2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle--somewhat disappointing. Pours a hazy, light, orange color with a small, soapy head that leaves light lacing. Aroma is slight but it mostly light bread as opposed to biscuit with some pear and spice. Taste is bread and spice, no caramel. The finish is very bitter but with a light touch. Gift.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
A very tasteless beer, no malt aroma or taste at all. Only aroma or taste is an odd flowery one. Bitters are meant to be brewed, fermented, conditioned and drank within a month. This style is all about freshness, hence the staleness in a bottled, imported and shelf stagnant beer. Please fellow drinkers don’t let this discourage you from wonderful bitters. If your at a local brewery order the bitter or brew your own bitter there fresh, great, easy and social. With a delicious grainy bread biscuity and subtle bitter flavor, not like this one.

drink was clear in the glass. Hop aroma and strong hop taste. Light head with a fair lacing. Smooth with a dry finish. I did not pick out much in the way of other flavours or malt. With less hops this might be almost tasteless. A different taste for a bitter, im a bit undecided with this beer not sure if its nice or horrid its very strange

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nose is biscuit, cereal, light spice touch of berry. Taste is cereal, light bitterness, biscuit, touch of pepper and spice leading to earth and soft floral tones. The mouthfeel is light and suitable for a session beer.
This is that rarest of things, a good quality traditional session bitter with taste and body which is available from supermarkets. It’s pretty much as good as it gets from mainstream traditional British bitter (which is a bit damming really). Interesting to note the American reviews here are better than the UK ones.... Perhaps we are taking it for granted...

A little better than the XB save for the aroma, but this is slightly more complex and flavorful. Still not a standout instyle or worth the price, though, IMO. Live and learn..."

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a nice, easily drinkable British bitter. From a 500 ml. bottle. Pours rich, clear gold with a nice white fluffy head that retains and leaves lacing. Aroma of grass, sweet malt, grains, and slightly floral. Taste is quite dry and bitter but manageable, it is a mild to medium bitterness, not too resiny. Has more of a grassy, herbal character. Has a light body, slick texture, average to soft carb., and bitter finish but still refreshing.
