UPDATED: SEP 29, 2017 Pours Amber. Thin white head. Head quickly disappears. Minimal carbonation. Pine, wood, light citrus. Mildly hoppy, slight sweetness. Pleasant. Decent to session at a country pub but nothing overly special.

Cask at Angleterre Helsinki. Clear golden color white head. Very subtle floralaroma. Taste is extremely subtle bitter lemon.

On cask in Mayfair, somewhere. This is as inoffensive and bland as cask beer gets. It’s serviceable and fine, but it doesn’t have the hops of a punchy pale ale or the rich Malty-ness of a proper bitter.

Tinaccio (469) - Milano, ITALY - JUN 30, 2017
On cask at Bishops Finger, Farringdon, London, UK. It pours clear amber, with a small white head. Aroma is malty, notes of citrus and pine. Taste is light sweet. Body is light, carbonation is weak. Overall nothing wonderful.

Of all the SN beers I had the pleasure to have tried at The Miller’s Arms this is pretty good. at Miller’s Arms in Canterbury

Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) on the 6th April 2017. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper in colour with a thin creamy pale buff head. Hoppy aroma has a distinct cat pee note lurking in the background. Thin resiny mouthfeel and excellent lacing. Mixed malts deliver a light digestive biscuit base with pulpy watermelon flavour present. Slight hop presence gives a light resiny aftertaste which lacks really conviction. Finish is slightly hoppy with dry rye grain and kiwi fruit evident in the mouth. Standard session bitter.,

Draft at bishops arm folkis Clear brown yellow. Aroma of honey malt, veggies Taste anis, bread, malt honey. Old

My Bottom Line:
This mineral Bitter shares shy caramel and oranges in an easygoing body.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the clear amber.
-This brewery’s mineral character (very hard water?) smells like morning dew on rocks.
-The mouthfeel still manages to be silky and engaging.
-Flavor profile is non distinct, both on the malt and hop front.

On cask at Ye Olde Pumphouse, Hastings.

Keg at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan. Slight hazy and golden with a short fluffy white head. A bit weird aroma of yogurth, butter and lemon. Taste is fairly dry with lemon, oranges, faint butter, hay and dough. Medium to light body, soft carb, soft to dry palate. Quite drinkable. But really nothing special.
