(Cask at Harp, Charring Cross, London, 20 Nov 2013) Copper colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, nutty nose with dried fruit, apricots and earthy hops. Malty, fruity nose with notes of nuts, caramel, dried fruit and a moderate, dusty bitterness in the finish. Light body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty but a bit thin. Quite nice.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 (caSK IN Bridport. Dorset) Lots of malt flavour depth - a tad hoppy in this profile. but really like drinking liquid brown bread -that’s what I visualized . easy to sink and subtle relaxed flavour -what a Bitter should have going for it .

stesso discorso che vale anche per la "palmers bitter"..in questo caso colore più scuro e sentori legnosi nell’aroma e nel gusto..piacevole senz’altro ma nulla di speciale

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
beautiful looking beer, a deep dark red with a slightly off-white head.
Taste, however, isn’t as impressive. Nothing wrong with it, there’s just no real impact. Suitable as a session beer, without destroying your palate if something else on tap takes your fancy.

Lighter and drier than Best Bitter, this is a nice session beer in the old style. Usually seems to have good head retention for a deep-south beer and the name describes the appearance to a tee. Very pleasant.
