jmgreenuk (9119) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 14, 2017
Cask from JDW Birmingham Airport. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is sweet malt, light hop. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a smooth fruity malt, light toffee, hop bitter palate and a moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A decent session ale.

Cask at The Crosse Keys, Gracechurch St, London. Pours clear deep golden with a lasting white head. Aroma of hop, butter, lightly floral. Quite heavy sweetness and mild bitterness. Toward medium body and some stickiness to texture, carbonation is soft. Ok but too much butter.

braystacey (9) - - JUL 7, 2015 does not count
Solid best bitter. Slight malty twang, good levels of bitterness and very little hop character in the taste and muted in the aroma. But I'm picking holes really. It's pretty decent all round. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
