3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Light toffee malt aroma. Dark amber with small head. Lightly sweet toffee malt and mildly grass/hay flavor. Nice (especially since I was able to get it fresh).

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 donít wanna fill up.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
440 (14.9oz) can. clear, dark copper color. Thin, persisting creamy cream-colored head. Loose, sliding lace. Light body, smooth, light carbonation. Very easy to drink. Malty, musty, sort of... Like a light skunk to it, but itís charming. The bitter taste is nice. Iím new to this style, so maybe I donít know what a good "bitter" is. Aroma has some chocolate. Shared a bit with my mom, she thought it was under-carbonated, and that the aroma was lacking. I think this is good, though. Underrated brew.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
1/16/12. 16oz can. Clear ruby pour with a small tan head that sticks. Light caramel aroma with toasted breads, caramel, a bit of metal, and green apples. Sweet caramel flavor with toasted breads, more metal, and sweet green apples. This is a glass of disaster.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can and served in my GI Imperial Pint Glass: Pours an okay amber hue with a small fading head and not any lace. The aroma is that of crystal malt, touch of 2-row, touch of Northdown hops, touch of soap and a fair amount of Diacetyl... crystal malt mostly. The taste is far too sweet and buttery even for a English Bitter. The mouthfeel is soft and could have benefited from some creamy nitro bubbles to give it at least a handpull feel. Meh, Blah, below average.
