A dark yellow colored liquid with asmall white head. Thre was a light sweet aroma with a hint of, I think, apples. The sweetness an hint of apple starts of the taste at the tip of the tongue. The finish was a good even bitterness though the end. Again a interesting session pub draft.

Very light amber. Not much in the way of lacings.

Fruity on the nose, leans towards apricots.

Pretty juicy malt, standard fruity malt flavours throughout. Bit buttery. Hops add a certain citrus touch to the finish.

A pretty run-of-the-mill bitter, there are better, there are worse.

This bitter is not as good as the Old Pec'. Bitters take a bit of getting used to drinking in England, but once you do, this is one of the decent ones. The color is not bad but the overall flavor could be better.

Pretty ordinary stuff, grainy thin-ness, some light citric hops, watery limp palate, some bitterness, which makes up for the rest, watery, non-eventful finish. Not the worst bitter, but certainly not great. Had it cask at some pub in Wimbledon, London.
