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.

Very punchy aroma to go with the punchy flavour. Creamy and smooth to drink. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mjs (6395) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 17, 2016
(Cask at Kitty’s, 20160317) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was small, white and it lasted long. Aroma had grass, earth and toffee. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were grass, honey, malts, toffee, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A surprisingly sweet brew and therefore not my thing.

Moebbels (706) - FINLAND - JUN 25, 2015
Clear copper body with a quickly settling head that laces the glass. Nose has lovely sweet caramel and bisquit notes. Taste starts off nutty and sweet and then ends in a hefty, lingering bitterness. Soft carbobation and medium palate. Nice simple bitter.

Cask @ The George, Backwell, Bristol. Hazy amber with a small off white head that laces nicely. Aroma is biscuity malts with a touches of dark fruits and citrus hops. Palate is light and softly carbonated with similar flavours to the nose finishing with a medium hop bitterness. Another fine English real ale.

A very ordinary bitter. Not unpleasant, but bland in taste and aroma, no real finish of note.
