A straw-coloured bitter which initially seems sweet, but a complex dry, hoppy taste soon predominates. Probably the best example of the traditional Black Country style of bitter.

[Cask at GBBF 2003] An orange beer with no head. The aroma is very slight but has notes of hops, malt, and fruit. The flavor is nice; a malt sweet fruitiness with a good fruity hoppiness rolling along the side of the tongue and lingering. It is a little cask flat, but it has a good palate. A good beer.

Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing! A clear golden beer with a mid-sized most good lasting off-white head. Aroma of mild grainy malt, soft sweet malt with hints of straw. Taste of grainy malt, toasted malt, flowery hops, soft grassy bitterness, okay!
