On tap @ the Elephant & Castle, Boston, MA

Aged copper colour with a very mild chill haze, creamy tiny bubbled lace sticks well to the sides of the glass. Big buttery, fruity and hop aromas. Very smooth with a moderate carboantion and slightly chewy mouth feel. Flavours of buttery diacetyl, ripe fruit, malt sweetness push up against a stright-up hop bitterness that does a good job of keeping things in balance. Finishes with a lingering steely caramel malt sweetness and faint buttery tones.

A damn fine ale and I am very glad to find a place that has it on tap.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap @ the Elephant & Castle, Boston, MA ...

Bright copper in colour with a thin, laced, tight and creamy white head.

Smooth upfront with a semi-coarse leafy hop feel. Dry and astringent characters follow. This bitter is slightly malty (more so as it warms) with wood, bitter tea flavours and a background fruity flavour. The wood flavours embed themselves in the roof of the mouth, along with notes of earth. Thin tea-like floral finish.

A tasty and traditional bitter that would also make for a nice session beer. Nice find on tap.

Massachusetts

3.98/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 500ml (1pt 0.9fl oz) English brown bottle.

Appearance: Tawny, hazy orange with a thin off-white lace.

Smell: Mildly fruity and some hop in the nose.

Taste: Nice mellow malty palate with a building bitter sharpness that is amplified by the brews carbonation. Finishes slightly salty with a tea-like hops flavour. Really dry brew, all the way through.

Notes: An really nice bitter. True to style ... we almost forgot what a real English bitter tasted like.

Serving type: bottle
