Bitter aroma. Clear amber colour with good head. Bitter, but not overpowing, very nice smooth finish with a nutty profile. Medium body with low to medium carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe, bought because I’m a big fan of pumpclipparade, but despite the name, the label is tame. Pours hazy yellow gold, nice white head. Aromas of lemon yoghurt, which is odd. Taste has a weird yeasty note, some malt. Tangy finish. Not a bitter in the slightest. What does ’hand-brewed’ even mean?Are they drawing water by the individual bucket? Stirring the mash with their hands? Name me a beer that requires no human input, even if you just flick a switch it’s hand-brewed. Meaningless.
Also appears to be brewed in Gloucester these days.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance - hazy golden with a nice fluffy head.
Nose - lemon with a natural yoghurt primarily.
Taste - stale malt, more yoghurt.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a thin but tangy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - this falls somewhere between a pale ale and a wierdly unbalanced Belgian Ale.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. (Branded Drinks) It pours a next-to clear rather dark golden body with a white head. As expected, the aroma is quite bready, with toffee and a pleasant fruityness. Somehow I think I can sense the thin body through my nose. Anyway, it is thin in the mouth, low on carbonation, with a bready, toffeeish flavor, as well as a gentle, fruity touch from the hops. Not much bitterness, neither initially nor in the finish, but the hops are sure present. A true session beer meaning it’s easy to drink and low on alcohol, but it’s rather boring and there’s thirteen on the dozen of these beers. (070521)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber with a moderate head. The aroma is hoppy and the flavour has the same nice notes of aroma hops, almost like a Shepherd Neame beer. It also has notes of caramel and a nice bitterness. Light, quenching and nice without and deep or complex notes.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I’m all for a better range of English beers in Norway, but medicore bitters with "funny" labels is not the answer. Watery, some sweet malt, a little bitterness, but nothing approaching the best British bitters.
