Keg at Pivo Bar, York. Clouded amber with slight head. Just had to go for it, but it turned out to be quite tart and acidic over a fruity, caramel body, not what I really expected. Smooth and a little thick on the palate, a bit of a struggle.

355ml bottle (Bacchanalia, Cambridge)
Drunk at 6am just outside the security checkpoint at Stansted Airport, as we couldn’t take it with us thanks to the fucking TSA and European spinelessness. Dark, clear woody brown like a dunkel. Good beige head, with great retention. Simple dry woody and nutty. Very English in style, a million miles removed from what I consider an "Amber Ale" (namely something sweet, sticky, and incipid). Taste follows the aroma. This is more like a northern brown bitter or even an old ale, but without any of the sourness that sometimes tags along with those monikers. This may be a very simple beer, but it is very tasty and very drinkable.
