I tasted some fruit and a little malt with a alright bitterness at the end, a little too thin for me. A nice session beer but I prefer Old Hooky

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew poured a Medium sized head of fine to medium sized white colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body was a slightly hazy carbonated light brown colored one and the aroma was a mild malt hop one with a mild bitterness to it. The mouth feel was smooth and slightly tingly. The flavor was that of malt hop mild bitter and was clean crisp and remarkably good. Overall, it is a very pleasant drinkable brew.

Bottle. This beer poured a small sized white head that was smooth and creamy and contained fine-small sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The aroma was malty, lightly hoppy and sweet. The flavor was lightly bitter at the start and finished lightly hoppy. The mouthfeel was very smooth and this was a light-medium bodied beer with fair lacing. This was a very smooth and easy drinking Bitter.

A dry bitter. This is an interesting combination of flavors. Worth giving it a shot. Not one of my fav's, but worth a try.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Copper with a small fizzy white head that quickly diminishes. Cidery nose with caramel hints. Cidery metallic flavor with some cloying sweetness, diacetyl, and a touch of bitterness. I'm going to have to go back to England with my more mature beer palate and see if bitter just doesn't travel well, or if it's really as boring as this.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Amber, easy drinking, session ale. Very light weight in alcohol but probably hitting a little above its weight in flavour and aroma.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Slightly oxydized, but otherwise an okay session beer. A little bit toastier than normal, and lighter in color. Brown body is pleasing to look at, and mitigates in its favor. Capital Brewing in Wisconsin had tried to go into the import business and brought in Hook Norton, among others. That venture failed, so they'll stay a bit hard to get in our area.
