3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle, poured into a straight Firkin Off Licence pint glass. Rather fitting as this long defunct outlet was where I first came across RCH brews many moons ago. Darkish brown with a light creamy head, marshmallow aroma with a good, malt & hop taste. Sweetish with some fruit & caramel, the epitome of a good English bitter.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ Akkurat. Feels a bit schizo (the opposite of clean) with its quaffable sweetness, heavy bready malty notes and the rather strange herbal bitterness in the end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Copper-brown pour with foamy uneven off-white head that sustains and laces nicely. Nose offers sweet fruity malts with notes of figs, treacle, dried dark fruits and nutty hints. Palate is creamy smooth and easy drinking with a lowish carbonation and a moderate hop bitterness to the finish. Enjoyed this one.
