A 500ml bottle with a BB of Nov 2018. Purchased a little while back from M&S. Described on the label as a balanced amber session beer; hopped with Brewers Gold.

A: Poured into a pint mug. A deep amber hue with faint haze and plentiful carbonation. Produces a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Nice lacing.

S: Aroma of grainy malt with hints of mild barley sugar, a touch of caramel, ale yeast, hay and subtle leafiness. Traditional and balanced.

T: Tastes of grainy malt with notes of barley sugar, mild caramel, ale yeast, subtle earthiness, hay, faint herbs and leafiness. Pretty dry, followed by a moderate hoppy bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with fizzy carbonation and decent body for the strength. Somewhat astringent; dries the palate. Aftertaste of bitter stewed hops, leafiness, grainy malt and ale yeast.

O: A balanced, traditional bitter that won't frighten the horses. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are a mix of grainy malt, leafy hops and ale yeast. Body is OK. Well put together but not terribly exciting. Would be fine on a warm day. Worth trying.

Cask at the Cricketers, Kew Green. Pours quite cloudy at first but ultimately settles down with a good body, though it lacks flavour, ultimately coming across as a bit of a slimy bitter.
