4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
500 ml bottle from Liquor Depot, served in a straight-sided goblet. I think this may be the first English bitters Iíve ever had. Pours a faintly hazy orangey-amber with moderate carbonation and a short, tan head with a brief retention period, leaving moderate streaks of lace. Aroma dips deeply into semi-sweet maltiness, with goodly citrus and winey hop traits, touched with sweet spices and the juices of stone fruits; the flavor is pleasingly dry and mildly bitter, with malt stepping aside and lying low to allow the hops to present themselves in citrus, vinous, and mild stone fruitiness, sprinkled with a pinch of black pepper. Mouthfeel is lightly thick and somewhat creamy, but finishes very cleanly, with just-right bitterness levels. Very pleasant and definitely sessionable; little wonder this is such a popular and long-lived ale style.

Pours clear amber from 12 oz, thin white head. Malty sweet aroma with notes of caramel. Well balanced flavor dominated by hops with crystal or caramel backbone. Crisp mouthfeel with low carbonation. Nice English bitter, very drinkable, gotta be the classic. Would rather have it from a cask but take what I can get.

On tap. Light toffee malt aroma with faint floral hops-rose water. Crystal clear bronze under a lasting, lacy white flannel blanket. Sweet light toasty toffee flavour that yields to gentle, earthy hops and a light lemony note. Moderate bitterness, moderate carbonation, medium light body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, slightly lively golden beer with a decent bubbly head and a bittersweet malt scent. Flavour is mild with a sweet, resinous quality. Fruity hop comes through and endures, with the finish ending up being quite bitter and a nicely balanced flavour makes up for a slightly watery feel in the mouth.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cerveja acobreada, sem presença de espuma e translúcida. O aroma é clássico das Porters, com o lúpulo e toque floral se sobressaindo; é possível prever uma cerveja rústica, com origens campestres. O sabor é agradável e muito equilibrado; é possível sentir uma Porter, porém sem exageros, com amargor equilibrado, drinkability simples, aftertaste seco e agradável, toque amadeirado e corpo leve. Não há espuma e o aroma convida ao consumo. Excelente para ser bebida pura, sem alimentos. Apesar de uma cerveja simples, é agradável e voa para inverno ou verão. Ótima pedida entre as Fullers, é a grande cerveja do dia-a-dia, agradável, leve e inspiradora.
