3.58/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Orange brown in color, clear with tanned foam - a nice bitter look overall. The nose is clean, faintly sweet with a mild herbal tint.

Flavor again is inoffensive and mild but unspectacular. Clean and mildly sweet, herbal finish with a bit of buttery toffee. Body is thin, slightly metallic, and finishes very clean.

Nothing spectacular and not worth seeking out but solidly British bitter.

Virginia

4.13/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a deep, ruddy brown with a nice creamy off-white head. The head has great retention and leaves nice lacing. The aroma is deep and rich malt, with hints of dark fruit and a faint earthy whiff. The taste follows in line, with a delicious malt forward flavor and a subtle hint of hops to round it out. The beer's body weight is perfect, not too heavy or thin and it has a smooth finish. A great pint of bitter. If you're in England, always good on cask.
