A smooth and fruity beer, bursting with refreshing flavours of citrus fruits combined with rounded, malty notes. This crisp and citrussy beer is brewed using a single hop variety, Earlybird to give a light malty beer with fresh floral aromas.

bhensonb (14092) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 15, 2013
Bottle from the Cromwell Road Sainsbury’s in London. Pours copper amber. Aroma of light roast malt and floral. Med body. Flavor is light roast malt with some sharp bitter. Could be a mix of citrus floral. Too sharp for floral I’d think. It’s not tasteless for sure. Good session ale? I really like the way the bitter builds in the finish.

0,5L bottle. Sweet mead taste. Too watery. I wish more taste and stronger , robust for ale.

bdunhill (255) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2013
With a malty town this English Bitter is simple yet flavorful. It appears dark brown in town with a simple small head. It has a simple taste that lingers and leaves you coming back for more.

Cereal, malty nose with a hint of pepper. Pours a perfect amber with a cream head. Flavour is bitter and malty but let down by a watery finish and a lack of any kind of distinction. A handful of hops would help.
