Great British Beer Festival 2008, Earl's Court, Central London

IanGood07 Aug 2008 Clear copper, thin off white head. Frankly, a pretty tasteless bitter is what I first thought. Some subtle yeast malt and hop. Nothing wrong with it. The hop on the finish does get better. I can see people drinking pints of this in their local and loving it. Easy drinking with enough hop to keep you interested.

Longville Arms, Longville in the Dale, Shropshire
