COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
Our first beer and we have high hopes that one day our pump clip will become as recognisable around Windsor as the Guards bearskin hats that the design it is based upon. Guardsman Best Bitter is a copper-coloured session strength ale with a tangy taste, smoothed by oak conditioning and a really fresh hop. It is brewed with premium Maris Otter pale malt and a blend of Pilgrim, Styrian Golding and Fuggles hops.

(Bottle) Clear amber beer with a decent off-white head. Caramel aroma. An almost sour fruit flavour along with a blend of malt and hop, and followed by a mostly hoppy dry finish. Its a pity theres not more aftertaste to it. Not especially exciting but very drinkable.

ManVsBeer (8809) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2016

The_Osprey (6826) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2016
Cask HP at The William Morris Hammersmith as Windsor and Eton Guardsman. Dark orange brown, still, hazy, small foamy beige head. Aroma is light and airy, some lavender soap and simple sugars. Body is smooth, light with tingly carbonation. Taste is fairly light and watery, sodawater, thin bready malts, tangy drying flowery hops. From the colour of this youd assume plenty of supporting malt, but its a bit lacking in the malt department. Quite a decent hop presence but watery and lacking a little oomph. Alright and drinkable, but not moreish.

Lite sur. Som Pedigree. Undrar om det var ett gammalt fat? Ingen favorit. Men alltid trevligt med lokal l.

Medium amber with thin lacey head and very soft carbonation. Light malty nose, bubblegum and spice. Nice malty taste with lots of biscuit, caramel, grass, quite sweet. Nice oily palate. Needs more bitterness in the finish, but overall a tasty pint.

Sigmund (6884) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 12, 2015
Cask pint at Wetherspoons, Victoria Station, London. Copper colour, low off-white head. Moderate aroma, malts, toffee and a hint of fruity hops. Pleasant flavour, decent hops with a hint of blackcurrants, malty and nutty notes too. Good beer.
