Cask handpull at Three Mariners, Hythe, Kent. Hazy golden brown colour, lasting beige head. Decent premium bitter, goodish sherbert on finish. Quite drinkable. Some quite good fruit, fruit salad. Maybe needs a little more settling in the cellar. Sweetish malts, maybe malts need more brewing out.

Bottle: Deep, deep golden, lively carbonation, stable mid-sized off-white head, herbal medical hoppy nose with a subtle fruity and caramelly tinge; dry, but not too dry bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, really soft; lingering - but a bit thin - creamy hoppy finish. Not bad, not bad.....

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
This smooth Premium Bitter shares herbal tea notes, apricots and mild caramel in a classic setup.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam laces atop the clear amber.
-This is a professional job. Makes me want to seek out more Old Dairy brews.
-Mouthfeel is pleasantly suave.
-Drinkability is through the roof.
-This is a brew that clearly shows the link between Bitter and IPA monikers.
On cask at the The Lion and Lobster, Brighton.
