Drunk after visiting Sheff for footy, Good beer at amazingly low price. Had to ask the bat maid if she’d added up wrong as it was so cheap compared to the Manc city centre prices I’m used to

Cask at the Glittering Star, Darlington. Clear golden brown amber colour, creamy white head and aroma of malt & toffee. Taste is sweetish malty caramel, with a light dry bitterness and slight fruity & toffee notes. Creamy smooth mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Overall a quite drinkable bitter.

15th January 2013
Wooden cask at the lovely old Anchor Tap - Tower Bridge. Almost clear amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Softish and semi dry palate. Nice mouthfeel. Good tangy dried fruits with a pleasant hint of sourness. Semi dry finish with super mild bitterness. Nice bitter! Seems to be rounded off and very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Angel, New Oxford Street. Nice healthy amber pour, thick and well carbonated. Nose is fairly unassuming but appealing in its combination of dry notes and substantial malts. Mouthfeel a bit thinner than needed but the flavors are nicely satisfying, with bright herbal notes giving things a nice liveliness.

Sweet berry aroma, has a hint of this in the taste but is standard stuff in reality.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Completely traditional bitter, easily one of my favourite beers. Classic of the style, but very old fashioned and understandable why some people might not like it. Incredible value for it’s cheap price.

When cost is taken into consideration, this is my choice bitter. Clean, complex for a bitter, and yet everything a bitter should be.
