Pours orangish/brown with a tan head. Smell is malty, nutty, fruity. Taste follows the nose - ends dry and woody. Body is light and the carbonation is slightly below average and fine in structure.

Classic one. Not really special but quite decent with its own advantages. Bit hoppy with some grass and leaves. Mild in the end and very drinkable, easy going ale.

Pours out in a clear amber colour with low head and medium body. Nose of ripe hops and caramel. Taste of medium bitter hops, light malt, nuts, caramel, light whiskey and leaves. Quite dry and bitter mouthfeel and finish. Easy and smooth to drink, really enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2013 Cask. Nice brown pour with a decent white lacing to boot. Buttery and smooth, malt backing, typical bitterness. Very smooth, creamy finish. Perhaps not all that interesting, but a great example of a drinkable bitter.
