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.

1MrCabbage (30) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2016
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

Bottle. Golden pint with large frothy head that dissipates rapidly, medium carbonation. Hoppy, soapy nose. Light medium sweet taste with biscuit, grass, caramel and a nice slug of bitterness in the shortish finish. Fizz and slight wateriness in the palate. Nice as a light lunchtime brew.
