A light, easy-drinking beer with a slightly spicy and delicate floral smooth bitterness. The name comes from Shakespeare’s Bottom and the Donkey from Midsummer’s Night Dream.

Cask handpump at The Green Dragon, Cambridge. Golden with a short head. Lemon scent. Quite carbonated. Dry end. In the mouth: lemons at the start, then a malty end. Hoppy. OK but not much to it.

Hand-pulled pint in The Old Joint Stock, Birmingham on 6th July 2013 (after a certain Black Country Bus Trip). Auburn/Amber body: thin white head. The nose and taste were hop floral with a semi-sweet biscuit maltiness throughout. Mild hop bitter finish but this is a malt first brew that leans slowly towards my sort of Bitter (I have a sweet tooth). OK body depth wise and a pleasant session Bitter all round.

Cask at the Old Joint Stock, Birmingham. Poured a dark copper colour with a round glass head. The aroma is rich and fruity. The flavour is medium bitter, red berry fruit and slightly metallic. A very drinkable beer!

Gravity, 3rd Hinckley BF. Orange amber, fine white layer. Sickly buttered sock aroma with green apple hints. Better flavour (it had to be); clean pale nut creaminess, red apple skin, some hop dryness to finish. The malt is pretty decent, and the sock is growing on me...I don’t think it’s diacetyl, or if it is it’s an inbuilt characteristic of the beer: a Cally-type thing. Still, an average pale bitter, and a bit of a comedown after the Oakham and Box Steam.
