Apparently one of the most popular bitters in the uk.

Golden Amber, clear with minimal head that disappears quickly.

Nice subtle hint of brown sugar and cigar smoke. Not a lot here.

Flavour is dry up front, phenolic sweet and a touch cloying through the middle. Finishes tart and a touch sweet. Not offensive, not real real crash hot either.

Malt is thin, carb is non existent. Quite astringent.

Sweetish, thin and flat so easy to slam if you're into that. May explain it's popularity.

Pours a finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is wood, dark grains and a little plum.
The taste is wood, mild fruit and lemon bitterness.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
Enjoyable.

It had a great color of a cask ale, maroon, transparent, but not watery, decent head. I was looking forward to it, but when i drank it....it had almost no flavor whatsoever. It was watery, had no real personality, reminded me of dishwater almost. Should've gotten a Stella instead.
