4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle purchased at Bauer Wine & Spirits in Boston - $5.
Love a good English Bitter, and this is definitely a good one. Lots of fruity tones, but they’re balanced. Lemon peel and apricot/peach/yellow stonefruit dominate the palate. Light bodied and pretty tame ABV make this a more enjoyable beer. Heavier malts on the nose give way to the aforementioned fruitiness and a nice spicy hop kick that, like the palate, is very balanced.
Very enjoyable English Ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
$4.60 for the 500mL bottle purchased from Leary’s earlier today. To oversized snifter, it pours a yellowish gold-orange with a sudsy thin-ringed off-white head half a finger in length. Aromas of salted caramel, DME, cashew butter, red grapes, and noble hops. Tastes the same with the addition of applesauce, brown rice, and tzatziki. Cool.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Lemons. Really very clear impressions of lemon, but not without some grainy sweetness and a touch of nuttiness. Appearance: Soft, light copper with a bubbly white head that settled into a small ring. Flavor: Lemon rules again with some other light hop perfume; it’s the furthest thing from American hops, not assertive, but ever-present. The malts are a little more nutty than in the aroma, with just a little sweetness toward the finish. Palate: Light body, oily texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Nice stuff, though I didn’t like this as much as Landlord. Would be wonderful with some seafood or herbal, grilled chicken.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On bottle: F14-275
It’s golden with a center dome of white, and a brilliant clarity. Smells of sweet malt, some bits of crystal malt, a little metal and herbal hops. Flavor is delicate, malty, nice and enjoyable with just a touch of noble malts. Medium bodied with low carb and a wet finish. Nice beer. Quaffable.

I said I wasn’t going to drink today but wanted to grab a new English county tick so here I am at The Jeffrey sipping bitter. Pours copper with head that dissipates. Nose is slight metallic and grains. Tastes grainy, caramel, of pennies, apricot, lemon, and grass. Pretty bitter with lingering finish.
