Bottle from Oddbins London Bridge. I’ve just heard the phrase "my father would have killed for a rectum of a horse." which puts everything into context doesn’t it? Dark brown beer with a lasting thick dark beige head. This is a very good best bitter. Brilliant malts, great peppery hop on the end. This is really good. A very good best bitter.

ON bottle from Jacobs på Holtet, Oslo. AMber color, good foam. Medium aroma intensity; dominated by eucalyptus, also malt, dried fruits, choclate and some fruitiness. Medium/light body & complexity. Very bitter, a bit too much. Enjoyable

Aroma of malts, toast, caramel and dried fruits. Mahogany with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Overall a really great Bitter, lots of sweet flavours from the malt and nice hoppy bitterness in the finish to balance it.

(Cask at Akkurat, 20160324) The beer poured deep mahogany coloured and clear. Its head was small and white and it lasted long. Aroma had malts, roasted nuts and earth. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were earth, malts, roasted nuts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A pleasant solid bitter.

Rune (10510) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2016
500ml bottle bought at Kjeller 5 and shared with Finn Arvid at his place. Rocky beige head that stayed for a while over a close to clear mahogany coloured body. Fair lacing. Roasted malty aroma with fruity hints. Rich taste profile of nuts and dark caramel nicely blended with roasted malty bitterness to a rather long-lived ending. Medium bodied. Brit bitter at its best (Tromsø 28.01.2016).

Dark brown colour. Really strong aroma and flavour of toasty malts. Really full flavoured and a perfect session bitter.

djoeye (3074) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2016
Look; light fawn top on copper ruby clear body. Nice lacing layer. Aroma; dusty malts surrounded by leafy hops. Taste; dark malts, hops, roasted malts, lighter grapefruits, leaves - finishes hoppy malty, balanced. Feels good, subdued carbonation, normal body. Overall good brew!

Flaske 500ml fra Kjeller 5. Mørk gyldenbrun. Mye kullsyre på glasset. Middels høyt luftig skum med litt farge. Litt lacing. Lett maltaroma. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken balansert. Fine nyanser av malt. Blir passe tørr etter hvert og gir mersmak. Veldig "engelsk".

Bottle from Det Gode Brygg. Pours clear deep ruby with a big creamy beige head. Good malty aroma, dark caramel and raisins. Taste is moderate sweet with a weak roasty note and some good dry hops at the end. Good smooth mouthfeel, almost as a weak porter for me.
