MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Crme brle and caramel on toast set the foundation for fruity and leafy bitter hop resins in this engaging Bitter.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam stands atop the misty dark copper.
-The finish is surprisingly dry, especially since the nose is so malt and sugar focused.
-The mouthfeel is soft and natural, conducive to large gulps.
-The flavour profile is perfectly balanced.

On cask at The Market Porter, London.
