...I am not yet of Percy's mind, the
Hotspur of the north; he that kills me some six or
seven dozen of Scots at a breakfast, washes his
hands, and says to his wife 'Fie upon this quiet
life! I want work.' - Shakespeare, 1st Henry IV, II.iv
Gravity halfpint at the London Drinker festival.
A: Crystal clear chestnut body topped by a finger of fine tan froth. Good retention for a gravity pour, and some lace as well. Very nice indeed.
S: Caramel malt and resinous hops, with the latter coming through more with each sniff. Pleasantly balanced.
T: Follows the nose: herbal hops up front, with lots of sweet malts following behind. Long bittersweet finish. Very tasty.
M: Light and smooth; very low carbonation.
O: Quite a nice bitter - it's quite flavorful, delivering classic English flavors on both the malt and hop sides of the spectrum.
Serving type: cask

Served from the cask into an imperial pint glass in London, England. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours a one finger head which is thin, devoid of cream, and of bad retention. Another casualty of the recklessness of Camra's misguided movement. Semitransparent copper colour. Appealing in a general sense.
Sm: Caramel, cream, and slight bittering hops. A mild strength aroma.
T: Caramel, cask watery notes, and nasty bittering hops that feel out of place. Simple, crap build, and ruined balance on part of the bittering hops.
Mf: Smooth and wet. Not complementary of the flavours at all. The coarseness of the bittering hops is unwelcome and forced.
Dr: It'd probably be better on draught. The bittering hops are wretched, making it difficult to drink. It's expensive to boot. Every CAMRA member should have to drink this once to realize not every beer is better merely by being served on cask.
