Golden clear beer with a small offwhite head. Wet cardborad aroma and flavour, a strange kind of beer...

kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2013
On draught at Cochrane’s in Hong Kong. Pours a clear, light amber with a 2 inch frothy head. Bitter malty aroma. Body is full and has a nice bitter taste. Full and satisfying for such a light beer. Amazingly good sessionability while being full flavored yet light and still satisfying. One of the best English bitters I found on draught in Hong Kong.

Imaena (1834) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Draught. This is a pretty nice bitter with a good sessionable ABV. Worth a go if you see it on tap.

jmgreenuk (4357) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2013
Cask at The Old Joint Stock, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a bubbly off-white head. The aroma is weak malt leading to a medium bitter, malty flavour. The palate is rather weak and watery with just a little malt and the bitterness does fade rather quickly. If seafarers had to drink this at sea I’d be glued to a telescope searching for land!

gowdy (730) - Erskine, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2013
Cask in the White Hart in Aldgate. A medium golden colour with white head. Standard but decent beer.

kevinsenn (1078) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2013
Cask at The Bent Elbow. Clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma of blackcurrant and pepper. A creamy taste with bready malts and a highly bitter finish. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel (since it was on cask).

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2013
Cask. It pours dark golden with a small white head. Nose is some toffee, citrus, grains and hops. Taste is extremely refreshing with a decise hop kick to it. Medium bitterness with. Quite good and hoppy for a classic Bitter.

Spab (2390) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2012
On tap at the Monk’s Table. Pours a clear burnt orange with smallish white head. Aroma is toasty caramel and herbal hops with a light fruitiness. Flavour is slightly toasty toffeeish and fruity malt and modest herbal bitterness. Easy drinking, but some very British character.
