3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale amber colour. Not much in the way of aroma, but a very pleasing dry, clean hop flavour with a hint of malt and some bitterness, leading into a crisp, dry finish. In other words, just as a session bitter should be. Another good beer from an impressive brewery. Cask (gravity), Catford Beer Festival.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A mid orange down beer, weak head. A mild malt aroma, hints of biscuit and bread. Dry mouthfeel. A dry malt taste, biscuity flavour, plus a whole meal bread like taste, there is a hint of hop in the background that becomes more prominent in the finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Quite light-bodied, earthy hops but hints of gooseberry coming through that made this not really my sort of thing. Disappointing.

On cask at White Horse, Woolton, Liverpool. Pours golden with stiff white head. A golden look but a traditional taste to this malty bitter. Very well kept and enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask pour at Craft Beer Co. Darkish orange pour, medium carbonation. A soft floral note to begin the nose, tapering off into modest bitters and a touch of malt. Body is a tad waxy, but smooth and enjoyable for the most. Flavors are a bit underdeveloped compared to some of the great session brews I sampled on my most recent trip. Modest citrus notes enliven things, and there’s a leafy tea finish that I usually enjoy in bitters. But something about it felt a bit perfunctory.

On tap at Akkurat. It had a light taste of yeast and flowers. Similar taste, a bit mild but easy to drink.
