"Special Reserve"
A truly magnificent ruby coloured beer of premium strength, with a very full malty palate, balanced by a crisp hop flavour and a lingering hoppy aftertaste. As smooth as cream but not for the unwary!

Fairly standard bitter this one, tastes like the traditional bitters the old big breweries use to make, no strong stand out flavours and quite forgetable

Draught (JDW Victoria Station, London)
Dull aroma, some sourness. Pickled raisins, a bit of date, tamarind finish. Gentle tea bitterness, slightly flat palate. Past its prime, but that real ale palate is just so refreshing compared to all the keg we?ve had recently. Had some potential, but this is spooned!
