Very malty, nutty, with lots of toffee and caramel. Fruits that go well with the maltiness. Mmm.

One of the best draft English Bitters. Many rating on here are not drinking a well kept draft pint. Temperature and Cellar essential with this beer. When itís kept right and served right (it should be a draft pint - bitter is supposed to be draft and served almost still - not carbonated!!) it is one of the very best. If you are not acclimatised to english bitter and how a draft pint should be served, then I am sorry but the reviews are missing the point. So is serving a draft Ale in a bottle carbonated. Not right.

Cask pint on 21st Oct 2016: did not realise I had never rated it before (drank it many times over the years). This was taken in the lovely little beach bar (formerly a Public Toilet Block) in Chapel St Leonards, Lincolnshire: Admiral Benbow. Poured the usual clear mahogany with that creamy head. Fruity and malty in both the nose and taste, fairly sweet throughout, yet with a bittering undertone. Always a joy to drink this fine brew when has been looked after correctly.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear nutty fluid with a small off white layer. Still a nice lacing. Caramel malty, a bit fruity and mild hoppy aroma. Decent body. Quite soft carbonation. Moderate sweet and an ok bitterness. Although it has a bit to soft carbonation. This one is still quite fresh and nice to drink. Not some dull dead caramel liquid. Fruity, herbal, hoppy and a bit toffee in the flavour.

Pours a cloudy amber with a tan head. Nose is toffee, caramel, and citrus. Taste is a bit sweet from the malt cut with fig, raisin, and floral notes from the hops. Very smooth with light carbonation and a nice crisp finish. Very drinkable.

Great copper hue with a sudsy white head and great lacing. Herbal tea like hop qualities in both flavor and aroma. Great example of the style.
