Pours a clean amber with a small, slight off white head; light lacing. Aroma is of fruity hops. Semi medium bitterness. Light to medium body, crisp on the tongue, slightly dry and bitter finish. Overall, a pleasant ale, nothing groundbreaking but an all around solid choice.

Gary (1662) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
(355 ml) In jug pint . an american take on the quintessential uk style bitter ... bitters are always more flavoursome and interesting warm and from the cask . orange shade of liquid with just a subtle creamy white head.malty nose -bready , a little citrus hops .subtle strawberry . dranks with a rich bready malt texture and dry hoppy grapefruit mix. . quit legit to an esb such as london pride but as mentioned -this style is better cask.

Stoned99 (502) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 17, 2015
341ml Bottle from Halles St-Jean. Aroma: caramel, citrus, herbacy. App: cloudy almost clear amber with medium off white frothy head. Taste and palate: medium body, light texture,medium carbonation, watery, tiny disappointing bitter and dry finish. Overall: not impressed. Lacking in bitterness, watery, body too thin. Could be a good pairing beer but alone, it?s quite boring.

BiereLuc (1137) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2015
Bière cuivrée, limpide, peu mousseuse. Nez légèrement floral sur un lit discret de caramel. En bouche, des houblons mi-fruités mi-herbacés s’échangent les politesses sur le plancher de danse. Un peu de biscuit en périphérie. Rien ne dépasse de la trame. Les temps sont comptés et la cadence ne sombre pas dans la démesure. C’est pas mal ce à quoi je m’attends d’une Bitter. C’est un peu mince, sans être aqueux. Je l’ai essayée en fût et en bouteille et le produit est très similaire dans les deux cas (c’est positif).

DuchessOfIowa (51) - Iowa, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Out of a can. Aroma is herbal, piney, with a little citrus. Nice rich amber hue with lacing as I drink. Caramel sweetness and typical English hops flavor that is faint with some pine and minimal citrus. Soft dry bitterness on the palate.

Poobah (324) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Light bronze with a dense, medium head, some lacing and a honey, peach nose. Malty intro with a mildly-carbonated, soft palate reminiscent of an English Ale. Finishes with honey, barely ripe peaches, and a mild bitterness.

Deep amber color with a medium white lacing head. Malty aroma, not a lot of hops. Smooth, not bad.

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.
