johndoughty (3956) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle. Bronze with a clear appearance. Some maltiness and well bottled. As it says on the bottle a good session beer. It does what it says.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Aroma of interest: powdered fenugreek, Sugar Puff. Skimmed, burnished bronze. Opens with thistle-like intrigue, closes with soap. Pecan and caramel along the way. Fine balance and drinkability. More flavour than should be expected from a bitter labelled best. Pleasant creamy mouthfeel. Good sappy hop. Bottle from Adderscum Co-op.

Hanoi (379) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle: Nose is yeasty with tangy lime biscuits and malt notes. Taste is malt, cereal, leading to a well balanced hop finish with some citrus to lift the caramel. A very good session beer.

mile (2963) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle. Light amber, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and light fruitiness, light grassy hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel - light toffee and light fruitiness, light grassy hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, light caramel and light fruitiness with faint roasted malt, some grassy hoppyness. Nice dryish 3,8 bitter with decent hopyness.

Jimthechap (1620) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 31, 2012
Slightly hazy copper-amber colour with the remnants of what was a white head sitting thinly across half of the top of the beer. Evident carbonation. Aromas of tamarind, sweet toffeeish malt, herbal bracken, and ANZAC biscuits. Full mouthfeel and then a harmonic mixture of sweet maltiness and good puckering bitterness. Excellent flavour for a beer of session bitter strength and good length. Thoroughly enjoyable and would be ideal for a session. Well done chaps.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2011
500ml bottle at home on 19 June 2011, best before December 2011. Amber colour. Slightly toffeeish malt aroma. Regular UK bitter flavours on the palate - earthy malt and tangy hops. Respectable enough but Im not generally convinced that these low ABV standard bitters are ever at their best in bottle - I may want to down a few on draught in a session at a pub but at home Im generally looking for something more suited to savouring than quaffing. Flagged for re-rate from cask some time.

RichardGretton (4239) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2011
Bottle. Bronze beer with a strong head. The aroma is fruity and hopped, and the flavour is dry, bitter and hopped. Overall a nice English bitter.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2011
Bottled. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is honey, nectar, some resiny notes as well. Flavour is earthy, honey, some nectar and mild resiny notes as well. Rather wooden aftertaste.

kwik-lime (1293) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2011
On tap at The Cock in Roade, Northants. Great session beer, easy drinking and well balanced with a nice fruity hint and a pleasant dry bitterness. Good beer.
