2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A hazy amber gold coloured beer with a weak white head. A light, caramel aroma, a little butterscotch plus a hint of fruity hop. Dry mouthfeel. A dry malt taste to start, then a butterscotch flavour comes through that does detract from the hoppiness that struggles to make an appearance towards the end.

Hand-pulled pint in the excellent Kinver Constitutional Club on 3rd June 2014. Pours a good solid gold with white head that hung around. The nose was fruity with light maltiness, biscuit and bread like. The taste followed on in the same pattern, malty rather than hop bitter. Fairly smooth for a bitter and very easy to drink.
