canned, labeled Finest Bitter; from the Fête de la Bière 2005, Lausanne - dark and bright amber colour, very shy foam, the nose shows a pleasant aromatic hoppiness with deep flowery notes and a touch of red fruits and honey in the background, low carbonation and a good malt backbone, a moderate but long lasting bitterness while the hops show themselves a last time in a quite malty aftertaste

Served on draft at Mellow Mushroom Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of floral hops and caramel malts. The taste is caramel, toasted malts, bitter leafy hops and a faint bit of fruitiness. Medium bodied. Very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
440ml can. The store called it a "Dark Mild" but it is 4% and called "Finest Bitter".
It pours a clear dark mahogany with a fizzy eggshell white head that dissipates with no lacing.
The smell is mostly English hops (Goldings) with some cocoa and biscuit.
The flavor is okay. Mostly biscuit, some hops and metal. The mouthfeel is thin but slightly "creamy". Just a typical session beer if you don’t wanna fill up.
