theprof (375) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2015
A pleasing surprise since classic bitter is not the style in vogue. Subtle soft sweet aroma. Dark chestnut body. Good lacing. Full bodied but balanced taste. With acid hop working well against earthy malts. The hops last on the palate. A solid reliable session bitter. Just what the world needs.

BeerViking (3842) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2015
Cask at the Magpie, an excellent example of a crisp and malty best bitter, with a little floral citrus and caramel on the nose and a refreshing dry-bitter body.

harrisoni (16705) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle from Real Ale Store Newark and drunk at home. Clear amber russet with a thin lasting beige head. Rather a malty best bitter. Very light bitterness on the finish. Earthy hop aroma. It’s rather a good malty bitter. I like it. Reminds me why I love English bitter.
