Sampled from a bottle. A copper coloured beer, with typical English Bitter characteristics. Good, toffee-ish malt and a fruity, earthy hop flavour. Very low carbonation - almost flat. An excellent bitter ideal for everyday drinking. Wonderful to find a fairly weak beer with such great flavours.

Towey1989 (2095) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2016
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of cereal, some butterscotch, a hint of dill and slight earthy hops. Taste of cereal, some butterscotch, subtle lemon, a little diacetyl and slight earthy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, slightly herbal, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. The fuggles hop comes through nicely but thats all thats good with this beer, quite bland.

Strong claim, I thought it was Sheffield Wednesday! Gravity. Cask. The Hop Beer Shop, Chelmsford, Essex. Copper-bronze appearance. White lacing which diminishes. Typically UK hop aroma. Drinks clean but very earthy. Light texture. Good use of malt. A solid bitter really. Unpretentious.

Garrold (4622) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2015
Bottle from Asda. Saves me having to go in the Fat Cat or Tap and Tankard. Pale amber colour. Fizzy head quickly disappears. Sweet malts. Bit of toffee. Trace of citrus hop, although thats pushing it. Taste is sweet with some jarring bitterness. Too fizzy. A bit thin. Not for me.

Bottle from Asda, Halifax. Golden with next to no head. Decent textured ale with a malt-hop balance and a small lingering fruitiness.

Thanks to Gavin for providing the bottle! Pours a sun-yellow color, with a small white head, leaving back a small lacing, covering the whole surface of the beer. Offers a great mix of herbacious, leafy hops and caramelized, slightly earthen malts. Its malt foundation grows more prominent than the hops are, turning a tad sweeter, with a balancing earthiness to it. Has a lower carbonation, together with an enjoyable light body. The malts shine in this without any distraction from metallic, coppery carbonation flaws, gently balanced by the hops. Tastes of hay, wheat, white bread and bready, soft malts. A fair amount of grassy, slightly herbal hops add to this convincing foundation, creating a very clean taste. During the finish, the hops turn stronger, revealing an enjoyable bitterness, which lets the malts rotate in an even earthier direction, with a subtle toffee note cutting through. Very tasty sessionable beer, whichs key player are the malts. Those feature a nice sweetness, which gets wrapped up by english hops and unusual, wood bark inspired earthiness. Almost exhibits a spiced peak, as the bitterness becomes more pronounced.
