Buckingham Brewery Bitter (4%)

Immediately disappointing as this bottle conditioned beer poured flat and lifeless into my glass.
A feint trace of fizz worked its way up the beer as it sat in front of me, but I’m afraid I’m a man who likes at least some head (pardon the expression).
The colour, a deep and rich redwood, is lovely and the flavours are very good indeed.
Burned sugar and wood smoke, liquorice and just the merest hint of stewed fruits before a good dose of bitterness from the hops that moves into a long floral and very crisp finish.
Such a shame about the feel of the beer on your tongue – it’s just so flat.
