Cask at Portland brewpub, pours a cloudy orangish amber with a white head, quite nice for a cask brew. Smell is faintly of malts and hops and taste is a nice smooth hop taste from the yakuza hops nice authentic European bitter.

A very classic bitter flavor with a unique hoppiness. Hint of caramel and frosted flakes cereal. Seriously.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
cask at Portland location - This amber colored brew has a mild malt aroma. There’s some good bitterness along with light caramel malt. It has a gently carbonated, light body with a little lingering hops bitterness. Okay.

Poured from a 22oz bottle hand delivered to me from ME. Was very tasty. I wish that I would have had more to really do a worthwhile review... but my first impression was very good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the brewpub. Pours a mostly clear tea color with no visible carbonation or head. Light aroma of grass, tea, and pale malts. Flavor of tea, grass, cereal grains, and smooth, sweet malts. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Decent.

( cask GBBF). I think this was my second take on an American ’Bitter’ (other being from Rougue) considering its the quintessential style for us Britons , i had to sample it. Caramel like maltiness like customs....appley esters ...a bit toasty and then cloying. Not bad . Its not a style I love, so it is what it is.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This used to be one of my favorite beers but the quality has slipped a bit. Floral hops and butterscotch tones in the aroma. Thin white head and no lacing on very slightly hazy copper ale. Light carbonation with the bitterness up front fading to a carmel malt finish. Again some butterscotch notes. Body is too thin and that detracts a bit from the flavor.
