Bottle at Green Café. Cooper colour with white head. Earthy aroma with wild berries and easy esters. Taste is malty, fermented berries and cask flavors. Drove through miles of hop fields to have this brew and taste the local hop finish.

Takie sobie precietnie dostateczne piwo. Z niewielka piana pecherzykowa koloru amber no i nieco drozdzy lekko zmetnilo barwe. Ciut slodowe wyraznie rozwodnione goryczkowe ale umiarkowanie i to bardzo. Na ESB powinno sie wiecej chmielic. A tak tu mamy zwykle piwo srednio wychmielone. Sporo innych angielskich Bitterow bylo bardziej goryczkowe niz to ESB.

Bottle from Co-Op in Oakham, Rutland. Poured a clear dark golden colour with a medium off white head. Malty aroma with bread notes and a slight metallic hint. Flavour is of cereal, caramel and grass. Grains, biscuit and some light hop bitterness on the finish.

Golden amber. Sweet fruity bit honey aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a soft sweetness with bitter hops, caramel and bread. Like the bitter balance

I bought this at lunchtime and drank it in the evening. From a bottle. This information is not interesting. Draw your own conclusions.
