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 (14396) - 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.

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

Had a pint from a firkin at Toronado in SF. Solid, nice hoppiness and bitterness. Nice real ale candidate.

On draught at Beer Revolution in Oakland. Red-brown, clear, head doesn’t stick around for long. Dry hop taste, bitter, but has some body to it. After the initial hop shock its quite smooth. The aroma is good, hoppy hint of toastiness, and some citrus zest.

Room temp hand pumped. Smells dank. Dark copper red. Tastes malty but luckily a nice hop kick balances it out ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
