(Cask) Hazy amber with slight white head. Subtle malty aroma. Light body with fine carbonation. Taste is crisp and refreshing - tangy slightly citrus with a nice hoppy lightly bitter finish. An excellent refreshing easy drinking bitter.

Hand pulled at The Old Contemptibles, Birmingham. Amber ale, light tasting, watery but with a slight hops twang at the end. Standard stuff really. S’ok.

Bland and inoffensive. Not much on the nose, with a thin body and short finish. Poor stuff , bearing little resemblance to the original of a few years since.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask @ The Phoenix Tavern, Faversham. Clear, slightly reddish, golden body with a small and fast disappearing off-white head. Aroma has caramel malt, some fruitiness and unfortunately some butterscotch. Flavor is as aroma, with some minor and not to unpleasant level of butterscotch. Medium body, not so much aftertaste. Otherwise rather straightforward bitter that’s easy forgotten.

Crisp floral bitter. Flowery sweet aroma belies the complex malt/hop balance in the taste. Slight palette.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 Garden House. Clear tan body with a creamy white head. Floral, citrus hops with a cereal maltiness in the aroma. Grainy malt flavour, pleasant fruity citrus hops, with a fresh bitterness. Medium body with a soft effervescence. Very solid default bitter in Norfolk, especially good if kept well and served from a colder cellar.
