Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, herbal hops and touches of fruit. The finish is sweet with a nutty and malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nitro tap @ the brewpub. Clear medium copper amber, dense immobile creamy nitro head. The nitro pretty much kills any nose on this. Light caramel character, interesting vegetal/capsicum hop character (Progress hops-- a first for me I believe), mild bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, toast, orange marmalade into a bit of grain, herbal, grassy hops in there, spice notes as well. Taste was a mix of spice, yeast, bread into some caramel, slight toast with some slight citrus, finishing bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Nuts and apricots blend into this Bitter’s slender mouthfeel, as mild caramel invites more depth.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy slice of foam sits atop the shiny dark copper.
-Why are they serving a Bitter on nitrogen when they have an unused handpump?
-This is easy drinking and super clean, which is perfect for the style.
-Hops were a tad too muted for my tastes in the style.
On tap at the Milwaukee Avenue location.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Revolution Brewing, Milwaulkee Ave, Chicago. Poured a clear chesnut brown with a long living frothy off white head. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with a big malt liqourice hoppy palate with a short bitter finish. Served warm, just as it should be! Shame about the name though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft on tap at the brewpub for the wedding of Mr. Nobled Squirrel (Chicago, IL). Congratulations, Brian! Pours a rich deep orange amber hue, mellow glow with a rich nitro driven head that cakes and laces well, sticks around bigger. Good deep orange glow overall is striking in the darker light, sunset fire and British Pub regal. Aromas are gentle lemon and florals, mellow biscuit. Touch of toast, gentle toffee. Bready malts, earthy hops offer a touch of spice. Kiss of orange peel and mellow lemon. Initial is lighter end, a touch of body though still light. Gentle earthy hops, touch of grass. Mellow bready and biscuity malts. Touches of mellow bread, grainy malts, touches of silky Nitro additoons slip in. Middle is a bit bland, bready and biscuity, touches of earthy and floral hops. Backend and finish is mellow and a bit sweet, silky, touches of dry and spicy earth hops were secondary. Gorgeous pour, a bit bland and sweet at times. Could use a touch more dryness. Meh. Odd Nitro choice in my opinion.
