COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
All the easy drinking virtues of a light ale with a vivid hop aroma. Challenger and Fuggle hops with a hint of chocolate malt make a memorable session beer.

Grzesiek79 (3175) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 15, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 Piana sama piana. Piwo nalewane ostroznie po szkle to rosnie sama piana, gruba i czapowata, moze gruboziarnista ale stoji mocno, w zasadzie po skonczonej degustacji nadal zalegala w szklanicy. Wielgachny plus za to. Osad drobniutki i przyjemnie rozprowadzal sie po szklanicy. Zapach cytrusowy, lekko suszone drewo wyczulem. W smaku smaczne delikatne pelne i slodowo chmielne. Cos jak Blond Ale. Ciekawe podejscie do klasycznego niskoalkoholowego Bittera. Tak wiec piwo dobre wiec rowna czworka sie nalezy.

Theydon_Bois (8102) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2013
Gravity dispense at Beer in Hand, Hereford, 17/10/13. Clear copper golden with a thin off white covering. Nose is grassy, fruits, light cereals, not inspiring! Taste comprises light citrus, light bready malt, grass, dull stuff. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitter notes in the finish. A very so so affair some may say ’twiggy nonsense!’

allmyvinyl (3094) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 14, 2013
500ml bottle from Booths, Preston. Pours hazy orange with a decent white head. Grassy and floral hop notes dominate the aromas. Good hop character on the taste, some light malt sweetness. Good carbonation. Fishes a tad marmalade-sweet, nice though.

Quokka (11) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013
Fruity, malty noise with Mike malty body but not thin. Refreshing quick bitter finish. Decent head for a real ale. Nothing special but the best team ale I’ve had in some time. Good carbonation and conditioned well in the bottle.

downender (6200) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2013
Cask-conditioned at the Herefordshire & Worcestershire beeriodical, the Seven Stars, Bristol March 2013. Amber with a slight, off-white head. A forgettable bitter with slight citrus notes and a malty edge.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle ’conditioned’ from Booth’s. Fully misted orange however you pour it with a slick of white foam. Decent, thistle-like aroma with peanut butter and grassy hints. Still, yeasty, sourish again but with decent Rich Tea biscuit and grassy hops in the mix. Drinkable- which is a relief.

Fairly average session bitter. Poured golden with an off-white head. Aroma of sour citrus. Flavour of bitter fruit and a dry bitter finish.

BlackHaddock (3600) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2012
500 ml Brown bottle, best before Oct 11. Finally got round to opening this bottle conditioned bitter when on holiday down on the Suffolk coast (July 2011). It had sat for 5 hours in the caravan fridge (after a long car journey) but the beer still gushed out of the bottle, bringing bits of sediment with it, very lively indeed. The body was a light amber clour, slightly cloudy because of the excitment of the beer to hit my glass. A huge off-white head sat on top of the brew and loads of bubbles could be seen rising through the body (no sediment on view, but it did give the beer a haze). Small hop aroma, with a touch of malt, otherwise no smell. The beer was a gentle blend of hops and malts, nothing outstanding, but agreeable enough. A little thin in body strenght, but it is only 3.7% ABV, so that’s allowed. Overall, just an average English Bitter.
