Gloriously rich golden in colour and with a wonderful mown grass aroma, this premium bitter is full of complex flavours including a tiny amount of caramel. The addition of American hops gives it a full hop flavour with a dry finish.

This was really good, I hadn’t looked it up before I ordered it and was so pleased with it. Grassy aroma but a lovely bitter taste with plenty of malt.

mr_h (4784) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Cask by hand-pump at Bon Accord, Glasgow - clear golden amber, thin off-white head, minimal pale malty aroma, nice film of lacing, sweet, grainy, oaty, hint of caramel, bit bland, very easy to drink

Cask, 1/3 pint at GBBF 13, day 1. Clear golden body. Shiny naked surface. Aromas of grassy hops joined by malty sweetness. Leafy hops and caramel flavours leading to a dry, bittersweet ending. Decent, well blended Brit bitter (London Olympia 13.08.2013).

prawlie (1500) - ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Half pint at the Great British Beer Festival 2013. Clear golden with a short head. Fair hoppy aroma. Smooth, lightly bitter, smooth enough. Little bit boring though.

VsXsV (3955) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber liquid with medium white head. Aroma of flowers, earth, bread, biscuit, toast and cardboard. Tired. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of bread, earth and biscuit. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice but too old.

smooth mouthfeel, average standard pale ale that offers nothing memorable. Good balance of malt/hops.

brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - FEB 17, 2013
(cask) Light amber colour, almost clear, with a frothy, mostly lasting white head with far lacing. Aroma has toasted,nutty and caramel notes from the malts and very strong aromatic hoppiness with herbs, grass, moss. Some honey and brown sugar as well. Taste is lightly sweet with light to moderate bitterness. Light to medium body, smooth texture, soft carbonation and lightly astringent finish. Over all a very well-made aromatic ale. Not hugely exciting, but really an excellent bitter.

BeerViking (4192) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2012
Cask at the Bull Inn in Chichester, light brown with lacy white head, sweetish malt aroma with orange notes, bittersweet and malty with a crisp tang. Very nice.

Vignale (3366) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2011
Uncommonly bitter and hoppy for an english bitter. Lots of zesty grass and dandelion tones and bitterness a long with a bit of citrus. Dry, fresh and bitter. Cask at Greatham Inn East Hampshire.
