JPDIPSO (5667) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Golden to amber in color. Huge light cream colored head that gradually settles. Light caramel, mild floral hops and hint of vegetable scents. Light caramel and hint of spice (with cinnamon and nutmeg) in the flavors. Light fruit syrup in the background. Full feel, but the taste seems watery. 8/10

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.

gramity (1625) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2011
Poured a hazy yellow gold color with a large white head. Sweet malt aroma with a light fruit component. Mildly sweet malt flavor with some hops included on the finish. Light-medium bodied.

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.

TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JUL 24, 2011
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.

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. Itís quite dry, certainly bitter. Iíd say they nailed the style. If Iím being a bit harsh, I think itís because I keep thinking ESB, which it isnít. Nice shot at a bit of over the pond.

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.
