Listed everywhere i see it as an apa, but this classification of bitter is more appropriate, maybe even english pale ale. Clear gold pour, with a small white head. Aroma is slightly pungent, subtle uk hops, pale malts, decent cereals, mouthfeel and carb are spot on, the finish is lightly bitter with some floral uk hops, and a solid malt bill. Nothing spectacular, but well executed and a good session ale.

Bottle from Whole Foods in Richmond upon Thames, pours amber-brown with a thin head and a fruity, lightly earthy hop nose. Lightly nutty with toffeeish malt and an earthy bitterness, with a bit less gas this would be a quite decent "premium bottled ale".

Aroma is lacklustre, not much to it really. Looks fantastic a very deep dark honey colour. Taste is what you would expect from a bitter, it’s bitter but very drinkable. On the palate it’s interesting, rather fizzy on the tongue but almost sticky on the way down. Overall: ok, nothing spectacular.

Draft at a local Pizza place. Aroma of fruit with light caramel and hops. Light amber color with a slight white head. Hoppy flavor with with spice and caramel to give it backbone. Easily drinkable with a hoppy finish. I liked this more than most other bitters. It’s not as boring thanks to the spice kick.
