Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, thick foamy white head. Aroma is slightly spicy, a bit murky and with crispy hops. Flavor is bitter, somewhat creamy and with a decent body. Not too bad, but also nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before end of Dec 2008, drank before end of Oct 2008. Poured into a UK pint sleeve glass.
Pale orange, dull yellow, not quiet clear, a bit of a haze. Some of the yeasty sediment might have crept out during the pour. The head was well formed and stayed throughout the drink.
Yeast and hops made up the aroma, what else should there be in an English Bitter?
The taste was very hoppy (for a UK beer), this gave the beer an extra dry and bitter feel. Pleasant more than overpowering.
The hoppiness and dry feel stayed into the aftertaste. A good bottled beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy (yeasty?) orange amber with an out of control head and fluffy lacing. A bit much, makes me wonder if this is a good example of this beer. Taste is understated bitter caramel malt. No change through the finish. Not one of the better RCH offerings.
