Tried as Laines Best. Conventional bitter in appearance. Unpleasant lactic aroma, very bland taste. Not worth trying.

Cask at the White Rabbit in the Laines in Brighton, near the pub where the microbrewery is based. Light malt and some hop to balance with a fruity hint - decent session bitter.

500ml brown bottle from off licence in Brighton. I thought I had an infected bottle, but looking through the reviews it seems other people are experiencing the same as me in both cask and bottle - bone dry, tart, low condition or flat, few pleasant flavours. One or two people report a delicate and pleasant beer, but for most the beer is slightly off. I suspect an infection in the brewery - and checking reviews for other beers, this is perhaps the case.

Bottle. Deep copper ale with a fairly steady creamy white head. Nose is buttery, with a touch of sweet caramel and some light peachy fruit. Initially the taste is roasty and caramel, but soon gives way to a bitter hop with some nice dryness to it. Finish is dry, bitter with a nice smattering of maltiness. Quite standard, but you really can’t knock it.
