MarkoNm (498) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 26, 2014
Pours a coppery/golden color, topped with a slightly dirty frothy head. A mild hoppy and grassy aroma is easily picked up. Balanced body, slightly more on the bitter side. Refreshing bittery feel in the end. Crisp. Very nice.

A good bitter. Not going to blow your skirt up, but its always cheap as chips in my local supermarket, between £1 and £1.25 usually, and great value. As good as many bottled bitters on the supermarket shelves and a good honest drink. I like it!

Bottle - Golden with a thin white head. Aroma of earth, grass and light toastyness. Taste of peach and apricot, hay, light grassy hops, medium bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation. Eh nothing exciting.

sebletitje (6641) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2014
Bouteille 50cl, BB 31/05/2014. Léger orangé, col fin blanc. Arôme au bouquet centré sur les malts, peu ressort en terme de houblons si ce n’est un bref houblonné citronné. Palais est malté anglais typique sur une pointe biscuitée, et un léger houblonné citronné de Fuggles voire EKG. Effervescence moyenne-haute avec une amertume basique pour ce style. Ok, mais sans plus.

Lets not fool ourselves, this is a quaffable ordinary bitter designed to be drunk by the gallons and as such I’ll rate it. It’s not a hop bomb and nor it is massive in alcohol, just the type of beer you’d have with a meal or pint after pint. Aroma: very light malt, dough, some faint spicey hops. Appearance: pours with half a finger of light tan head which dissipates almost immediately. It’s a light copper colour, completely clear. Carbonation is low. Taste: light malts, some distant caramel, mild but noticeable bitterness. As you drink it the caramel becomes more pronounced. There is a faint toasty note as well in there. Hops just about counteract the malts and provide a tad of fruit. I thought I tasted wet cardboard but I was wrong. Palate: medium/light body. It’s not too thin, very drinkable. The carbonation is very soft but improves the impression of body. Finish is very gentle with little aftertaste. Overall: it does what you expect for a session bitter going at £1 a bottle. It actually does it fairly well but with no surprises. Still tastes like proper beer, though.

Holmen2 (787) - NORWAY - MAY 30, 2014
Pale amber. Decent white head and lacing. Plum jam in aroma. Perhaps slightly overcarbonated. Thin mouthhfeel. Fine and well-balanced taste of a classic English bitter. Very high drinkability.

Straight forward bitter ale, happy to drink it all night, but wouldn’t be able to write home. Accompanied by Carols dips which were a true delight. See "ratedip.com"".

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle at home. Clear gold with a medium to thick bright almost white head. Aroma is quite pleasant, some caramel malt touch of hops, typically English. Flavour is similar but all round just not my thing and I didn’t like it.

MrBlueSky93 (15) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Review for TheBeerGuy. Starts with light malts, of the biscuity variety. Develops to a mid-strong bitterness. A nutty bitterness, with a slightly grassy, hay finish.
