UPDATED: JUN 8, 2015 This is a traditional bitter. Not bad. Not too tasty. Not my favourite style.

Had this many times. Hops are somewhat underwelming and there is some fruit and pepper but structurally yhis beer needs some scaffolding and disinction.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle from Sobeys Liquor, served in a nonic pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy orange-copper shade with mousse-like foam that retains well and leaves thick lace rings. Nose is heavy with toasty malt and earthy, dusty red fruit, somewhat winey. Mmmmm...taste-wise, there’s dense malt toast topped with wine-like fruits, and the earthiness isn’t as noticeable. A wee bit thick, with a soft bitterness and a pleasant finish. This is a damn good bitter, one I’d be happy to drink all day. It knows what aromas and flavors to present, and does not disappoint. Top me up!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a sparkling dark amber with an average off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, light flowery hops, spices and yeast. Appearance and aroma are nice so you expect pretty good things from the taste but unfortunately it’s a disappointment. The taste is slightly bitter and average but the aftertaste is quite unpleasant and the palate is too harsh. A mediocre ale.

belle couleur ambrée, cuivrée limpide ,mousse blanche et bulles abondantes,inhabituel pour une ale anglaise. Nez de houbons herbeux et de caramel je dirai (mais le mien est bouché...). Bouche sur les houblons herbeux et epices, amertume soutenue mais tres agréable. bonne carbo, corps leger.Bonne ale anglaise !

Caramel colour. Lot of carbonation. Quite bitter. As bottled goes not bad. Good for barbecue. Okay.

March Ale Alpharetta. Caramel notes, floral hops, fruity. Overall nothing special, but really quite drinkable and nice at the same time. I haven’t had a bitter in a long time and this was a nice change of pace.
