2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A regular cask bitter, not too high on bitterness and certainly a session ale. Copper coloured without a head.

On cask at JDW Market Drayton - Copper body with a nice white head. Aroma is not very powerful, but with enough effort you can just make out the fruity notes. Somewhat bitter taste and finishing with a pleasant bready taste at the end. Obviously, this is easy drinking, but, as others have said, this beer lacks any real complexity.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hand-pulled pint in The Euston Way (a plastic pub) in Telford on 17 Nov 2012 as I wait for my transport to a beer festival.
Dark gold/old gold in colour with a good covering of off-white foam as a head: lacing followed the beer down the UK sleeve it was poured into.
Slight aroma of fruitiness and malt semi-sweetness, but nothing strong.
The taste was as the nose: malty and fruity.
I used to love this before I started to stretch my taste buds and bounderies: still a good example of a UK Best Bitter but it could be so much more with a little more care and alcohol content.
