Like Black Haddock I had the bottle and could take it or leave it, pretty much dissuaded me from drinking Dunham Massey beer.

Popped in a pub whilst waiting for a bus and saw it on cask.

Gorgeous looking pale brown body perfect cask white head.

Floral notes and hops with the aroma.

Taste is like hops smothered in salted caramel then exciting on peppery notes.

Spot on mouthfeel, great bitter.

Second beer of my 'Dunham Massey 4' tasting evening.

Brown 500ml bottle, best before August 2011, some three and half months away when tasted. the beer is bottle conditioned.

Pours a clear light amber, golden colour. The thick white head that was initially there fell away slowly to a thin wispy covering, but did leave some good lacing on the glass.

Very little aroma, as is often the case with UK bitters, some slight hop and malt esters as the beer warmed in the glass, otherwise nothing for my nose to find.

The taste was predominately of hops, but only mildly, this isn't a hoppy bitter, it just doesn't have a lot of malt flavours in the mix.

Mid-range in the body stakes for a UK bitter, neither weak or strong in anything, just a middle of the road session beer, like so many others being brewed up and down the country.
