500ml Bottle BBD 30 Apr 2013: poured into an Abbot Ale tankard @ home on 30 Dec 2012.

Good amber looking beer: full head of off-white foam tops it of nicely.

Malts lead the way in the aroma and taste: caramel semi-sweetness with a roasted/toasted unsweetened buicuity feel to the whole thing.

Fairly crisp and almost sharp in the mouth: the malts however ensure this is a mostly calm malty brew and Iiked it. I'd have prefered more body depth and alcohol, but as a 4% ABV Bitter I suppose you can't expect a rich, thick beer.

500ml Bottle from Home Bargains:
Reddish amber colour with a large, two-fingers tall head that is very creamy and thick looking as well as dome shaped.

Mild fruit notes and a hint of an almost metallic aroma mixed with some caramel and some sweet malts.

Light caramel malts, some sweetness and a few earthy flavours along with a touch of fruit and a biscuit taste following this. This one taste much like I was expecting but is one that tastes pretty good.

Quite light bodied and fairly smooth with moderate bitterness and a crisp, sort of dry finish that goes down well and would make an excellent session beer.

Standard tasting bitter with nothing your not expecting but it is a nice one in spite of this. The body is a little light but it is very flavoursome, especially for the relatively moderate abv. and light body.
