UPDATED: JAN 17, 2014 Bottle. Copper with no head at all. Faint caramel malt, honey, biscuit aroma. Sweet taste, balanced with an almost vinous sourness. A good enough beer, just not terribly exciting.

Pretty much does what it says on the bottle. A good example of a traditional bitter with a nice balance between the malt and hop flavours. Refreshing and sessionable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice coloured, reddish brown beer, a head is almost medium and blond. The nose of nuts and toffee, some red berries and dark fruits, hint of citrusfruits. Taste of nuts, quite dry, slightly wooden, some citrusfruity bitterness, also harsh herbs, slightly musty in the end. Light+ bodied, mild carbonation. The basic bitter, not more, but still there are some unique nuancees.

50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 08/2014
Aroma has nuts, some malty notes and toffee. Flavour has woody notes, butterscotch, some toffee and hops. This one has even some chocolate character. A bit different bitter – in a good way.

Taste is malty and biscuity with some cereals, vomit flavour on the palate which spoils the beer

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale brown colour. A full flavoured and well balanced bitter. Good session beer with nice balance of quite sweet and fruity malt and a little bit of hop dryness.
