3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a good looking orange body with a fluffy mostly white head. Aroma was lousy and weak, barely detectable aroma of grains and vomit, yuck. Flavor was dry with notes of lots of ceral and grains along with a touch of chocolate. Body was medium with strong carbonation. Meh, it was okay but nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask Conditioned - Poured muddy copper with a fairly large small bubbled white head. The head quickly dissappears to a small white lacing. The aroma was warm and a bit orangy. The flavor was much of the same - not as bitter as I would have liked and not as good as the ESB’s that I love.

I thought that this was Bitting’s best offering at the Split Rock beerfest. And it was that great. But is was decent and easy to drink.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden amber, with a small white head and almost no lacing. It looks nothing like a true English bitter, and the aroma and flavor was more along the lines of a pale...and a weak one, at that. Not hoppy, not malty, not horrible, but not impressed.

This was an okay beer. I had this at the Split Rock Beer Festival 2007. Not something to remarkable, but okay.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask. Pours a slihgtly cloudy deep muddy copper with a thin lasting head and very fine cobweb lacing. Aroma is fruity, light yeast, some herbla and tea-hops- very english like with a light toasty malt backbone. Smooth flavor- light bready malts, yeast, fruity esters- becomes a bit muddled, but finishes pretty smooth.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at brewpub. Pours pale golden amber with lacing off white head. Orange and caramel aroma, but faint. British Caramel and toffee malt flavor, finished by a mild bitterness. Even for a bitter, this was tad thin. Plus this lacked the earthiness of a true bitter. Still respectable in my book.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask... Poured a golden color with a large, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of diactyl, toasted dough, toffee, and light citrus. Taste of citrus, toffee, grains, and more diactyl. Somewhat disappointing.
