Martin243 (800) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Live Rating. Pint bottle cool at home, served in an English pint. Amber brew, with a negligible off-white head, leaving lacing around the glass: bitter orange, toffee, and rust aroma. Floral hop flavour, digestive biscuit and a bitter orange astringency. Thin texture soft carbonation nice bitter finish. Just enough charm to avoid the dread "dull" label. An unspectacular but satisfying example of brown English bitter.

SarkyNorthener (2391) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle from B&M, pwhelli. Amber beer with medium head. Aroma of malts and some light caramel. Taste is malty, cereal grain with a hint of caramel. Not great.

zacgillbanks (2559) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2014
Bottles from Booths, Keswick and Home Bargains, Washington. Golden coloured with toffee and delicate floral fruity flavours followed by a biscuit and gentle bitter finish. Pretty good for a low-ish ABV beer.

beeebon (222) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle from Home Bargains. Pours a golden colour with a thin soapy head. Very basic but drinkable session bitter. Mostly sweetish biscuit malt with mild hop backbone. Nothing special but drinkable and tasty enough for itís strength.

AshtonMcCobb (2938) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 26, 2014
On cask at the Wheatsheaf in Wetheral. Appearance - amber with a lovely creamy head. Nose - butterscotch Iím afraid but maybetitís fudge. Taste - more butterscotch and malt. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a slightly astringent finish. Overall - not worth getting another.

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2014
500ml Bottle from Beers of Europe: drank at home on 2nd July 2014. Poured into a Batemanís pint sleeve. Clear amber to copper body with a full but fading off-white head. Nice blend of aromas and flavours, malts lead the way in both the nose and taste, lightly roasted, bread like in fact. The hops are there but in the background somewhat. Good depth of body for a 3.8% ABV brew.

AdiBeer (1558) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
Aroma: bread malts, not much else. Appearance: clear gold, small white creamy head. Taste: light sweet and bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, pushing the grainy malts into the background. Overall: sub-standard Bitter, just not liking the palate too much. Pint at William Rufus, Carlisle.

allmyvinyl (4247) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2014
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear amber, little to no head. Light malt loaf aromas, dried fruit, bit of butterscotch. Taste hasnít got a right lot going on. Bit watery. Ok.
