500ml Bottle: BBD 06/2014. A Marks and Spencer beer, opened on 3rd March 2014 and poured into my Abbot Ale glass tankard. Bottled Conditioned.

No sediment left my bottle, so I got a clear amber body with a good, deep, full, off-white foaming head in my tankard.

Nutty, woody, twiggy nose, with a clean malty base in a bleached muslin sack.

The taste follows the aroma: woody, earthy and malty, but with a sterile bent (see bleached muslin above). Bitter finish to a strange 'clinical' flavoured malty brew. Who ever over-saw the bottle cleaning didn't wash out mine too well because the whole tasting seemed to be overshadowed by some sort of cleansing compound.

Anyone else thought it tasted 'clinical'?

The brew is clear light amber, many medium bubbles, an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Small curtains.

The smell is vaguely nuts, ripe apples and some grass.

Starting sweet, bread, oatmeal, some ripe apples and pears, finishing with a grassy bitterness.

Medium high carbonation, rather fresh and lively texture, medium small body, a smooth dry finish.

A nice bitter, refreshing and drinkable.

Bought from Marks and Spencers as part of their own brand revamped beer range and clearly marked Bottle Conditioned
in upper case no less!

Poured into a handled dimpled pint pot to reveal mid brownish/dark amber body with a big healthy white head.

The taste is a little of a let down with malts overriding the rather subdued hop taste which is there just not enough for a Yorkshire Bitter.
There is a hint of oatmeal coming from somewhere, probably from the roast and ending in a yeasty slightly soured yeasty taste.

great carbonation and mouthfeel coming from the bottle conditioning, this is pretty much the highlight.

Allright but nowt special like
