3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Townhouse in Milliardville. Color is golden amber. Head dies off quickly. A fairly bland brew with just enough malt and hops to qualify as beer. Pleasant. Unremarkable. Perhaps a good session beer.
Um...as I get further into this pour Iíd say the above is unfair. It has enough hops to qualify as a decent bitter. Some fruit and caramel evident as well. Itís an older, more traditional brand, so itís not a highly hopped beer along recent trends.

Ein Pint Vom Fass im Angry Friar in Gibraltar. Helle klare Bernsteinfarbe. Flacher hellbeiger Schaum. Wenig Aroma. Getreide und Malz. Im Antrunk kann ich etwas Hopfen schmecken. Dann grassig und nach Brot. Am Schluss wirds englisch wšsserig. SŁffig. Ok.

Pint from [email protected]
Pub in straight [email protected]
10 degrees C. Pours amber-Brown with decent off-white head with low retention. Aroma more present than I remember the bottled version, dominated by malt and caramel malt with just a hint of grapefruit. Smooth taste with a good balance of malt, caramel, toffee and hoppy, grapefruit bitterness which comes to the foreground in the long aftertaste which is also slightly dry and herbal. Medium body and hardly any carbonation. Though lower in ABV it seemed tastier and more rounded than the bottled version and is definitely a step up and still a tasty bitter - which actually is a little bitter in the aftertaste!

Cask at The Plough, Byfleet. 10/12/16. A feint malty aroma. Dark Amber, with a frothy white head. Light bitter. Malty. Creamy. Medium bodied. Soft. Had only had bottles of this more recently and this is way better. Also well kept, to be fair to the pub.

Cask. Slightly malted. Amber body thin top. Tastes smooth balanced and instantly forgettable. What was the state of beer like when this was champion beer in 1979?! That said there are many worse beers available

Pint near Borough Market, London. Gold to orange in colour and very little carbonation. Some fruit (orange, citra) in the taste and some bitterness when finishing. While this is the quintessential easy drink bitter, there are more interesting brews around.
