3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Saturated copper color with an orange tinge, The tiny light tan head never completely disappears. Moderate lacing. I love the raised hopvine motif on the bottle. Aroma is freshly-plowed fertile earth, wet wool, cranberry and green apple, fragrant hop (violets?), and the barest hint of oregano. Flavors of earthy-spicy hop bitterness, leather, bread. Light body with a thin cidery edge to it, suggesting sugar added to the boil, and somewhat tannic/sandpapery on the tongue. Moderately bitter finish with a green, peppery quality, not unlike endive or nasturtum, and slate. Interesting at first, but I started to get bored about halfway through. A little residual sweetness would help tame the earthy qualities.

Not crazy about this style, but here goes: cloudy apricot appearance, not a bad beer, just boring; very little flavor.

Copper apricot color with a mild toppin of head. Way Skunky aroma. The body consists mostly of dirt flavored leather malt. Not very good, but i dont like this style at all anyways.

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.

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!
