3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good bitter amber colour with a carpet of white head and plenty of sparkle in the glass. Maris Otter malt dominates the aroma spectrum with some useful mandarin juice and tangelo aromas. Slightly tropical flower scents too, hibiscus perhaps? Plenty of prickly mouthfeel and then just the most succulent citrus sweets. On-going carbonation and and slight grassy bitterness, as if you’ve picked a piece of grass and sucked some of the juice from the end. This is a good ambassador beer, not just in the style but also for the brewery. It hasn’t the body of a lot of British bitters, but it has character in spadefuls.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good solid beer. Paler than expected pour, floral aroma and nice subtle floral bitterness. Bet the cask is better as carbonation here doesn’t add anything and might be masking the subtle taste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can at BA lounge in T5. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The aroma is fresh floral, brown bread, toasted grain, orange peel and toffee. The taste is crisp, bitter, toasted grain, toffee, floral, citrus peel, straw, toasted grass and light spice with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, lively carbonation. This tastes pretty fresh. Not so bad for a canned bitter.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can @ BA285. Pours clear orange with a strong white head. Nose of fruit and vomit. Sweet with pale malts, fruit and hay. They say taste works differently in the air and I suspect the odd vomit-like aroma is due to that.
