3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Clear brown amber color with a fine off white head that leaves a nice lacing.
Aroma: Malty, vanilla, fruity and mild hoppy.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet and a fine bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Fruity, malty and a fine hoppy background.
Overall impression: I really enjoy British premium bitter from bottles. A higher carbonation lifts the beer up a bit.
Personal stats: Bottle from Spar at Stansted Airport in Essex, England.

An excellent English Bitter. A cautionary note to hopheads: English Bitters balance hops and malt and therefore will not be bitter enough for you. For you I suggest putting a pine tree in a juicer and then adding the liquid to this beer.

500ml bottle. Pours a clear brownish red. Aroma is malted, slightly of twiglets and a little smoky. Taste is pretty good - again, slightly smoky. Hops come through with a bitter after taste. Medium carbonation.
Comment down there
from Imaena amuses me. What do you expect from going in Tesco? Shame a massive supermarket doesn’t consult the all knowing oracle that is ratebeer to only stock beers that rate over 95...

Dark pale ales throw me still...but this does have a decent dark taste to it. tastes stronger than its gravity.
