Cask conditioned Imperial pint from the BRIDGE Bar and Eating House in Terminal 3 at Heathrow Airport in London.
Deep amber, mahogany color with very little head. Just a small off white ring around the top.
Smells of rich maltiness, brown bread, and a faint aroma of some hops.
Bitter, rich with caramel, some roasted, and grainy malts. Subtle bread or toast flavor as well.
Medium bodied with decent mouth coating. A bit flat, even for being casked.
A great example of an English cask ale. Not familiar in many of the beers I drink at home so it was a nice experience to try this.
Serving type: cask

A - Clear dark brown with red highlights. A short, tan/light brown head that leaves a continuous lace.
S - Lot's of roasty malt and neutral hops.
T - Taste follows the nose plus a bit of chocolate toward the back.
M - Thin and finishes a bit dry. Carbonation is just right for the style.
O - Very good. This is definitely a brown and certainly not an ESB of any sort, by the way. Not a Sam Smith Nut Brown or Fuller's 1845, but darned good. It really lacks the body that I expect from a well-made northern brown. And, as reviewed, it's a bit too dry- which may be due to the lack of body..
