I had this on tap at the brewery January 19, 2013.

Pours a hazy orange brown, but it clears some as the bubbles from the pull rise. There's about one finger head. Aroma is a subtle caramel and bread. Taste is caramel, hops, and nutty with a very slight spiced finish. Mouthfeel is a light body as well as light carbonation. Overall, not as good as the Extra Special Bitter, but a good drink none the less in my opinion.

Had this on 2012-01-14 in Lititz, PA at the Bull's Head Public House for which, this beer was made.

A - Starts as a hazy orange-brown but it clears some as the bubbles from the pull rise. There's a 1-finger head.

S - Home baked bread but not much else that I could discern although the food smells in the pub may have masked other subtleties.

T - Nutty, caramel, savory, noble hops(?), moderately bitter. Dries nicely.

M - Light-medium body and light carbonation. Smooth and moderately creamy.

O - It's probably just the right thing to have a sessionable English Bitter on-cask at this traditional English pub. It's not my favorite beer style but was glad for the chance to give it a try.
