Bottle: Light reddish-amber coloured, almost clear, creamy and stable off-White head; caramelly and fruity nose; light bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied, as well; more bitterness detectable in the all in all dark-malty and fruity finish. Nothing wrong with it, just a bit boring...

Osprey87 (2022) - WALES - OCT 16, 2014
I’ve had this before, not sure how it fell off my rating radar. Anyway, cask this time. Dark orange or light brown, hazy, still, small white head, light lacing. Nothing to report in the aroma. Body is medium, slightly foamy, touch of carbonation. Taste has burnt toffee, slight ash, malt-forward. Average sweet malty bitter.

Draught at The Harp, London. Clear amber with almost no head. Light to medium with low carbonation. Well balanced sweet and bitter tones. Malts, caramel, brown sugar, hops and herbs. A nice somewhat sweet bitter.
