COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic English Bitter holding 4.8% ABV. A light copper colored beer, with a spiced aroma with notes of English aroma hops and ale malt. The flavor is light flavored containing notes of flowers on a discrete malt background. A characteristic dry beer with low carbonation, and a distinct and long spicy bitterness. Guest brewed by the President of the English Beer Academy, George Phillskirk, who of course is from Burton-on-Trent.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2006
Draught at the brewpub.
Clear orange colored, small white head. Mild hoppy and slightly herby aroma with cheesy tones in the background. Dominating hoppy grassy flavor with nutty and yeasty hints. Pricking on the tongue and sharp in the mouth, reminds me of a hoppy pilsner or a mild pale ale. A bit watery and not very interesting.

On tap @ the brewpub
Dark yellow, no head to speak of. Nice crisp bitterness; goes great with the relatively fatty food served at the pub. Flavour and aroma is unremarkable.

madsberg (9651) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2005
Draught @ the brewpub: Golden/orange coloured. Clear. Small off white head. Light hoppy aroma. Some herbs, light fruity and malts. A bit vague. Fruity and fresh flavour. Some vague hoppy notes. Again a little vague and boring, but easy to drink. LIght bitter in the end. Medium bodied.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2005
Orange colour with a small white head. Malty and fruity aroma with a light hoppyness. Light malty flavor with a faint fruityness, then a sharp unbalanced bitterness sets in and finishes quite dry.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2005
Pale clear amber appearnce, no head. Sme bitterness in the end. It chould have been served from cask. Very uninteresting and boring. Might contain fish, hope not.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Weird fruityness in the nose, notes of bubblegum and winegums, quite artificial. Golden colored, with a small white head. Flavor is light malty, some weak fruityness, and light hops, very boring.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2005
Draught at the brewpub. Pale amber coloured. Weak aroma of fruits with notes of plastic and minerals. Similar to the aroma of bland English bottled bitters. Light flavour with some fruitiness. Rather sweet with some faint grassy bitterness in the finish. Light bodied. The only good thing about this beer is that it is fish-free.

Draught at the brewpub. Dark golden colour with a small white head. Malty fruity aroma and a light metallic fruity taste. Medium body and a light bitter dry finish.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - OCT 18, 2005
(on tap)Deep orange, clear with a disapearing, beige head.Very fruity nose, fruitesters that is, not any distinct fruitflavour. rather high carbonation for a UK style bitter, takes some fine notes away. And, yea it had to come some day; the beer is served very cold, too cold for this beer I should say. The finish has a good hoping; the (lack of)minerals makes them tart, though

joergen (19657) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2005
Draught at the brewpub. Clear amber coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts with notes of fruits and hops. Flavour of malts, cardemom, peaches and hops. Dry hoppy finish. More hoppy and less watery than usual english bitters.
