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.
