adnielsen (9460) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2014
On tap in Santa Rosa. Pours a hazy reddish brown appearance with a big tan head. Toasty caramel malty nose that is awfully floral / soapy. High bitterness. Toasted grain, toffee flavor with lots of potpourri. Too soapy and bitter for my taste.

Very dark red. Sticky head. Definitely to style of a bitter. Aroma is spot on. Really nice. Great sugary caramel malt backbone. Nice aromatic bitterness and cough drop finish

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
On cask at Toronado San Francisco, pours a clear copper with a small bubbly beige head. Nose is traditionally English, with notes of English malt, some coppery notes, and toasted rye crusty bread. Flavour brings out a mix of English ingredients and American-heavy hopping, with notes of toasted bread, piney hops, and some metallic notes, with a considerable astringency. Extremely drinkable, despite the over-the-top hopping. More abrasive than a traditional bitter, but well-executed.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013
On tap at Toronado. A finger-thick off-white head sites in top of an amber body, nice curtains. The aroma is light and easy, with some fruits and some bread. There’s a pleasant and subtle bitterness in the flavor, dealing with the light malty sweetness. Some bread. Caramel hints too. Medium body, very soft. Lasting bitter finish. Certainly a nice one, maybe deserving a higher rating. 130804
