3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet malty aroma. Soft and mellow malty body. No sulfury hops, so not really a Burton Bitter any more, IMHO. Pretty OK premium bitter though.

On tap at the GBBF 2011.
Cloudy amber pour (start of a new keg). White head. Not very bitter for an IPA (which is what it called it in the CAMRA guide), more of an ESB as described on Ratebeer

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle, bought at Sainsbury’s, Boston, LINCS. Bottle conditioned. Poured a slightly hazy deep golden with a fluffy off white head. Aroma is bountiful with English hops, very citrusy with hints of oak and leather. Flavour has a distinct resin-like bitterness with notes of grapefruit on a subdued background of dusty, malty sweetness. Interesting beer.

3.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
(bottle) Poured a deep tan with solid head. Beautiful malt backbone with just barely enough hops for this, although what there is works beautifully.
There are some interesting tangy fruit flavours working away in the background, I’m getting apricot and prune with bitter orange.
Very clean and easy to drink.

Cask. Low fluffy white and quickly disappearing head. Slightly hazy yellow body. Mild fruity aroma and flavor with low carbonation and a short aftertaste. Too anonymous for my taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours copper with a thick beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a rich caramel malt flavor with smooth hop bitterness. This is what you would like to get in a country pub. Pleasantly drinkable and very balanced.
