I love bitter and cut my beer teeth in England. I find this to be as good a bitter as I got in many places there and better than others I have had here. I am a cellar temperature beer fan because freezing cold beer ruins the taste. I let this one sit for a couple of minutes after the pour into a dimpled mug and felt right at home mate. Sitting in Banbury at the Dog and Gun.

Drank some Honkers draft beer for the first time at a Baltimore baseball game and it
was excellent. Hot dog was good too.

I would of liked it in a chilled mug.....but it was served in a plastic cup....so that's why I
rated it a 4.5 instead of a 5.
