Bottled 500ml (BZ, BB 07/2012)
Deep amber color, good creamy off-white head, some lace. Salty hoppy and nutty nose. Good body for this abv, although finish is a bit watery. Licorice-hoppy flavor, light lingering hoppyness. Very typical British bitter and reminds me about Fullers ESB and other Fullers bitters.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared by Parksy. Bright amber-orange with a lively gold-tinted head. Aroma is caramel with woody and fruity nuances. Caramel flavour dominates, with nutty notes, hints of fruit, and a tea-like hop note in the very dry finish. Solid.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown body with a massive 3” crown that’s stupidly long lasting. Aroma has slight soap, nice leather, with an abundance of yummy hop, even getting the odd hint of chocolate. Very nice so far. Great bitter flavor, nice earthy malts, awesome leather. What ells do you need in an English bitter?? Is that peach I’m tasting, because if it is…………………….At room temp beer got watery, but still good. I like this beer a lot, it is good.
