UPDATED: APR 23, 2017 Pours a clear rich golden colour with a small creamy off white head. The aroma is bready, some malt and grassy hops. A similar bready taste, toffee malt, some grassy hop bitter flavours. Good body, smooth and moderate bitterness in the finish. Very nice.

The_Osprey (7890) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2017
Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall as Bowman Quiver Bitter, 4.5%. Currently a top 50 bitter. Golden orange, still and clear with a foamy white head, leaving full lacing. Aroma is bready malts, white bread, breadsticks. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is again bready, nice tangy astringent hops, with a musty wood linger. Its a well made bitter. Balanced and drinkable with a good assertive old fashioned hop character. Nice condition. If I were rating to style Id give it a perfect 5. It is the epitome of bitter.

Cask, 1/3 pint at GBBF 13, day 1. Clear golden body. Shiny naked surface. Aromas of grassy hops joined by malty sweetness. Leafy hops and caramel flavours leading to a dry, bittersweet ending. Decent, well blended Brit bitter (London Olympia 13.08.2013).
