3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma is very floral with hints of lemon. A hazy amber pour with a very aggressive mostly lasting rocky an head. Taste is a toss up up between bitter and sour with some floral notes thrown in. Strong citrus flavor up front but finishes dry with a slight bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium-light with medium carbonation. Overall, while enjoyable, not sure that this the best example of the bitter style.

500ml bottle in an English pint. Aroma of pale and caramel malts and floral hops. Flavor about the same, with good amount of malts. Average texture, slighlty smoother. A decent beer.

Somewhat hazy amber with an unnaturally huge off-white head that looks like meringue and settles in clumps.Aroma of citrus, pale malt, and grass. Taste malty, slightly sweet and a bit bitter. Medium bodied, with really soft carbonation. Surprisingly citrusy. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml. bottle. Pours a thick white head, over a hazy, particle laden, light amber (SRM7) body.....nose is light floral, cereal, coriander....taste is light cereal malt to start leading to heavy floral tones with heavy coriander...mouth feel medium, carbonation medium. The coriander, floral tones dominate over much, making this an unbalanced and not particularly good beer which misses its style. BJCP 6/2/12/4/6

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 Aroma is citrus/fruit, malts and an almost vinous quality. The flavor is citrus/fruit, biscuit malts, spicy and, oddly for a Premium Bitter, almost a thirst quencher Funky for an ESB, pretty good.
