Better taste than aroma but still there are plenty supperior ales of the same style out there. The palete is standing between american and english ale without reaching any of those. Will drink it again though

One of my favorite bitters nice color... Not overly hoppy. And not too carbonated. A real traditional English bitter.

Helsdon (130) - Toronto, CANADA - JUL 15, 2014
Coming from the Hinterlands of Ontario’s LCBO domain I’ve only seen the Vintage versions of GL beer, which are exceptional. This is the first regular beer, if seasonal, I’ve had. So...Pint poured in a random Philly airport restaurant. Pours dark amber with finer of fluffy beige head. Smells of hops and caramel malt. Taste caramel malts, bitter malts, some ash on the finish with some lingering bitterness. Generally good beer. In a airport no less. 5 years ago it would all be Bud, MGD and Labatt Blue as the import. we’ve come a long way baby. Don’t worry about this one Tiki.

Daniel719 (122) - Safety Harbor, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2014
On draft. Not much aroma. Pours orange. Taste is bitter with a nice hoppiness. Good summer time beer in my opinion. I could drink a few at a time. Not sure why it is rating so low on here.

joejames (109) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Draft @ Golden Crust, Red Lion, PA. Pours amber/brown, head was thin but lacing was there. Aroma of bread, nuts and herbs. Taste is mildly bitter, lots of malty sweetness. Body was light, medium carbonation, mouth feel was a little thin. Finishes earthy bitter (herbs, flowers) and toasty malt sweetness. A good example of a English style bitter.
