UPDATED: NOV 30, 2012 Bottle. Clear copper gold color. Fluffy off white head. Very nice aroma of hops and malts, including bready and toasty characters. Solid flavor and well balanced with both hops and sugary malts. Bitter but not harsh. Very nice overall.

God og fruktig lager. Skikkelig frisk, med god kullsyre og lett bitterhet.

A great representation of the style and a fabulous beer. Nice balance between the malty sweet and hop bitterness. A fine session ale.

0.5 l can poured in an ordinary glass. Itís not only the beautiful bottle (the can is also imposing: Black can with the red blazon watermarked: "Whatever you do, take pride"). This is a very good Fullerís specimen. Nice authentic Bitter. A: Beautiful amber-crystal color with a reasonable (1-2 finger) beige head. S: Wonderful hop perfume. Some honey and, at the same time, dry and citrus. Malt and bread. Classic Bitter smell I have to say it... T: Excellent composition of malt and hops. Those Fullerís yeasts are also a must. M: Light carbonation. Bitterness from the beginning til the end: Very nice! D: High. Thatís a beer that I would drink the all day long: God save the Fullerís! [ BA Review @ 2/12/2010 ]

Another tick from the most ratings list. Crisp clean and chewy grain. Light grassy hops. Candi sugar. Quintessential English bittter.

Rodriguez (264) - Quito, ECUADOR - OCT 8, 2014
Dark copper, good head retention, medium carbonation, malty aroma and flavor well balanced with bitterness, very low fruitiness. Medium body, dry finish. Definitively a session beer with lots of drinkability.

Very nice. A solid ESB, although I wouldnít say the best of breed. Malty notes in abundance; some slippery mouthfeel that I expect. Wouldnít mind an increase in abv for a bit more flavor.
