2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Retro review from Spring 2012 Wetherspoons Beer festival; this beer should be reported to trade descriptions the pump clip suggests hops, but I canít find them smell them taste them. Other than that a decent English bitter.

Much more malty in its aroma and flavours than the name would suggest it is.
