2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
15th August 2008. Malty start followed by a prominent sour bitterness. Quite a distinct fruit at the end. A bit too harsh.

Cask at The Artillery Arms, Ramsgate: Dark amber coloured bitter. Fruity with caramel and diacetyl. Cloying and not easy to drink. I wasn’t very impressed really, was bored of after about a 3rd of a pint.

Bottled. (BB 10/2006).
Copper brown color, small off-white head. Interesting (and odd) aroma of metal, yeast, oak and ash. Malty backbone in the medium-strength body, fruity yeastyness and hoppy finish. Some way reminds me about RCH Pitchfork - just not as good as it.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle Conditioned aged 5 years. Bronze, red orange body lasting head. This beer had developed into a smooth honeyed beer, rose wine character, sweet malt and delicate bitter notes. Well worth the effort of long storage, it becomes a classical English Bitter. Georgeous.
