An elegant, straw coloured bitter. The hint of sweetness is complemented by subtle hop flavours, leading to a dry finish. Brewed using Maris Otter pale Ale malt, Hobson's yeast and finished with Worcestershire Goldings and Herefordshire Progress hops.

jmgreenuk (6951) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 28, 2012
Slightly cloudy amber pour with a long lasting frothy head. Slightly malty aroma leading to a rather rich malty flavour and some bitterness on the palate. A decent summer ale, but it won’t win too many prizes.

AshtonMcCobb (4899) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle from Tanner’s of Shrewsbury. Pours golden and hazy with a generous head. Nose of gentle toffee and some ginger. Taste of fudge, biscuits and then a lemon note on the end. Palate is medium bodied with a bitter tangy middle section and a dry bitter finish. Overall an interesting bitter.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle from Nuneaton Asda. Pale, brilliant gold slicked with white. Smells like a cheap tinned Greek lager; envelope, cooked veg, wheat citrus, fizz and corn. Better flavour with a Belgian hint of fruit and spice; coriander-like impressions, finishing hop bitterness.

BlackHaddock (5723) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
Sept 2006 from BA: This is a straw coloured English Bitter, available in Shropshire and the surrounding counties. If you see it at a Beer Festival, take some. Straw blonde, lighter, if the sun catches it, at other times almost see through. Hops and Barley come to mind in the aroma, subtle fruit flavours too. The taste is almost sweet for an English Bitter, smooth and not overpowering. This is not a complexed beer, it doesn’t bite your head off with exotic overtones or explosive ingrediants, it could be called almost ’a simple taste’ because the mouthfeel is so soft. Very drinkable, I have had it at the Brewery, at Beer Fests and at a lot of Shropshire pubs.

Brandman (2623) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2011
Golden body, white head. Aroma has lenty of grassy hops. Quite pissy smells. Crisp and crunchy malty flavour, slight roastiness, fruitiness and sweetness. Long aftertaste, if it only would be little better.
