I was really looking forward to that one but got a bit disapoointed as it did not develop that aromas and deep taste I would like to see from a bitter. Beside this, that beer is a bit sweetish and more malt dominated. Quite a good one at all but not exactly something I would call rocket science.

Beer pours out of the bottle in a clear amber colour with steady low head and thin body. Aroma of mlt and bitter hops. Taste of bitter hops, metall, citrus, grass, malt and vanilla. Thin and light watery bitter finish. Average but drinkable.

Bottle. This is really bad bitter. Its basically bottled bread. Not worth the coin.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium head. Aroma is pretty skunky (clear bottle?), light caramel, some malts. Taste - grainy, roasty bitterness, caramel notes. Thin body, pretty bland.

"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.
