3.9/5 rDev -7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Served in a cool Timothy Taylor pint glass with a handle. Appearance is a deep gold color with a thin head. Mild carbonation but nice lacing Is present on the glass. Smell is somewhat generic - typical bitter with some hops present. Taste reveals a stronger hop taste almost leaning towards a nice pale ale vs a bitter. Definitely sessionable and a nice experience.
Serving type: on-tap

3.7/5 rDev -12.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Served in a half-pint glass.
A: Thin and gold. Clear with some creamy head. Boring.
S: Creamy, sourish soft lemons.
T: Deliciously creamy with really nice hops in the background. Expertly balanced. Pleasant mainbody bitterness extends to the lightly drying aftertaste.
M: Nothing special -- moderately substantial, nicely creamy, and dryingly hopped.
O: Eminently drinkable and the epitome of English cask beer. Recommended (more or less).
Serving type: cask

4.18/5 rDev -0.7%

A: Pours a clear light copper/orange color. A two finger, tightly packed white head forms with good retention. Sticky lace is left behind. Looks like a damn good bitter.
S: Sweet malt, slightly fruity, with a lingering hoppy floral aroma.
T: Sweet malt with a nice fruity flavor up front. Apples and pears are what I get. A lingering floral hoppy flavor with some bitterness.
M/D: A medium body that is low on the carbonation. Not watery at all. So smooth and creamy. This is a session beer. Really easy to drink. I can drink this all day.
I finally get to experience cask beer in the UK. This is an excellent bitter throughout. A perfect example of what the style should be and why the mass market nitro beers are so inferior in the states. Highly recommended.
