The color is copper and it has a small head. The aroma is of sweet with notes of caramel and fruit. The flavor is of caramel and oranges. The end is very dry and hoppy. Which all in all makes it a very nice bitter.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Ontap in the Old Dispensary, Aldgate. Inoffensive bitter. One note biscuit malt taste. Unremarkable.

bottle at home ... Nice copper ... malty toffee nose ... soft carbonation ... with a well rounded flavour ... sweet caramel tones with alight hop in linger ... this is really growing on me.
