An exceptionally fine balance of malt and hops give this beer a long dry and extremely satisfying finish.

Very average but easily drinkable. The pint I had here was a bit too cloudy for me. If I have read the other ratings right shouldn’t be.

allmyvinyl (9448) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 18, 2014
Cask at The Old Black Bull, Preston. Pours clear amber, thick white head. Light malt aromas, light citrus and biscuit. Taste is creamy and smooth, but eminently forgettable. Solid session bitter, nothing more.

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2014
NWAF 23 Jan 13. Gylden. Nesten ikke skum. Søt marsipanaroma. Smaken vassen. Kjedelig. Tørr ettersmak.

Nothing special unfortunately - very bland in taste. Drinks easy like lager. Surely, Pendle can show more pride than this!

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Oily, soft and malty, this standard Brown Bitter does share some leafy hop notes, but only after sweetish honeyed malts get tangled in minerality.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the misty amber.
-Light burnt sugars appear also in the finish, alongside the leafy bitterness.
-Light oranges show up here and there.
-This remains drinkable; it’s simply a forgettable version of the style.
-This is not nearly as engaging as their Black Cat Mild...

On cask at The Live and Let Live, Cambridge.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013
Cask @ The Clarendon Leicester. This is what some people would describe as boring brown bitter (bbb). But actually is is quite a nice example even if not exactly earth shattering. Better than say a Doom Bar. Looks exactly how you'd expect a bbb to look. Aroma is slightly Easter biscuity- by which I mean lemon biscuits like my mum made (de-lish they were). Tastes slightly malty but with a slight hoppy citrus bitterness. Slightly twiggy but alreet tha kna's. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
