Draft at brewpub. Finally a bitter that lives up to itís name. Not much on the nose. Bitter taste on the front of the tongue but it fades fairly quickly leading to an interesting beer.

GABF 2011. Clear brilliant gold, frothy white head. Sweet toffee aroma with a touch of lemon zest and balanced hoppiness. Taste is very well balanced but plenty floral with mild toffee tones, and mild citrus rind. Body is a little too light for my liking.

[Bottle] Pours a light shade of amber. Quickly receding head leaves nice lacing. Aroma of crisp hops, caramel and sweet rolls. The taste is of mild malts, light citrus, grassy hops, woodruff and a bit of light brown sugar. The body is a bit on the thin side. Easy to drink and very sessionable.
