Slightly hazy, pale amber body with a medium white head. Moderate aroma of baker's yeast, caramel, and fruits. Moderate flavour of caramel and light fruits, a touch of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Decent mouthfeel (i.e. not too watery), very soft carbonation. Goes well with a round of pub quiz.

[Half pint from cask @ The Brewery Tap, Abingdon, UK]

Thanks Megan!
Bottle to English pint glass, the appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a sly cap of a little white foaminess. Mild lace.
The aroma had some sweet to bitter floral hop portions playing with an earthy to biscuity sweet and spicy malt. Light toast and a little bit of dried driftwood.
The flavor was florally dry sweet flowing through the normal expected biscuity maltiness of the style and guiding on into the finish as expected. Expected but acceptable diacetyl.
The palate was between light and medium bodied with a good sessionable quality about it. Low carbonation. ABV felt fairly close.
Overall, pretty good Bitter that I could have again if I could get it.

2016 catch up - Bottle at home - This was a very well made light bitter and I really enjoyed drinking it. Malt, light bitter hops and a really good mouthfeel all with a low alcohol. What’s not to like!!

Bottle. Bronze with a clear appearance.Lovely sharp bitter flavour with maltiness in background. Plenty of flavour for such a low strength beer. Shows that alll bitters are not boring. My first from this brewery.

BlackHaddock (7742) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Cask, hand-pulled half pint in the Barley Mow, Portsmouth: lunchtime on 12th March 2017. Golden amber body, full white head. Got ’Cinder Toffee’ in my head and decided this beer smelled and tasted of it. Really liked it too!

SaintMatty (7555) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2017
Cask (Alehouse, Reading) - Dark amber in colour. Nuts and biscuity malt in the aroma. Nutty and slightly roasted taste with chestnuts, toffee and a hint of cocoa. A tasty bitter.

13/19/16 bottle at home. Stonking session bitter. Just like an old Berkshire ale should be. If I'm being picky, hops just beat up the malt. But still a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Cask at Dean Swift, Tower Bridge, London, 23 April 2016) Amber colour with creamy, beige head. Malty nose with caramel, bread and toffee. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of caramel, toast, citrus and a balanced, slightly metallic bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Well balanced bitter. Quite nice.
