Cask. Short review at a birthday. Amber orange, still, small ring of white head. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is sweet and malty, smooth hop character, softly fruity. In good condition, this is a nicely balanced bitter.

Cimbasso (236) - - OCT 2, 2014
Darkish golden colour and a very quickly-fading head. Slightly hoppy aroma and a lightly fruity, hoppy taste. Satisfyingly long, bitter finish. A light and dry bitter. A great London beer, beloved by most CAMRA members and beer aficionados, but not as fresh and vibrant as I remember it from 30 years ago. Or is it me?
