruitiness does not come from the hop bill here.

On cask at The Devonshire Arms, Cambridge.

JorgeLee (1354) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2013
Cask at the Pembury Tavern E8. A coppery coloured bitter. I may have been spoilt by some very high quality beers drunk earlier in the evening, or this may have been subpar in condition but I thought this was pretty poor. Lacking bitterness, I’m not a huge fan of this hop variety, hints of veg and dishwater.
