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.

Bottle. Pours copper with a thin creamy head. Aroma of caramel malt and slight fruit. Flavors are sweet malt, muted stone fruit and earthy hops. Creamy mouthfeel but slightly peppery. Nice traditional English ale, but nothing extraordinary.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Generous sample at ACAT. Nice, hazy orange, with a creamy, beige head. Lovely caramel aroma, with notes of honey, cashews, and white bread. Sweet, with a mild hop bitterness. Medium body, creamy, and smooth. This is an excellent, balanced, and easy drinking beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a copper robe topped by a vivid white head. The nose is skunky but lets through some floral hints and a touch of honey or toffee. The taste is balanced but offers a tiny bit too much bitterness from thet malts for my taste. Good english ale.

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.
