Bottle @ home. Pours golden with a big white head. Citrus fruits, pineapple to the front. Nice enough, nothing great.
Wow. I’ve never had the Boddington’s in cask when it was supposed to be good, but this is a classic. A very distinctive dry, hoppy beer with a very dry finish. Drinking this helped me understand the distinctive Northern pale bitter style, different from both the traditional Southern bitters and the new but pale and hoppy golden ales.

From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours intense gold with looots of white fluffy foam. Took several attempts to draft it. Aroma is a very nice mix of citrus and floral, scarcely persistent. It becomes more herbaceous over time. Body is medium-dense. Taste is markedly bitter. Final is long and bitter, herbaceous. BaroneBirra (461) - Gorizia, ITALY - MAY 19, 2017

A traditional bitter that is smooth and quaffable with the hint of an exotic hop but not too much. Had this at the Marble Arch Manchester and was very impressed with this new take on a traditional flavour. ThreeCats (900) - ISRAEL - OCT 27, 2016
Clear copperish-brown with creamy head. Aroma of light caramel and fruity esters, with herbal notes. Taste nutty, light caramel, some bitterness. Simple with a bit of a rough edge, kinda like it’s namesake. cadilhac (41) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2016
End of a cask at 57, Manchester. Opaque brownish, aroma of peach, Jasmin, yogurt. Moving. Taste that makes me think of a barley wine, with some thick slick sugar.
