On cask at Shipwrights Arms

A_Burnt copper with a nice creamy off cream head. Nice lacing.

S__light mineral notes up front followed by a nice vegetal hop aroma

T_Solid bread like character upon first sip leading to a slow growing bitterness. Notes of grass and a copper.

M_Smooth and slightly creamy with the perfect amount of carbonation for a cask ale.

O_I have had a few of these here and I have enjoyed them quite a bit. A nice easy drinking ale with a lot of flavor.

Serving type: cask

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.

Serving type: on-tap

From IBS. no BB

An atypical review.... In that this beer is without doubt initially has the least flavour of any beer that I have drunk recently. Light malts only on nose and on palate. However, it is also the first bitter out of a bottle that has just the right mouthfeel for a bitter a la off the hand pump.

So all in all a very mixed bag, however, you could truly drink it all night.

Jury out, go figure, in terms of a numbers review.

Serving type: bottle
