COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This copper-colored 3.6% ABV bitter features Golden Promise, crystal and wheat malts from the UK as well as touch of sugar, as is the norm with many English bitters. Hops are of the First Gold and East Kent Golding varieties, and our house English ale yeast seals the deal with a touch of fruitiness that comes out best in the cask version.

adnielsen (9108) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2014
On tap @ the brewery during San Francisco 7/7/14 beer tour. Pours a burnt orange appearance with a tan head. Kind of bland aroma with a bit of orange citrus, herbal hops, and caramel. Pretty high carbonation. Earthy, herbal, toasted malty flavor. Not offensive but could use some tweaking.

mcberko (6486) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at Magnolia, pours a clear golden orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma brings out unmistakeable English hops, English ale yeast, and crackery malt. Flavour is pretty bland, with notes of English malt, biscuity malt, and fungal notes. Smooth, dry, but pretty bland. Well-made, but nothing exciting.

Amber colored pour with a white head. Nose is grassy with some spicy and floral hops. Sweet bready malt, light toffee/caramel, and a hint of butter. The flavor is kind of bland and generically sweet. Some toffee and caramel, butter, grass, and spicy hops. A bit of a floral note and minimal bitterness.

Allesgute (9) - Alabama, USA - FEB 6, 2013 does not count
Draft at Cerveceria Mateveza. True to style but I think a little weighty on the spicy English hops. Awesome color and caramel and toffee right there to support that prolonged hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale amber pour. A bit of soft herbal hoppiness and some lightly toffeeish sweetness. Herbal and hoppy with a bit of light sweetness. A touch of chewiness and some lingering bitterness. Decent stuff.

10 oz sample on tap at the brewpub. The aroma almost has some hints of apple cider present. Light toasty malts are also there. After further inspection, it seems as though the apple quality is more of a floral thing than acetaldehyde. Transparent copper body with a smallish off-white head. Starts a bit metallic and herbal. Light bitterness follows. Becomes super toasted and cereal-like in the middle. Good malty backbone, before a fairly assertive herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Pretty good stuff.
