3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I bought this bottle totally off the label. "Bailout Bitter." Love it. Poured into a stein, golden to copper color, transparent with a quarter inch of head that quickly sank into the beer.
S - Malty smell, wet hay and honeysuckle.
T - Slight sweetness and quickly followed by a moderate bitterness. Well balanced.
M - Light body and moderate carbonation that dances in the mouth.
D - Very drinkable and sessionable bitter. Nothing fancy, just a good beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
1 litre swing-top bottle poured a golden color with modest white head settling to fine lacing. Aroma is citrus and grain and some floral hops. Taste is lightly sweet with a moderate hop bitterness in the finish. Body and carbonation are adequate as is the mouthfeel. This is a decent attempt at an English bitter, quite a smooth easy drinking beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1L pot-stopper bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a thick, persistant snow-white head which leaves a coarse lace. An early tartness gives way to a medium to light-bodied, hoppy golden ale. Hops are mostly pine resin and malt is dough, caramel and cardboard. Pairs well with a variety of foods, but especially pasta.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
1L swingtop from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy amber gold with a foamy white head. Light aromas of floral and fruit. Med body. Frothy carb. Flavor is floral, light stone fruit, touch of citrus, light malt, and something that makes me think of matches. Guess the main thing is the hop and malt, which is always followed by a herbiness til the next mouthful. It’s quite dry, certainly bitter. I’d say they nailed the style. If I’m being a bit harsh, I think it’s because I keep thinking ESB, which it isn’t. Nice shot at a bit of over the pond.

1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had a sampler glass at the brewery. Appearance: clear orange, no head at all. Aroma: like wet dog. worst smelling beer ever. Palate: dry yet smooth, if that makes any sense.. Taste: very bitter. Overall kind of bland. I can only taste hops, nothing else.
