3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"Beer does not need to be any more complex than this..." I’d love to be able to say that after tasting this beer, but that is not true. This is a perfect example of a nice bitter. Perhaps the low alcoholic level must have turned the raters off, but this beer has the right balance between that "sweet bitterness" and the malty biscuits, both on flavour and on the aroma. It has a lovely colour of copper. Looks, smells and tastes like a bitter one would have with mates at the pub after a hard day’s work at the farm.I find the overall rating above highly unfair for this lovely, simple bitter.

Slightly nutty and a decent balance but really thin in the palate. Boring, supergeneric bitter.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Clear, chestnut-amber coloured, stable white foamy layer, mild sweetish malty-fruity nose, supported by a light hoppy background; mild to moderate sweetish-bitter flavour; slightly increasing bitterness in the fruity finish, that shows traces of dark malt in the aftertaste.Regarding the low alcohol, a fine beer...

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2012 RB says this is my 100th from England. Bottle, clear glass, by 30APR13. A beautiful gradient tawny body with a frothy beige head. Taste is essentially dry, some caramel with light toasted grains and earth, light but defining bitterness. Light-medium body. Clean, smooth, simple, and light enough in flavor to invite a few additional pints.
