Dark-ish copper with a thin cream coloured head that leaves lacy chunks floating on top. Pleasant, if somewhat typical malt profile with a reasonable, light fruity hop character.

Mild biscuity malts and very light toffee hints. Subdued hops. It tastes good, but doesn't wow me. Decent carbonation - what really makes this enjoyable is the fact that it is a low ABV bitter a very easy to drink - a true session beer for sure.

On cask at the Blue Ship in the Haven, Rudgwick, West Sussex.

Poured with no head whatsoever, but a beautiful reddish brown beer was in the glass.

Smells of malts and grains. More or less typical English bitter smell but with some minor hints of caramel.

Tastes very solid and consistent--nothing out of the ordinary here.

Mouthfeel is just okay--very little carbonation or anything to it. A slightly thick, subtle syrupy-ness is present, but it's very subtle.

Drinkability is slightly above average b/c overall it's a nice drink in spite of its shortcomings.
