Beerheart65 (1135) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2013
Deep amber, clear, 2 finger off-white head medium long and leaves lacing. Medium strong aroma is malty: bread, bit caramel, bit dark fruit. Soft feel and carbonation, medium to light body, dry, just slightly bitter, dry finish, malty. Quite basic bitter, tasty and easy to drink but lacks "that something".

visionthing (3889) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2013
50cl bottle from Varnaveien mineralvann. Pours clear amber with an off-white head. Lightly malty aroma with caramel and notes of fruits and hops. Hints of roasty notes too. Sweet and lightly malty and fruity with mild hoppy bitterness in the finish. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Quite well balaced and easy to drink. Light to medium body with average carbonation. A bit weak in flavour and slightly boring, but still refreshing and nice enough.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Nice enough but too many similar beers mixed in with some great APAs and IPAs weaken the style perspective. Dark amber. Light head. Creamy caramel flavour.

reebtogi (5080) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
500ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and caramel with some pine. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness up front, finishing with a piney hop bitterness. Light bodied with some decent carbonation. Another decent English bitter, but nothing special.
