Coming in a 500ml brown bottle, not bottle-conditioned; BB 25/01/2012, served cool in a straight imperial pint glass. Notes: according to the front label, this beer (supposedly the cask-conditioned version) was elected as the Beer of the Festival at the 2005 and 2008 Chippenham CAMRA Beer Festival.

A: pours a dark amber to light copper hue, good clarity, coupled with a very thin white foamy head and moderate carbonation.
S: caramel malts dominate the nose, laced with slightly grassy and earthy hop aroma, random notes of sweet citrus fruits and thick-ish melted barley candy. Smelling quite sweet, to be honest,
T: very light in carbonation, the refreshing swallow is full of quality English pale malts and cara-malts yet understated in flavour, while hops make a decent impact on the depth by lending a long and lubricating flow of herbal+tea-ish bitterness with a lovely touch of saltiness in the aftertaste. A dry-ish and pleasantly chewy finish has sourness and bitterness sitting 50-50 harmoniously.
M&D: softly carbonated, this bottled version has the level of carbonation almost like that of a cask; this medium-bodied Best Bitter tastes clean, moderately bitter with a certain level of depth. I would imagine the cask version to be fairly good, for a traditional bitter that is full of malts yet balanced by a bitter and dry-ish finish. A thirst quencher all in all.

A beer honouring the work of Brunel is good in my books. Served via a handpump at the delightful Fleece Inn in Bretforton.

Pours a light amber with a finger ow white head that left some lace before settling to a film. Subtle, grainy aroma, with hints at fruit. Perhaps a little underplayed here. the flavour is decent enough and would make for a good session. Base of biscuit and toffee with tea hopping. Bitterness is present, but fairly light. Medium-light body and restrained carbonation due to the cask pour.

A decent beer, but I'm not sure I would go back to it - there are far to many British beers that are almost carbon copies of this.
