chriso (7536) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2010
Cask (handpump) at the Great British Beer Festival Day 2, August 2009. Copper colour. Some dry, slightly smoky malt. Contrary to the commercial description, I found more malt than hop. A fairly down-to-earth and not particularly attention-grabbing Best Bitter.
