Clear caramel golden color with a fine creamy white head. Good lacing. Decent intensity in the aroma. Medium (-) body and a soft carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Caramel malty, mild fruity and mild bready flavor. Decent and easy to drink. I am not a big fan of these bitter ale on handpull. This one proved me wrong.

Keg at Fitzroy Tavern. Pale orange, hazy, sparkling, small dense foamy white head, full thick lacing. No discernable aroma. Body is light, pretty smooth, medium carbonation. Taste is soda water, twiggy, bready maltiness, soft bitterness. Very watery and not suited to keg. Marginally better than their standard lagers.
