This golden, light-bodied, easy-drinking “session beer” may weigh in at 4.2% ABV, but it’s no entry-level puff beer. It is a classic English Bitter called “one of the best beers brewed in the USA in the last 20 years” by Duncan Ward Deputy Head Steward of the Great British Beer Festival.

Not bad. On tap at brewery. Straw yellow. Decent bitterness, but a little too much emphasis on hops in this one.

Very mild hazy golden color. Very little aroma, perhaps a small lemon peel aspect. A slight creaminess on the palate with a subtle bitter finish.

deyholla (9265) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a hazy gold with a thin white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had light pine notes with accompanying grass and floral notes. Flavor was a bit more bitter with pine hops with grass and hay underlying.

En arbor brewery. Todas las cervezas tienen un toque ingles (UK) notable. Esta es muy tipica estilo de los hooligans

This poured an amber color with a big white head, Aroma was very mild, light toasted malts and not much else. Flavor was very bland tool, light roasted malts and very watery.

Draft @ Arbor Brew Co. First beer with fish & chips meal. This newbie’s first ever bitter style. Very similar taste to my IPA experience (hoppy), yet different. Malt balancing hops? I would have enjoyed another, but wanted to sample other offerings.

light brown with large white head. some bitterness before a lot of citrusy and grassy english hops, lmild crystal malt presence. overall, a good version of the style, maybe a little heavy on the hop flavor for the style, but very enjoyable

Draft at brewpub. Pours golden amber with a retentive off white head. Fruity ale ester and wet grain aroma. Lighter side of medium bodied with soft carbonation. Flavor or toffee and caramel accented by a balancing dose of European hops. Very characteristic of UK bitters. Enjoyable
