Bottle at home. There was a time when I would drink nothing but bitter, but after trying heavy hopped beers and enjoying them. I can’t go back to bitter. Just another boring bitter

BeardedAvenger (791) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2017
Cask at Station, West Byfleet. There was a time (15+ years ago) when I was excited to see this beer on tap, as it was the local microbrewery beer that started to appear in local pubs. Not had it for years though... debt aroma - floral and malts. Chestnut. Creamy white half moon of a head. Sweet and sour. Gets bitter into the finish. Malts and caramel. Stewed fruits. Twigs. Light-medium bodied. Has slickness to it. Light carbonation. Middling finish. Hmmm... Just another boring bitter.

Pint on cask. A nice, pleasant, straightforward pint of bitter. There’s a little more sweetness than some bitters, giving it some caramel flavor, but otherwise it’s a standard pint of good beer.

Bit of a local brew this one, can’t believe I’ve not rated it before. Traditional Goldings/Fuggles mix for this delightful standard bitter

Handpump at Doggett's Coat & Badge in London. Clear and reddish Amber color, off-white minimal head. Nose: traces of metal and butter (sadly), ripped red fruit. Mouth: a kind of under spirit fruit, dusty feel a bit. Decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
