No, this one was very bad for me. Everyone says that this one is one of the best beers out there. not for me, again. very bad. biscuit-y and bread-y in a very bad way.

Cask at the Brasshouse; clear amber pour with a luxurious creamy off white head, crisp malt aroma, taste has light biscuity malts, with some hints of dark fruit, creamy mouthfeel, light bitter finish, I understand why CAMRA declared this the best beer in Britain but they’re ignoring a shit load of the market. Oakham Citra prevails.

jmgreenuk (5136) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 3, 2014
Cask at the Solihull CAMRA festival 2014. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is malt, light hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a lovely smooth woody hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A decent session beer but I’m not sure what all the fuss is about.
