Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2006
50 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Amber clear colour with a nice white head. Nice light aroma of sweetness and fruit. Nice tasty flavour with notes of caramel, malt and a smooth hoppy finish. Very drinkable.

Finn (6291) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2008 Pretty bottle! Deep red-brown colour. Almost no head. Some caramel and malt. A mild bitter, sweet aftertaste that lasts. KI=6.

Capa (2727) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAR 13, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2008 Pours a reddish orange with a large pillowy head that fizzles off as to be expected. Aroma is sweet and fruity with some hops as well. Flavor is of caramel and sweet malts along with slight fruit sweetness. Mouth is crisp and has a very refreshing quality to it. You could drink a few of these in a row. Quality brew, not my favorite but good.

Dinobrown (46) - Virginia, USA - MAR 12, 2006
12oz pours a light caramel color with very slight head. Slight cardboard aroma with hints of citrus. A lovely pale beer with mild bitterness and lasting finish. I could drink a lot of this one. Fullers is just downright consistant.

Beer5000 (5903) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2008 500 ml bottle. Nice malt aroma, a bit burnt. Deep dark, mahogany colour. Nice head. Pleasant taste, sweet malt, coffee and mocha. Dry aftertaste. Amazingly complex beer at this low alcohol.

JugOPunch (83) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 11, 2006
On tap at the Horseshoe Pub: A strange brew. A pronounced rotten fruit aroma. Smelled mostly of rank pears and plums. But not as bad as it sounds. A very smooth drinkable palate with the same over ripe pear flavor. I was sure I had this before but it definitely seemed less hopped and less complex than I remember in the bottle. Didnít find the hop balance I was looking for (even by Brit standards.) But overall, a decent session choice which after all is what a good Bitter is meant to be.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2006
As for pale ales, this one is very mellow and mild, easy to drink several at one sitting. Some english malt aroma with a little earthy hops in the nose and in the flavor. The easy to drink quality of this beer is appreciated after trying many over the top pale ales. Nothing special, but solid and nice to drink for a session ale.

Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2006
On tap at Andyís. I had assumed this was some form of a bitter before I even ordered it. Looks, smells, tastes like a bitter. Nice malt flavor with a snap of hop bitterness. Premium bitter

DiogŤne (1145) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2006
Bottle- Clear copper with a medium white head. Aroma is malty and hopped. The taste is malty with an awesome blend of hops, a good touch of bitterness with all the aroma. Body is medium.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - FEB 28, 2006
Somewhere between copper and amber, this bitter has a bready malt nose that finishes with hoppy dryness. Palate is bit thin but bounces with hop enthusiasm. Flavor is actually quite nice with a firm malt backbone that reins in, but ultimately yields to mouth-coating European hops that have an immediately refreshing quality. Wish it had more alcohol punch to it. Otherwise, a nice, mature bitter.
