Sweetish and very distinctive. A dark bitter, usually with a creamy head in which malt dominates and strangles the hops. The best thing about it is the incredibly cheap price...

From the big oak barrel at Sinclair’s Oyster Bar, Manchester. Good fruity taste and aroma. Not a whole lot of hops for the style. Lots of fruit; just a bit sweet. Very smooth; very nice. Easy to drink and full-flavored, but not at all too bitter. Great balance. Excellent.

[2714-20100119] Tap. Pungent apple sweet fruit aroma. Clear, dark orange body with a quick foamy white head. Little apple flavour has lots of buttery toasted malt notes. Medium body. Really good, odd fruitiness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber body, white cream atop.
Floral hops on the nose, with a good amount of sweet toffee malt.
Smooth texture, low carbonation, medium body.
Nice hop flavour; decidedly fruity, citrus mostly, bit of grass with a biscuit and toffee malt backbone, balancing a moderate bitter finish.
Quite good, especially for the price!

Cask-conditioned at the Cittie of York, London 13/10/09. Amber in colour with a decent, off-white ehad. Fruity, caramel aroma and flavour, with a touch of earthiness in the finish. Ok.

Beautiful, creamy head that lasts the full of the length of the pint. Nice malty aroma but nothing special taste-wise, a standard and well-balanced session ale that goes down easily but is somewhat boring.
