One of the better british bitters. Nice flower-aroma. Brown-red with a fine head. Bitter flavor. Ends a bit watery.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle Nice, shapely bottle, understated but elegant label. Someone has good visual taste as well as, well, taste. Whatever. Foams well on pouring, but subsides quickly into a thin, red-amber liquid that sits handsomely in the glass. A sniff yields little but a hint of sweetness, but a taste unveils a masterful balance of bittersweet hops and smoky malts. Neither cloying sugar nor overpowering bitterness to spoil this brew, the flavor fades delicately and evenly and leaves you wanting more. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fresh new cask. Amber color. Light malt aroma. Pleasant malt taste, maybe too weak body; partially balanced by the bitterness, but not enough aromatic.

From a bottle at the Bed & Breakfast that I was staying at in Torquay. Piss poor skunky beer in a clear bottle. Why do the english insist on using clear bottles. This might be good on tap. BUt stay clear of the clear bottles.
