yet another best bitter that is all too subdued, good malt base and everything i suppose. there was a bit of lemon there that spiced things up, overall just ’good’...i suppose i have a little bias against the genre. meh.

Malt and caramel on the nose. Had to wait for the beer to warm up a bit as it was a little too cold and the flavours were muted. However once warm up this beer start to come out of its shell. A nice dry bitterness that lingers engages the palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lustrous coppery amber in colour with a firm collar of creamy white head (on handpull, bless). Aromas dominated by pale malt, golden syrup, self-saucing pudding, rosehip and other deep, sweet floral characters. The flavour is brassy and typically of British bitter, a style I’m particularly prone to loving incidentally. Excellent length and bitterness but with definite malty sweetness. Long finishing. Essentially a perfect session pint.
