Nose
Plenty of firm, earthy hop presence, well supported by malt with a touch of toffee.
Palate
Robust and hoppy. The hops are not particularly floral or fruity, but present an earthy, leafy bitterness to overshadow the rather timid malt that adds just a little sweetness.
Finish
Dry, with a firm hop character that is neither cloying nor too intense.
Comment
A good, unfussy, hoppy British best bitter, light amber in colour: clean, interesting and, most importantly, eminently drinkable.
