Cask; Special - January 2010.
An Ale-Conner was appointed by some towns to test ale quality. In London this position still exists, but only as an occasional ritual.
This light amber fruity bitter gets its colour from a combination of Pale and Crystal Maris Otter malts. Four hops - Fuggles, Mount Hood, Willamette and Northdown lend this special brew a spicy bitterness and floral hop notes.

Cask conditioned at Merton Winter Beer Fest 2010. Gold to amber with white head. Relatively standard bitter, sharpish lightly roasted malts with an earthy, slightly peppery hop. A touch on the flowery side, decent drinking and passes muster.
