3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This can be a cracking strong bitter when on top form and in the Greene King brewery tap it was. Unfortunately it is very prone to appear in the free trade in pubs that only seem to have handpumps because they feel obliged to, when it is often, not surprisingly, virtually undrinkable.This is a glowing red/brown beer with a quite hoppy aroma, sweet fruit, but balancing bitterness on the palate and a clean finish. Full bodied, but not heavy. Easy to drink, despite the relatively high alcohol level for a bitter (and I do consider it to be, in the final analysis, a bitter). Excellent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Classic, if not famous bitter since 1979. Thin head, amber colour, well-balanced aroma and taste of caramelly and nutty malts, apple, grapefruit and peppery hops, thin mouthfeel as usual in this style but enough body thanks to the long, hop bitter finish.

Tap. Small fast head, some lace, clear amber. Very yeasty aroma. Malty, muddy, woody ale. Maybe too yeasty palate. Well balanced though.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours with a small, soft head. Could use a tad bit more carbonation. Pours reddish. Malt and slight sugar odors. Tastes just what you'd expect from an English beer. A bit sweet.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown, amber color, with a decent head. Aroma of malt and sugar. Taste is way too watery, with too low carbonation. Taste is defined by malt, wood and toffee. A little too sweet, due to too much molasse. No aftertaste at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A good-tasting ale, this reddish beer has a small head and a good color. Body is medium. Malt taste is straight forward, with little complexity, but a very good flavor. Hops are medium in strength and balance nicely with the malt flavor.
