look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

This is a good english bitter, but not the best. It's a little safe, to be honest. It's hoppy but could be more so, a little watery. It feels nice though, and goes down smooth and refreshing. British ale is just plain good, so an average one will still be worth drinking. Smells malty and grassy, but not too strong. With the low alcohol it makes a great beer to drink tons of. Worth getting, just a little on the safe side.

Serving type: on-tap

Clear amber with a slightly soapy cap, spotty lacing. Solid head retention, though it didn't start with much. Floral and earthy nose, malty aroma, quite nice. Balanced bitterness countered the malts and hop character. Medium to light bodied, low carbonation. A good pint, very balanced and drinkable.

3.49/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pale coppery gold. Disappointing head. Flopsy bubble ring adorns a popping top.

Dry herbal hop-snap with grassy malts and pomme esters, a la Fullers. Biscuity aromas with buttery notes.

Semi-crisp, lightly fruity, musty, grassy, and light. Herbal hop, pale grains, husks, pomme must, and pared-down toast.

Light and totally sessionable. Carbonation is lacking. Wish this was on nitro.

Was expecting better from Fullers. Still an enjoyable bitter.

(on tap at Victoria Freehouse - served in a proper 20oz pint)

A: light copper color, clear... bit of frothy foam on the pour, but little-no retention, not even a thin cap or film... boring

S: aromas are ultra-faint, not enough alcohol to carry them? - the glass doesn't help either - even warm, I couldn't get much... what you do get is a bit of a mineral, mild leafy scent (scant esters + hops).... also, some lightly-toasted dinner roll

T: the flavors pop a good bit more.... certain mineral bitterness throughout, at a comfortable yet lively level.... pleasing, slow swell of light caramel in the finish... extremely clean overall - apple-y esters are showcased with a soft, subtle grassy-grainy malt in the background... about what I expected, at the least

M: bright, crisp, and clean... only a smidge of roundness in the body... thankfully, not spritzy or fuzzy - they set the pressure right on!.... very refreshing, if a little filling, volume-wise

O: I could almost tell in a blind taste test that this was the Fuller's yeast... the flavors are on-point but perhaps a bit more subtle than I would have expected... I could drink a couple of these, but I'd likely opt for something with a bit more dimension
