On draft at a pub near Westminster. Below-par bitter; not much flavour, rather too flat.

Cask at a million pubs in Norfolk. It doesn’t matter what this beer is like. The big draw is the fact you can have a gallon for lunch, and still be ok to drive, operate machinery, work a train, or carry out minor surgery. Fact.

(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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
