A rich aroma of hops and malt develops a full texture in the mouth. It has a long, deep, bitter-sweet finish. Without doubt an exceptional best bitter.

Bottles from Sainsburys. Light copper colour with an off-white head. Decent carbonation, with mid range head retention, but good lacing. Slight metallic twang, certainly not unpalatable. Well rounded bitterness and a dry aftertaste. Would quite like to find a cask example for comparison. Reasonably nice beer, could easilly drink more than one.

Bottle from Sainsburys in Folkestone. Pours out in a deep amber colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of bitter hops with hints of pine and barley. Taste of bitter hops, barley, green nuts, light malt, straw and torf. Easy drinkable with being refreshing. Nice beer.

MichaelAwesome (4053) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2014
Eine feine Abwechslung von Nuessen und Malz mit ein wenig an Hopfen zu Beginn. Feine ausbalanciert mit ein wenig Gras und einem feinherben, bitteren Ende. Nicht schlecht.
