MatteoD. (137) - ITALY - SEP 26, 2013
Bottiglia comprata da Auchan Mestre. Bella schiuma cremosa e mediamente fine, che scende velocemente e con effetto sapone, bel colore ambrato e abbastanza limpido, aroma floreale, maltato, al palato corpo leggero e media carbonazione con note di pane tostato, noci, datteri, con finale amaro e secco abbastanza pulito e piacevole. Una discreta bitter.

BeerandBlues2 (9585) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours clear dark amber with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is earthy, minty, and woody hops, toast and cookie malt with notes of dates and figs. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, supporting crisp malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

WillemsUrenkel (472) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2013
Stylish clear 0,5 l glass bottle, optical like a Whiskeybottle. A light amber in the glass, mighty light tannend head, nice CO2 pearls. Intensive malt and mash on the nose. Starts bitter, burned grain, intensifies in the following tims. To the end hopy, cold black tea with orange. But not my cup of tea.

kidmartinek (3615) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle at TJís 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 Iím learning compared to American beers. More flavor and character and less alcohol. I like that in a beer and this one excels.
