A refreshing amber coloured Best Bitter, with a well-balanced malty and hoppy flavour. An excellent mid-gravity session ale brewed to suit that special Northern palate.

Pizd (429) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a clear copper colour, small white head. Aroma of malt, biscuit, caramel and some light fruit. Same notes in the taste. Fresh, crisp, incredibly drinkable. Wasn’t expecting much but it was a surprisingly nice beer.

Bottle from Dadster. Nice amber ale perhaps lacking depth of flavour. Average but easy drinking ale.

danlo (895) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear copper amber colour, bubbly white head with sour mash type aroma. Fizzy on the tongue with malt followed by tangy bitterness, the fizzy sensation and bitterness lingers alittle. Nice bitter but quite light bodied.

Not a bad beer, but not great. Light and crisp though a bit watery. Some grass and earthy flavors. Tried with Dave Bell in Durham in 2012.

Taste is of bitter malts, a very traditional beer, very northern tasting, dry on the palate

tfredvik (941) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2012
Clear medium amber body with an average, frothy off-white head of decent lifetime, good lacing. A bit faint aroma with few recognisable elements, I get mainly light caramel, fruits and some faint floral notes. Moderate to light bitter finish and quite faint flavours. A bit thin and watery. Not very exciting, but there’s nothing wrong with this beer, so a fair session ale, I suppose.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 3 months after BB date, from Jacobs, Oslo]

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 Bright copper with creamy head. Has a high bitterness with a very malty aroma.
