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.

Ingredients: Maris Otter pale malt. Challenger and East Kent Goldings hops.

Sjohnh (248) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2014
Clear, dark amber colour with a short lived off-white head. Sweet malt aroma. Light body and a nice degree of carbonation making this drinkable and refreshing. Malt and sweet caramel flavours. Nothing earth shattering but a pleasant pint.

ogivlado (5894) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottled 500ml. -from www.beershop.hr Clear amber coloured, minimal white to off-white head, bready nose. Sweetish malty, caramel, bready and faint fruity with short finish. Pretty boring one without any real British beer character; more like some cheaper East European brew. Pitty.

Cimbasso (243) - - OCT 19, 2014
The colour is a deep copper with a white head. Sweetish roasted malt and caramel aromas. The taste is sweet, dominated by caramel, with a hint of red apples. Very full malt taste and plenty of bitterness from the Maris Otter hops. Very vivid flavours that create a well-balanced and highly drinkable amber ale.

MichaelAwesome (4574) - 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.
