500ml bottle. Pours a clear red-amber, with a medium head. Smells like a classic bitter, with a whiff of citrus and some toffee malt notes. Moderate citrus and pine hops start it off, followed by lemon and honey, with a burnt caramel finish. A nice, complex, yet eminently drinkable bitter.

Good looking beer. Lots of caramel & floral aromas. Toffee caramel malts outweigh the fruity floral hops though. Pretty good English Bitter.

Fresh fragrance with mild hops aroma and soft and sweet tons of malt. Flavor is malty with aromatic hops. Short vague hop bitter aftertaste. Fairly thin and bland!

Bottle 500ml. Brown/copper color, small head. Hoppy nose, some fruits, a bit spicy. Soft, malty mouthfeel. Overall quite hoppy and a long, bitter aftertaste. Not bad for a bitter, but a little disappointing for me.

Well shoot me with a rusty shotgun... this is actually excellent. Smells like beer (rather than fizz which is usually what bottled beer smell of). Great toasty flavour. Good body and good finish. Just a good beer, a proper brown bitter.

500ml bottle. Pours amber with a coat of a beige head. Low bead. Smells of toffee, apples, pears, spices, flowers. Quite malty and sweet with some fruit but mostly buttery toffee. Good balancing bitterness. Has that somewhat lifeless feel common to bottled bitters. Is also a bit heavy for my tastes in this style. Still, a fair drop.

500ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma is dried fruit and carmale malt. Taste is quite yeasty, considering this isn’t bottle conditioned. Some fruit as well, with a medium bitter finish. Good body for the alcohol content. Really nice.
