3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear old gold pour with a thin off white head that holds at a thick skim and leaves sparse lacing. Aroma is tree fruit, toffee, caramel, toast and planty, floral and herbal hops. Flavor is very fruity, lots of tree fruit and berry sweetness, dry leaves, toast, sweet malt, toast and mineral notes. Light, dry feel thoughout with a nice mineral crispness and medium strength, blanketing and appropriately somewhat sharp carbonation, great palate for the flavor and aroma profile. Pretty decent stuff. Would be a great pairling for tempura or battered fish.

Dobry bitter ze sporą i trwała pianą, Barwa jasno miedziana, o lekkim zmętnieniu. W smaku wyraźnie goryczkowe i wytrawny głęboki finisz po przełknięciu. Ten bitter wspaniale pasuje do angielskiej kuchni np. Ryby z frytkami. Pamiętajmy żeby niezbyt mocno schłodzić piwo, a wtedy lepiej będzie smakował.

Aroma is nearly neutral with some toast and sulphur - very much like beer still fermenting. Flavor is mild bready and just enough hops to keep the finish relatively dry. Not bad but would not seek it out.

Clear mahogony orange with little head. Virtualy no hoips in the aroma, and fient smell of toasted bread with hints of marmalade.. This one is a quaffer, low carbontion, smooth texture, good flavor throughout, and dry bitterness (but not a hop type bitter) at the end. What was missing was the traditional british bitters snap found in the Burtons beers, which cleanses the palate. This is good stuff, however, easy drinker , and i bet why better local and out of the cask on tap.

Very slightly hazed gold/light copper.Inch of head,little lacing.
Was a bit skunky at first then has some mild pleasant hoppiness of pepper/spice/mild fruit. Kind of buttery/carmel and toast. Light aroma overall.
Smooth kind of buttery a little toast,sllight dryness,some mild carmel,light fruit notes,toasty dryness in finish.Spicey peppery. Some citrus rind in bitter.Pretty good for a 4%er. I wouldnt say its "intense resinous" is true as described.

Medium clear amber orange with a thin frothy lacy, lasting tan head. Smells of fruit or floral elements, spiced grass hops and gain malt with caramel. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. The taste starts with spice and light acidity with some bitter flowery notes. Sweet caramel malt with a bitter finish. Creamy and easy to drink. A smooth and excellent session bitter. Nice.
