Cimbasso (772) - - OCT 19, 2016
Sampled from a bottle from Tesco.Good fruity, malty aroma. Colour is a rich copper with a quickly-fading white head. Good mouthfeel and a great taste of malts (not too sweet) and a a fruity, earthy hop taste. Good bitterness, producing autumn flavours in a glass. A really delicious classic bitter. Highly recommended.

Served in a tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours coppery colour with a medium off-white head. aroma is caramel, grass, hints of honey. Taste is biscuit, caramel, hint of honey, bitter-sweet with slightly dry bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Enjoyable and solid bitter!

MarkoNm (2382) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - SEP 11, 2016
Pours a little hazy coppery color, topped with a medium small off-white head, a bit creamy. Mild caramel nose, not much else. Some biscuity feel, but mild. Medium full body, gentle sweetness with metallic feel. Some medium bitterness. Not nice after. Terrible aftertaste actually. Ruins the first impression.

NINeil (6) - Maidenhead, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2016 does not count
Pourss with no head. Smooth taste, but ultimately bland with a lack of finish. Not a favourite.

BeerNinjaUK (317) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2016
500ml bottle in mixed selection box from Waitrose. Aroma bready with subtle malts. Taste heavily bitter, with slightly piney hops. Tastes stronger than the ABV would suggest. Solid but not particularly distinctive.

thellgren (830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2016
0.5 l bottle from Stockman, Helsinki. Clear amber colour, well looks like a bitter. Taste is also typical of bitters but with some additional dryness, not just bitterness. Even the bottle version has something I can’t quite pinpoint. Not at all watery as some of the bitters below 4% ABV are. I hope I can taste someday the cask version.
