Cask @ Coach & Horses, Shrewsbury. Has a light sweetness with a faint fruity bitterness. A pleasant, if rather unremarkable, bitter. Will attempt to re-rate from a bottle.

Unpretty golden brown. Aroma is flowery yet sturdy. Heavenly taste which plays with you, using light hoppy caramel notes. Mouthfeel full as ya like.

50cl bottle from the Spar in Rhos on Sea. This was definitely the best of the 4 beers from this brewery that I found there - there’s plenty of toffee, biscuits, even hints of ginger and dark chocolate. These come through on both taste and aroma. The palate is close to medium in body and it achieves that crunchy texture and clean finish I want in a Bitter. Well brewed, sir!

I loved this. A great medium body, well balanced and fully rounded traditional bitter. Ends with fruity bitter hop flavours which linger in the mouth.

Cask.A rare cask rating for me but surprisingly pleasant. Tried whilst stopping at The Old Hand and Diamond at Coedway near Shrews bury. Lovely clear appearance with a fruity flavour and a bitter Finnish. Didn’t know its strength until checking the pump clip the next day.Surprised to find out its relatively modest strength as it had plenty of body. A good one.

Feb 2008 from BA: Brown 500ml bottle containing a bottled condition English Bitter. I had the pleasure of visiting the brewery and cottage to pick this and their other beers up last Saturday, it is set in an idilic spot close to the English/Welsh border in a little village. The beer was poured into a straight sleeved pint glass. Deep amber body with a very, very slight haze, maybe some sediment got into the glass? The head never really got going and what was on top at the end of the pour had almost all gone before I picked up the glass to smell it. A pleasant hoppy, fruity (apples and pears) aroma. Stronger than a lot of English bitters. There is a good honest bitterness to this beer, it has a full flavour for a beer of only 3.9%. Although it was bottle conditioned it wasn’t fizzy or over cabonated, it was almost like a cask bitter, which of course is what they are aiming at. I thought this a delightful bitter and the fruitiness stayed within the mouthfeel for some time, it isn’t a heavy or thick drink, but it isn’t watery either. ’Just the ticket’ as it says on the label. Glad i went out and found the place, I have two more of their beers to try. I hope they are as good as this one was.
