BrewGoblin (282) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
Copper tan with a quick to vanish head. A really nice Bitter from a great brewery. Lot of malt aroma and taste from this lil’ doggy. Nuts, caramel, salty pretzels, toast and honey scents. Taste is the same but you really get the classic British hop bitterness going on, unaggressive but pleasantly floral, piney and woody. Great for an ol’ timey session.

exeter (287) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
This beer poured a nice copper amber colour and formed a nice off white head that left some lace. It had an aroma of hops, malt and caramel. The flavour was a taste of hops, malt, caramel. A great Canadian bitter, well done

Hidden_Pooch (295) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. This is such a easy drinking bitter, could actually session it. Excellent malt taste with hints of toffee, bread, and caramel. The hop flavour has hints of herbs and is earthy. I don’t find it very bitter, but it is a very good beer.

tdubs92 (16) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Slight biscuit/sweet aroma. Two finger head that diminishes slowly. Hazy bronze colour. Nice blend of hops and malt. Exceptional SOB.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
341ml bottle. Pours a dark crimson/brown with a foamy off-white head that dissipates slowly, medium-strong retention. Aroma is mild toasted malt, hints of toffee, cocoa. Hop presence is significant, giving the bitter character, but the breadiness of the malt is what makes this beer. Well balanced, medium bodied ale that is easy to drink. Cheers.

JulienHuxley (3019) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2013
On tap at the pub. Nice amber gold pour with lacy white head. English hop aroma, quite potent, light caramel but mainly hoppy. Flavor is quite hoppy as well, solid malty backbone but still almost overly hoppy for the style (I’m not complaining). Good.

BeerandBlues2 (9599) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle at Calgary International Beer Fest. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is biscuit and cracker malt, minty and earthy hops, peach and pear fruity esters. Flavor is malt with medium hops and bitterness, light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Tap at some bar in Calgary that served crappy food. Thanks to a bitterly cold evening we didn’t want to explore the area so just kept ordering different items hoping to find the one they do well. But we never found it. Unless you count the beer. Like this one, which wasn’t much to look at but featured a variety of hoppy and malty notes in perfect balance.
