BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle with a best before Date of Dec 2008, drank May 2008. Poured into a Forbidden Fruit chalice glass. Terracotta red colour with a wispy white trace of a head. Toffee Apples came to mind as the aroma arrived at my nose, this was sweet smelling stuff. The taste reminded me of Batemans XXXB, one of my favourite beers. Well balanced and full of all the good things an English Bitter should possess, a hop, malt mix with a medium mouthfeel. I thought this one of the better bottled beers on the British market at the moment.

Slightly soapy but strongly flowery and spiced nose. Pours ruby/copper with a persistant beige head. Good nutty malt balanced with a strongly dry hoppy bitterness in the flavour consistently from start to lingering, dry finish

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2008
Bottled, 500ml, pasterised. Reddish amber with white head. Full and warming bitter, relatively dry and hoppy but with a background sweetish fruitiness. Some roasted notes, pretty reasonable.

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle. Clear, deep amber with a big yellowish head. Good fruity and grassy hop nose with hints of caramel. Grassy bitterness dominates the sweet, fruity malts. Quite alright.
