3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint served at a Wetherspoons in Worcester (Sat 26th Jun 2010).
The beer looked a dark brown colour and had an off white head on top, the head produced some great lacing as the beer was consummed.
The smell was of roasted/toasted malts, semi-sweet treacle and molasses, couldn’t pick up any hops or other aromas.
Although this is a supposed to be an English Bitter, I closed my eyes and let my imagination run wild while drinking it and came up with a strange quarter beer:
A quarter Best Bitter, a quarter Mild, and a quarter each of both weak Porter and thin Stout.
I liked it, but couldn’t pin down what I enjoyed about the beer, should have had another I suppose, but I was on a mission (again) and had to move on.
