No carbonation but nevertheless a lively and pleasant drink. A bit expensive though.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from Paxton & Whitfield in Bath. Bottle conditioned. Warm copper pour with a cap of white. Floral aroma, hard candy. Dried fruit, pears, a full soft flavor. A gentle bitterness lingering around the edges. A lively and interesting beer. Feels like it captures unusually well the delicate goodness of modest strength cask ale in bottled form. Also cool to see a cheese shop selling its own labeled ale, and recommending it (justly) as a wonderful cheese companion.
