2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
July, 2005 The Barge, Gillingham. Malty sweet best bitter with a crystal malt edge giving some damp tobbacco flavours like an old tar. More malt than hops. The crystal is to the fore. Agreeable.

Cask Conditioned, at the Market Porter, Borough, London.
Amber body, with a very thin head. Lovely malt and hop blend. Well balanced and proportioned. One of those nice beers you finish without even noticing it or taking a bloody note on the thing.
