Mild, earthy hops and light caramel malts greet the nose. Somewhat hazy, copper-orange coloured body with low white head that diminishes to ring. Toffee and caramel malt character with some leafy, earthy hops and moderate finishing bitterness. Medium-light body with low carbonation and creamy texture. Sussex Brewery, Emsworth.

The Yacht - Greenwich. Handpump. A very nice pint by anyones standards. Makes a grest drink. Flavour. The malt is defined and delicious and the hops are not overstated byut are certainly there to clean away and balance (that’s the word) the clean, juicy and sweetish malt. World class really.
I have had this beer many times. The experience depend son the pub and the condition this one was great.

Smelt lovely, looked lovely in the glass. A bit too bitter in my taste, but I had this immediately after another, sweeter, less bitter beer. It does have a bit of a complex taste though, and was enjoyable to sample.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint poured at The Half Moon in Putney, clear straw colour with a thin head. Aroma is of bitter hops with hints of berry. Unfortunately, that berry doesn’t carry through to the flavour, but the bitterness comes through on the palate. A little watery, but makes for a good session beer (which it is for me, being one of the more regularly available cask ales around London).
