Lunch-time hand pulled pint in ‘The White Hart’, Shifnal on 20th June 2012.
Light amber body with a creamy off-white head that produced some good lacing.
Weak flavours from the start, more malts than hops in my opinion and not a lot of maltiness either: aroma was only slight hop/malt/yeast esters, the taste just a hint of beery ingredients. Leaning towards boring!

Served in a straight wall UK pint glass at the Kings Head Inn in Salisbury, UK.
Appearance: Copper clear beer with thick creamy white foam. The foam does down after awhile to a thin persistent foam across the top. Thin streams of lacing all over the glass.
Smell: Sweet malt with some bready tones...almost a hint of cupcake when first poured, but mellows out as it warms up. Very appealing. The hops are mild in this - just a hint of them in there.
Taste: Very well balanced - perfect blend between hop bitterness at the end and smooth malt at the beginning. Very nice.
Mouthfeel: Shortly after pouring, just a hint of carbonation on the tongue, but it goes away quickly and leaves a beer with a juice-like consistency. Smooth and thick enough to be notable.
Drinkability: Went fantastic with a meal - for a single hopped beer, this one is very well balanced and at 5%ABV, is incredibly drinkable. I can easily see myself having another pint of this, and I noted that quite a few around the bar were having this one as well. An overall solid good beer.
