The_Osprey (6630) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2016
Cask, HP at The Angel, Islington. As ’Nethergate GB Growler Bitter, 3.9%. Clear orange, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is bread, apple, light sulphur. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is musty, bready, light citrus with a soft bitterness. Musty linger. It’s hard to describe why this is better than most bitters. It’s got great balance, nice yeast character and is in perfect condition. When on form, these traditional Nethergate bitters can be impressive. I would have liked to have drunk several pints of this one but, alas, a ticker’s gotta tick.

kwik-lime (1715) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2013
Golden colour with a fairly thick head, citrus in the aroma and a bit in the mouthful. Well-balanced, decent session beer. Surely a golden ale rather than a bitter?
