Bottle from Oddbins London Bridge. I’ve just heard the phrase "my father would have killed for a rectum of a horse." which puts everything into context doesn’t it? Dark brown beer with a lasting thick dark beige head. This is a very good best bitter. Brilliant malts, great peppery hop on the end. This is really good. A very good best bitter.

Aroma: herbal notes and toasty caramel. Flavour similar added with some dark berries/fruit. Very smooth mouth-feel indeed. A bit weird, as I am not that familiar with proper English bitters. Good though. Mr_Pink_152 (4884) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
