3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose with a light dusting of malt and yeast. Clear golden body with a soapy beige head. Smooth malty body with lightly bready and fruity yeast overtones. Lightly sweet with just enough bitterness to bring some balance. Medium body with nice English hops, somewhat delicate but with enough meat to satisfy.

Good bitter, though not spectacular. The word ’smooth’ comes to mind. Also, I fail to make the connection with the famous fell-walker, whose self-portrait is on the label. Still, not bad, like most Thwaites offerings.

Clear light golden with a moderately sized white head.
Nose is toasted malt, faint orange, straw, light caramel strains.
Taste follows, nothing more to add.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry grass lead bitterness at home time.
Innoffensive, boring, forgettable.

Never mind all these poncey reviews - it tastes nice and is a lovely drop on a Friday night sat in the garden. Plus it’s dead cheap if you know where to shop
