3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand-pulled pint in La Cracke, Liverpool on 7th Feb 2014: this is the regular ’best bitter’ in here.
Pours an amber golden colour with an off-white topping.
Sweet malty molasses hit the nose and taste buds: this isn’t a hoppy brew. Bob gets wobbly from the maltiness within the 6% ABV of the beer. This is a most enjoyable drink, if like me, you are fond of semi-sweet beers that hide the hop content almost completely, allowing them to appear towards the finish so that the beer has a mini-dry and bitter end to each sip.
Full bodied and far too easy to drink.

Cask at York Tap. Pours medium brown with a very thin white head. No carbonation. Aromas of mixed spice , ginger, toffee and alcohol, maybe even nail varnish. Taste continues this theme, whilst managing to somehow taste stronger than it is. Odd.

A high end strong beer and very popular with customers. Not my type as it is on the sweet side which you do find with many strong ales
