This Bitter is a good middle of the road session beer. Just enough malt & hops to be drinkable but not a very complex sort of beer which fits the style nicely. No real surprises here.

Very easy going beer. Good balance of malt and hops. Goes well with a Yorkshire roast and sausages and mash.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A reddish orange appearance. Aroma is cloves, bananas, and wheat. Flavor is slightly bitter with some wheat. Seriously lacking in complexity. Fairly boring and a black sheep for sure.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper color with a frothy head. Some bubbles rise to the surface! Some hops in the aroma, and a sense of some bitterness too. Big kick of bitterness to the flavor all around. From the beginning to the end. Pretty decent taste with some malt in there. Overall a decent bitter! Compliments to the owner of the Beer Sellar for passing this brew on to me!

This has always been one of my go-to beers for an easy-drinking beer that leaves me with that lovely bitter taste afterwards. Hoppy on the nose and a lovely orange-copper colour. A little sweet in the mouth before the bitter takes over for the rest of the ride. A solid choice.

Looks great- nice orange/copper with a huge white head. Rye bread and ever so slight lemon aroma. Some citrus flavor, then a crisp and fairly assertive hop bite. Finishes strong.
