""A distinctively darker bitter brewed with malt made from Maris Otter barley and the careful addition of amber malt, to give a nutty flavor that supports a subtle blend of English aromatic hops.""

Bottle, best before 2015-05-31. I didn’t expect much from this and I certainly did not expect it to gush all over the place. Pours clear copper with a medium sized diminishing off white head. Nose has lots of vegetables, butter and toffee. Flavour has some toffee/caramel, butter, nuts, vegetables. There is a good deal of bitterness all the way through yet it has a sticky sweetness to it that wears off leaving a long light bitter finish. Some things work, but the flavour is close to unpleasant.

Bottle. Golden pour white head. Aroma slightly sour slightly musty malt aroma. Slight banana malty flavors. Good amount of bitterness. Finish has a nice bitterness bit I don't care for the banana sweetness that comes with it.

edsspoon (418) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle - pours light amber with a bubbly off white head which quickly disappears to a ring. Aroma of oak, acid and malts. Hints of banana and bubblegum. Taste is piney, malty with some lemon, sweet malt and light bitterness to finish. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Vighals (1165) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - APR 24, 2014
Brunorange klar med hvitt skum. Honning, malt, noe humle, og gjærlukt. Mest søtlige smaker med noe humlebitterhet. Lett. Godt med kullsyre

JanLaursen (3109) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 5, 2014
50 cl flaske. Klar ravfarvet, lille off white skum. Græset næse med lette noter af biscuit. Ikke meget spark i smagen, blød, flad, kedelig, lav bitterhed, støvet floral engelsk humle med vag citrus.

Vells (690) - LATVIA - MAR 17, 2014
Quite simple, but drinkable brew. Ok maltiness, with some hops and notes of honey. Cant call this bitter thou. Mostly sweetish with light bitterness. Bit boring, but can grab some for ice hockey

ThirstyBird (1567) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2014
Pours a clear golden yellow color with a thick off white cap. The smell is grain, mild fruit and a hint of honey or carmel. The taste is honey, fruit, some nutty character and a tart fruity ending. The body is light with active carbonation. Decent but not much more.
