ALLOVATE (2769) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2016
A new import to Oz from the giant Greene King. Into a half pint nonic at just just on cool. Quite charged, it lifts a good two inches of rocky white foam. Holds well atop a bright, golden chestnut body. English nose; floral, grassy and lightly earthy with a touch of roasted peanuts and fresh baked, white bread. A little lean on the palate. Not watery but borderline. Soft in feel with a smooth finish. Toasted, grainy malt, slightly powdery in feel. Peppery and floral in back with a touch of burnt sugar aiding the hops to give it a medial bitterness. It is weak in flavour but what is here is highly sessionable. Clean cut English Bitter. (33cL, BBE 10/16, BIDBeer)

johndoughty (4619) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle( Clear ). Bitterness dominates and there are few other flavours floating around. Pretty boring even by G-K standards.

Majek (578) - Ząbki, POLAND - OCT 7, 2013
Clear, nice copper coloru with quite big head. Maybe not very intensive, but pleasant aroma of caramel and hops (earthy and resinous). Taste is.... hmm.. hard to say... It’s really empty, watery, only minimal caramel and earth. Definitely too watery! Really dissapionting.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2013
500ml bottle, best before 31 March 2013, at tasting on 20 January 2013. Thanks to Leighton for sharing. Not much glory in evidence here. Looks fine - bright coppery amber colour but that’s where the goodness ends. The aroma is packed with grainy cereal notes backed up with lashings of paper and cardboard. The fruity character, with a struggle, just manages to peek out from behind the cardboard curtain on the palate. Pretty poor. A textbook example of why pasteurised low strength bitters rarely take well to bottling. And the clear glass probably didn’t help.
