BeerViking (2874) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Dark gold with a lasting fine white head, nose is lightly biscuit grainy with a pleasant spicy and lightly floral hoppiness, palate is dry-bitter with an earthy and vegetal bitterness. Nicely bitter golden ale in the modern English vein.

harrisoni (14465) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose and drunk at home. Clear amber colour with thick lasting beige head. A golden bitter really. Having had the regular bitter yesterday, this is about the same but with some slightly less brown malty flavour and less peppery bitter on the end. Good standard golden bitter though. Some biscuit in the malts, some bitter sting on the finish.

Mr_Pink_152 (1429) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
500ml bottle from local supermarket. Amber with a white head. The Aroma is fruity, and the taste is too, with an earthy bitterness and a touch of citrus.

Erzengel (4730) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2014
Kupfer, malzig, weich und leicht. Typisch Ale-Bitter, etwas süßlich. Nett aber nicht umwerfend.

Countbeer (4973) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle: BB somewhere in 2009, oh oh... Served in a Palm snifter: Small white foamy head on top of a cloudy orange colored beer. Wow, I smell a teeny tiny bit if citrus, amazing. Some herbs, some malts, some cream, slight tint of apricot and some wood ish malts. Flavour is very well kept those 4 a 5 years; bitters, herbs, malts, some lemon to light tart ish tone, some plant ish tones, hay and a light woody flowery touch. Aftertaste is bitter, malty, herbal, light dry, hay and nutty. Low carbo, watery mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light creamy texture. Very nice, after all those years!

wimpyjoe (5089) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Copper amber coloured, next to no head but has a lovely smooth texture in the palate. Has a slightly grainy character but its bitterness is also evident.
