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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear amber with long-lasting head. Aroma of grains with a bit of a skunkiness underneath. Round palate which leaves a bit of stickiness in the mouth and a hint of bitterness. No particular flavor jumps out. It’s a fine beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear, amber. Lots of cream-colored head with very fine bubbles. the hops used gives a rather funky initial aroma, but either it dissipated or I mostly stopped smelling that about 5 minutes after pouring. Light body and lively, a lot of carbonic acid on the finish. Not a ton of flavor, sadly.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, a gift. Dark amber, sparkling, clean and clear, small white head. Aroma is malty, a touch of metal and sick, slightly floral. Body is quite light, very foamy, low-ish carbonation, tacky. Taste is watery, some sweet malt, slightly tangy, soft bitterness. Maybe even the softest brett character. Insipid, but not as bad as I was expecting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I did not really taste the difference at all. Bit straw, some hops and few moments of caramel combined with a decent bitter ending and a bit of spruce in the finish. Not bad but not really classy.
