kidmartinek (3507) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle at TJ’s Sports Bar & Grill in Ao Nang, Thailand. Pours a clear dense amber. Aroma of English malt, toffee and bitter hops. The aroma and flavor are both rich and complex and weigh in impressively for a 4.7 bitter, as is the case with most English bitters I’m learning compared to American beers. More flavor and character and less alcohol. I like that in a beer and this one excels.
