Bottle oot ay The Cumberland. Pours well with a proud head. Interesting hop profile. Nice story behind it too. Well balanced bitterness. This is a very high grade traditional style English beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Deep golden pour with a tight creamy white head. The aroma is lightly spicy with a touch of light fruity hoppiness. Softly spicy with a little bit of soft orange peel and a bit of very light malt sweetness. A little bit herbal and spicy as well. There is a touch of lightly candyish character as well. Softly sweet but still hoppy. Pretty nice.

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.
