En øl der helt sikker bliver bedre efter hver mundfuld. Den har en eftersmag der hænger længe bagerst i ganen som er en smule bitter/frisk. En rigtig god øl efter man har taget et bare tårer. Har en fantastisk duft. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Off the tap, It is clear golden amber with a pretty good but dissipating off-white head. Tastes quite sweet and malty with the bitterness coming through with the almost spicy hops.

This is a lovely bitter. Dark copper colour with little head. Starts with sweet malt then comes the citrus bitterness. Very smooth, not what I expected ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Well balanced, albeit very mild, aromas and flavors. Nice finishing bitterness. Somewhat watery. Good but nowhere near their ESB.

Butterscotch and light fruit scent. Floorcloth, dried fruit, sewer water to taste. Weak bitterness that fills the mouth well a weak moment. But they love the English bitter beer then this is a tip. Follow me @ Kung av Ųl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Alengrin (1025) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Classic Fullerís bitter, the more ordinary and accessible version of Fullerís ESB, I suppose. Irregular, snow white, sticky, stable head, deep orangey amber colour. Subtle aroma of light maltiness, nuts and floral hops; taste more rich than expected from the rather weak aroma, nutty, apple, lemon peel, evolving into a herbal, flowery, full hop bitterness, long, dry and thirst-quenching. Thinner and less robust than the ESB but still very enjoyable.

mt_hall (107) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Bottled. Dark copper colour with a small off-white head and noticeable carbonation. Good malty aroma, then smooth malt and caramel flavours, with a slightly acidic (even metallic?), dry finish. Not as good from the bottle as I remember it being on draft.

Transfer from BA review on 11-5-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance Ė Pours an amber brown color with a two finger just off white head. The head fades to leave a light level of lacing. Smell Ė The aroma is heavy of a bready aroma. With this smell is a good lot of butterscotch and some lighter fruit aromas of apple cider. Taste Ė The taste begins with a crisp bready flavor. A lighter butterscotch sweeter flavor then comes to tongue. As the taste advances, some of the apple cider in the nose is detected on the tongue. This mixes well with the rest, and at the end, is joined some light herbal and earthy bitterness which leave a rather pleasant taste on the tongue. Mouthfeel Ė The body of the beer is on the rather average side in terms of creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is the same. Overall Ė A tasty and very drinkable brew with a good blend of malty, lightly sweet, and lightly bitter. Rather refreshing.
