A Northern English style Bitter characterized by a rich creamy head and working class body, robust flavor and a bright amber color. This beer will fly with R.A.F. Wings.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Draught @ The Wharf Rat in Baltimore Amber color, creamy white head, lots of lacing. Nose of light grassy citrusy hops and some sweet malts. The flavor is tangy, moderately bitter. Too much citris character to clash with the malts.

TheBeerGod (6029) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Draft at Wharf Rat on Pratt. Rusty gold with a tall creamy white head. Nose is flowery, lightly hopped and semi-sweet. Taste is malty, sweet, flowery, fruity, and has some light hops. Body is creamy and smooth with mild carbonation. Finishes with more sweet malts, flowery and slightly spicy hops and fruit notes.

hopscotch (10663) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Nitro... Hazy, deep amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, almost beige head. Impeccable retention. The nose is greatly diminished by the nitro infusion, but as the herbal, earthy beer warms there are gentle reminders of leather, butter and grapefruit. Good balance in flavor. Well-bittered for the style. No sweetness. Medium-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. Lengthy, crisp, bitter finish. Great cream ale!

tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Very creamy and delicious. One of the better ones available at the brewpub. Easy to drink in everyway. A wonderful beer. Cream is the appropriate word.

BigSkyman007 (202) - USA - SEP 11, 2004
One of the nicest textures I ever had in a beer. Dark brown, almost opaque color, with a tannish creamy foamy head. Could taste a hint of hops, but moreso dominated by maltiness. Smooth drinking, and a heck of a lot better than boddington’s.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 22, 2004
The brewery’s take on Boddington’s. The beer focuses on mouthfeel and forgets to employ flavor. Not bad. But sure as hell not "robust", as the commercial description indicates.

Braudog (6385) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2003
This is a very dark amber beer with a big creamy head. It's milky smooth, heartily malty and wonderfully robust in the tradition of the best British bitters. Beautiful.

guzzler67 (1670) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 5, 2003
On a nitro tap, a beautiful looking pint. Big head, lacing that lasted until the end. Subdued nose of malts and grain. Smooth, velvety taste. Pleasantly bitter aftertaste.
