Borefts Beer Festival IV. Day 2 (warm up tasting in Jan & Charlotte’s room). Light haze on this amber beer, tidy off white head. Light dry palate, crispy. Usual English bitter fayre - some orange in the bitter hops. Inoffensive but do we really need another bland English Bitter adding to the vast masses we already have?

Bottle from Ambleside Wines. Pours a crystal clear mid-brown with a generous head. Aroma is sweet treacle hops but bitterness dominates the taste. A long, dry finish with a hint of brown sugar at the end. Nice balance. Palate a little watery due to the low ABV but still a good, drinkable bitter.
