Attractive bronze/brown colour. Mainly malty, a bit of fruit with some tangy hop notes coming through late. Reasonably dry. These malty Autumnal bitters aren’t my favourites, but this was proficiently made, if uninspiring. Cask (handpump) at the Magpie and Crown, Brentford.

Cask Conditioned, at the Malt Shovel, Horsham. </br>
Amber, bright and well behaved. Served super fresh in what is Horsham’s number 1 Real Ale pub. 6 pubs and 4-6 casks behind the par (plus all the regular lager suspects). Another good solid bitter from Weltons. The only criticism I might make of this is that it just too similar to the last Welton’s I had. Possibly not as crisp, fresh and bright as the last but certainly all the same flavours.
