TBone (12567) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 31, 2011
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.

suprchunk (2261) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Light toffee colored pour. Small off-white head that doesn’t last at all and leaves no trace of lacing. Slight caramel aroma. Bit of malt. Dry mouth. Sweet. Carbonic. Slight roastiness.

MoritzF (8521) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2011
(bottle) Clear, dark amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Caramely malty aroma with spicy and subtle fruity hops. Bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Toasted malty taste with present notes of caramel, accompanied by mainly fruity hops; quite dry and bitter-sweet finish with a lasting hoppy tail. 03.IX.11

DuffMan (6802) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
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.

Cirrhosis (1209) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2011
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.

On tap at Craft Beer. Clear amber beer, tidy pale tan head. Light dry palate. Nice malt, with a little caramel. Some dried fruits. Dry finish, mildly bitter aftertaste. Inoffensive and drinkable.

ladnewton (1427) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2011
Cask at Craft Beer Co. on 2nd July 2011. Reddish copper with thin white head and initial lacing. Fruity, spicy and pungent aroma. Delightful combination of hop and smoke in-mouth; smoky bitterness continues into a long and enjoyable finish, on a zingy mouthfeel. Excellent.
