berkshirejohn (4392) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2014
50cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. Amber with a billowing cream head; attractive malty aroma with some orchard fruit and honey; smooth and malty in the mouth, with caramel, pear and honey, and gentle grassy bitterness; the finish is rather on the sweet side with a touch of grapefruit, but overall this is a good bitter.

Bottle from Sourced Market St Pancras and drunk at home. Hazy amber lasting off white head. Toffee malt aroma. Caramel. Not much hop, some on the finish, some bitterness. It’s a caramel, slightly earthy hop bitter. Sweet caramel is quite attractive. It’s a decent caramel and hop bitter. Decent

TimE (3100) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2013
Light amber color, honey, woody, soft hop notes, very austere. The mouth is very malt accented, well balanced, but I noticed a touch of band-aid. Slight bitter finish. Decent English bitter that is a bit more amped up than usual.
