3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Earthy hops, jam-like fruitiness and biscuit-y molasses move into leafy bitterness in this otherwise classic Bitter.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear dark copper.
-The flavour profile is balanced.
-Interest is sadly lost halfway through the pint.
-The finishing hop bitterness is rather quiet.
-Malts flavours are tight.
On cask at The Old Green Tree, Bath.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Cask at Market Porter, London Bridge, London, 21 May 2011) Nut brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, toasty nose with notes of nuts, toast and hints of chocolate. Slightly burnt aromas. Malty, nutty taste with toast, nuts, dried fruit, hints of caramel and dusty hops in the finish. Rather light body, with some sweetness. Lacks some bite, decent but on the boring side. More plain than intriguing to be honest.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at The Market Porter. Pours ruddy copper with a creamy white head. Aroma is spicy/malty. Flavor is spicy, light roast malt and something like woody. Ends like paper/woody/spicy and strangely this is not a bad thing. Is is quite off the common way. After a long, long time, a hint of mint.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask (handpump) at the Hobgoblin, Reading on 28 April 2011. Copper colour. Thin white head. Little bit of caramel in the aroma. Some pleasant earthy hops on the palate. Hints of fruit and maybe even a touch of licorice. Personally, I’d prefer a bit more bite in a bitter but that’s just personal preference and this was a decent enough drop.
