TheJester (1920) - Peterborough, Ontario, - JUL 20, 2007
500 mL can. Typical malty/spicy aroma of an English bitter. Copper-brown with some head; not a lot, but it lasts. Tastes like it smells, with the addition of a nice bitter finish. Real swing from sweet start to bitter finish with this one. Smooth. Not as tinny as some canned English bitters. Good session beer.

Generic bitter - pleasantly sessionable, quite earthy in the body with pleasant bitterness but little of excitement going on.

"can be a little off sometimes (used to be in a clear bottle...don’t know about now) but it was a nice change of pace. mild, but a complex mix of malty flavors and just a touch of hops."

Pours a clear amber color, topped with an average white head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel and fruit. The taste is malty with moderate bitterness in the body. Decent.

Caramel, fruits, bread and some grains in the aroma. Amber body with a off-white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Overall a decent Premium Bitter, nicely balanced.

digopossobon (295) - MACAE, BRAZIL - SEP 21, 2014
6ª cerveja da noite, gentilmente oferececida e recomendada pelo proprietário do Lapa. Extremamente aromática, herbal. Creme denso. Cor acobreada. Lupulada pra caceta e seca. O sabor lembra a ameixas. Que presentão!!

koshack (119) - POLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Koror herbaciany, drobna biała piana. Dośc szybko opada. W zapachu wyczuwalna chmielowa goryczka, biszkopty i karmel. W smaku dużo więcej goryczki i karmel. Nie jest zalegająca. Całkiem przyjemny ESB

bobroman (439) - Torun, POLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Pleasant floral hoppy aroma with some hints of caramel. Small head disappearing to ring. Clear amber colour. Pleasant hoppy bitterness in taste with appropriate malty and caramel background.

500ml bottle. Dark, caramel colour. Average head. Aroma of malts, herbs and caramel. Taste was very dried out and a little empty. Some nutty tones and bitterness in the finish.

Piwo koloru herbaty z ładną, obfita i trwałą pianą. Aromat średnio-intensywny karmelowy z delikatną nutą ziołową. W smaku wyraźnie goryczkowe (goryczka długa, pozostająca), obecny też lekki słodki karmel.
