COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised in kegs and cans (previously pasteurised in bottles too).
Previously known as Cains Traditional Bitter.
NOTE: Only ratings for the canned and kegged version should be posted here. The cask version has a separate listing.
A regular winner of awards for quality and flavour, and winner of the silver medal at the International Brewing Industry Awards 2002, this refreshing yet full-bodied bitter is a favourite with beer drinkers everywhere. The rich flavours of premium malt and goldings hops are unmistakable in this well balanced, traditionally brewed bitter.

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2010
Dåse: rødbrun klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duft af syntetisk engelsk humle. Smagen er kraftig metallisk og al det værste fra engelske bitters. Virkelig ikke en særlig god øl.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2010
Can. Pours an light amber color with an off white head. Aroma is of hops that are slightly floral, along with some sweet malt. Flavor is basically the same, and has a rather weak and muted taste. Body is light and slightly watery. Overall an ok Bitter but not worth picking up again.

thegreenrooster (3159) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is some caramel malt. Flavor is about the same. Some caramel malt maybe a touch of hops and a bitter aftertaste. Very thin but I know they were going for an old school style english bitter. Good thing I live in the times of better crafted brew.

degbert (1061) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Can. Nose is caramel, nuts, and toast. Pours a clear brown with very little head. Flavor is strange -- there’s a weird vegetal note, then roast, then a thin sweetness on the close. Not pleasant. Skip this one; drink their Dark Mild.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 19, 2010
Can, 50cl. pours a clear and dark amber beer with a weak offwhite head. The aroma is malt and sweetness. The flavor is very close to the nose. The palate is sweetness. Overall a boring beer.
