Cambridge Blue. C;lear amber beer. Light crisp palate. Very well balanced if unremarkable beer. Not dry. Refreshing but utterly standard bitter.

(Cask at Gallows Bird, 20120523) The beer poured mahogany coloured and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had malts and caramell. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, mildly caramell, mild roastedness and lowish bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. Weak and watery.

Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell. Fair fluffy head on a dark red beer. Light, dry hops, and a bit flowery. Slightly floral hop aroma. Pretty unremarkable.

Sampled this bitter in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in January 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear tawny with russet highlights and a thick creamy white head. Prickly dusty hop aroma has floral notes through it. Good lacing throughout and a rich creamy mouthfeel. Pale malts give a rich digestive teabiscuit edge. Juicy fruit notes of red apple and gooseberry give a short intensity in the mouth. Fruit notes fade to lead into a citrus burst of hop resin in the mellow aftertaste. Decent bitter with a sweet finish. An ok session ale.

A very mediocre beer, nice color and head, a very slight bitterness but a huge letdown.

Unimaginative ale, little nose, no distinct flavour, just a regular and below average drink.
