(bottle) Hazy, orange-golden colour with a mid-sized off-white foamy head. Mildly sweet malty aroma with yeasty notes and a tinge of caramel, accompanied by herbal and subtle fruity hops. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light bodied with a soft carbonation. Cara-malty and bready taste with herbal spice; moderately dry bitter-sweet finish with spicy hops and caramel. Quite flavourful. 17.XII.10

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500mL Bottle poured at RIFT English Pale Ale tasting. Big rich strong graham cracker aroma, with lots of malt. Pours a darker gold, with white head. Flavors are solid...the palate comes across lighter, but still holds some solid malt and slight oaky-like bitterness. Balanced. Solid. And probably my favorite of the evening,.

Clear orange gold body; medium dense khaki head. Very drinkable. Dry, grainy, hoppy in only a British way. Medium body. Good stuff.

Bottled. A copper coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. Decent leafy hops and tinny malts. Easy drinking and sessionable. In fact I drank this beer in a second. An old fashioned recipe but done well.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2011 Like all English Ales I have tried I would really like to try the cask version as I am sure it is different. I know bitters are supposed to be fairly easy drinking and this is clearly a session ale it just was a bit watery. Serving: Bottle

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a one inch foamy off-white head that left heavy sheets of lacing. Nice bready and biscuity malt with just a touch of hops. Some huskiness as well. Really flavorful for such a light beer, dry bready and toasted malt. Finishes with a hoppy snap and some lingering maltiness. Light bodied and crisp for a Bitter with fizzy carbonation and a very clean finish for an ale. A very nice beer. Iíd say that itís a bit overpriced (here in the US), but at least it tastes good!

Golden orange with a lasting, one finger white head. Light and sweet bready, biscuit malt aromas. Some good initial sweetness, bit of caramel and toastiness leading to a lingering dry grassy bitterness and a slightly floral note. Light to medium body, quite a lively mouthfeel.
