Cask. Pours clear amber with a medium, bubbly off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is pear and apple fruity esters, earthy and minty hops with cereal malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Cask at the source. Deep golden amber color, fluffy white head with good retention. Aroma of peppery caramel. Taste is similar. Nice.

dmac (3990) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2011
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.

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.

HoppityHop (171) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 19, 2007
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.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2007
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.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 16, 2006
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.
