Bottle @ tasting shared by Inoven. Nice clear light amber color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, soft caramel notes, malt bitter, bitter. Decent body and carbonation. Lacks depth although I guess that’s not really what was intended with this beer. Ok.

Draught (White Horse, Oxford)
Citrussy hops in the aroma, fruity and sweet from the malts. Soft palate, carbonation low. Pretty unexceptional pale bitter, but does have some character, not dumbed down or mediocre. Lovely citrussy finish, but with a wooly bitterness too. Nice one.

Brakspear Bitter (Bottle)
A proper, flavoursome English bitter. A low abv that seems at odds with the nice, rich flavour of malt and the bitterness of hops. This is one hell of a session beer and I really enjoyed it.
