From a 500ml bottle.
L: Clear, amber colour with no carbonation and a thin head.
S: Faint biscuit.
T: Light, caramel malt with faint, grassy hops. Dry rather than bitter.
F: Thin body with light carbonation. Very short finish.
O: Spectacularly ordinary bitter. Not much of anything going on. Drab.

From label: “brewed in Burton Upon Trent in partnership with Molson Coors”. So not actually from Sharp’s Brewery in Cornwall. Not really the same beer at all.

On cask; this is perhaps what I am rating it higher than the average.

On cask.

Dark, cola-colored brew, with a creamy beige head.

Mild aroma: fruitcake and dark bread.

Toffee, toast, and caramel; biscuit and brown sugar; cola and prunes; restrained bitterness with slight hints of grass and pine. Malt focused; a touch sweet, but fairly balanced.

Smooth, very drinkable.

Cask at The Sanderling, Glasgow Airport, Scotland

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high frothy white head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of toasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has a bit stronger flavors of toasted malts along with faint hints of fruity yeast and a light amount of bitterness from the hops.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodies on the palate and is a little thin and smooth with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and is perfectly sessionable.

Serving type: cask

Pint on tap (cask) served in a shaker pint glass at The Carpenter's Arms in Windsor.

Appearance: Bright amber, tinting toward dark. Thick white head and lots of persistent lacing in thick sheets.

Smell: Very little aroma, maybe a bit of toasted malt.

Taste: Mild. Toasted malt, hint of caramel. Steely/English hop bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a bit thicker than water, but not my much. A bit chewy.

Overall / Drinkability: Tasty, but mild. Nothing special. Went well with food (grilled chicken, salad, and fries). Finished it off easily but I think I'd get something else next time. Good looking beer though.
