3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep copper color, thick foamy head, fruity, nutty, has a strong hoppy accent, maybe cascade hop. The palate is sharp of bitterness. oily hops on a medium-bodied showing a nice floral hop bitterness on the finish. A very well E.S.B. crafted ale, close to an indian pale ale.

This was a poor representation of a Bitter. It tasted overly hoppy and bitter without a proper counterpoint to balance it out. A bit of malt would have levelled this one a bit. It looked tempting, but it was overly astringent, just leaving a vaguely unpleasant aftertaste.

bottle...clear amber pour with a nice frothy white head. Very faint hop aroma, I expected to smell much more. Mostly just bitter, maybe a hint of fruitiness. Good hop flavor, not sure which hops are used, not what I am used to tasting in IPA or IIPAs. This is an interestingly good beer. I like my beer bitter...

Pours reddish amber with a large, short-lived head. Strong aroma of hops, very floral. An explosion of hops that would cut your tongue away, with a long-lasting finish. Very enjoyable!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floral hops and strong malt base with a light yeasty fruitiness in the aroma. Clear brown coloured body is topped by generous, dense, pillowy, off-white, fine-bubbled head that lasts nicely and coats the glass as it recedes. Malty up front with sharp floral and citrus hops taking over before giving room back to a toasty malt character. Lasting bitterness in the finish. Malty, medium body with fair carbonation that pricks the tongue. Bottle (Rahman - Feb. 2005).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - 500ml. Dark amber body topped with a thick but diminishing off-white frothy head. Malty aroma with caramel, bready and herbal notes. Well-balanced hoppy taste with some tiny lemon hints and a lasting bitter aftertaste. Definitely the best bottled beer from that brewery. A good introduction for neophytes to the Bitter style.

500 ml bottle. Clear dark amber with a medium white head. Aroma of malt and citrus. Flavor of citrus with a strong hop bite and a strong bitter finish. I remember this beer to be way better on tap at the pub.

Amber and very clear. Moderate effervescence, rich creamy head. Very floral hoppy nose. Fresh hops explode out of your glass. Very clean beer. Beautiful stubborn bitterness. Like chewing on a bag of hops.
