For a 3.4% abv bitter this really does the business for me. Most bitters of this strength are short on flavour and character, but this isn’t.
It has a lovely bitter finish with a lightish malty hoppy taste, and a classic English ale nut brown colour.

Fragrant, balanced, three malts provide a stable, rich base. Hops are two kinds of good reveals flavors of ingredients. Thanks to the two fermentations, which is used for brewing, a very aromatic bitters with a rich bouquet and complex, harmonious taste.

Tasted right after an APA, so that may be why it kinda disapeared in my mouth. Pretty good, it seemed, but I need to re-rate when I get a chance.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Great beer. Very hoppy and bitter, in the english style, and particularly for an english beer. Deep hazelnut color, with a slightly off white head. Pours well, with a thick tight head. Aroma is almost entirely hops. I’m not too familiar with british varieties, but my guess is goldings or target? It doesn’t smell like Fuggles. A bit of underlying malt. Flavor bursts with the same hops, the malts riding under to provide balance. Enough malt to carry the bitterness, but still let it take center stage. Wonderful stuff.

Clear medium amber with a small uneven off-white head. Aroma of cut hay, apricots, slight moldy hops. Nice bitter taste. A great tasting beer that at 3.4% I could drink all night. Slightly dry finish.
