Subtle bitterness from English Challenger hops with color and aromas from Crystal Malt give rich , rounded, biscuity flavor and deep copper color. Plus love the tap with cannon ball on it and the new pint glasses Huzzahh!

Just moved to London two days ago and this was my first pour at my first London pub. I chose it because it was the first tap staring at me in the bar and the waitress said it was a good seller.
Came in an oversized pint glass, 20 oz...gotta love the Brits with the big pint. Nice light caramel coloring and thin but dense cream head.
I got a bit of musty English hops on the nose, but really nothing to speak of.
The initial taste was a bit of vinegar and leather...followed by a more typical British bitter profile. At first I thought it was some off flavor due to the food I was eating, but subsequent tastes confirmed it just had a funky initial start. I wouldn't have been able to finish the pint except that the lasting flavor profile was okay.
Finish was actually good...at least in comparison to the start.
Overall, a very disappointing beer.
