3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bitter ale inglesa detentora de diversos títulos em concursos da Gra-Bretanha. Ótima cor no copo, vermelho escura, com aroma caramelado, lembrando toffee e pão. No paladar, desce com bom corpo, com amargor característico, balanceado pelo malte. Gosto de toffee, pão, amargo refrescante. Álcool levinho no fundo. Retrogosto maltado, após um final agradável. Boa cerveja!

A bitter wich flavour resembles more to a brown ale, but with a strong astringent that claims its true origin.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (from K Citymarket Kivihaka, Vaasa). Deep copper colour, mediumsized off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, fruits, some floral notes as well as wood and mild syrupy sweetness as well. Flavour is fruits, wood, some syrupy notes as well as caramel malts. Wellbalanced and rather nice. Gets better as it warms up a bit.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle served cellar cool in a chalice. Lovely tawny amber colour, with a good off-white head. Malty aroma, with a nice nutty toffee flavour, incorporating some rich tea biscuit. Medium bodied, slick texture, gentle carbonation. A little hop bitterness in the finish. For 99p at B&M, I wasn’t expecting greatness, but this is one of those self-effacing English bitters that manages to be more than the sum of it’s parts. I’m looking forward to the next one.
