50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 04/2014
Aroma is fruity with toffee, some vanilla and hay. Flavour is somewhat fruity with toffee, some English hops, nettles, hay and woody notes. Hints of vanilla and nuts in the finish. Good, more fruity than bitters usually.

Bottled, shared by Ot the Explorer. Clear amber color, short head. Aroma of earthy and flowery hops, not really outspoken, english yeast notes, hint of butter, caramel, toast. It feels for me these kinds of beers should be better drank from cask. Soft bitter taste, slight sweetness. Typical English bitter, hard to distinguish this from other bitters when it’s the only bitter in a tasting.

Bottle conditioned. My 500th rating. Golden body with a short lasting white head; gentle carbonation; deep earthy malty aroma, with a spicy edge; rather thin in the mouth, with sweet malts and some citrus, then a long smooth bitterness develops with a resinous quality, leaving a dry and chewy finish, and pleasant warming senstation in the gut. An excellent ale.
