Whole Foods, Bowery 50cl ($5): Pours light brown with a creamy head. Aroma is caramel malt along with a bit of hops. Taste is slightly sweet. Some bitterness. Nice mouth feel Simple, but good beer. I have probably had this before, but it was a pleasant beer to have again.

10-DEC-2012, bottle @home, from KaDeWe in Germany, present from Anton.
Pours beautifull clear amber with high very fine bubbled off-white head that unfortunately dies a little too fast. But it comes back with just a little swirling and laces the glass. Nice.
Restrained aroma with hops and caramel.
Taste is fruity malty, nuts, caramel, grape fruit, a faint spice and earthy hops.
Creamy palate, medium carbonation. Very nice brew. Thx Anton:-)

Sunday eve at Princess Louise sharing 550ml bottle with Finn. Firm white head with good retention. Crystal clear dark amber coloured body. Spotty lacing. Aroma of plums and dark caramel malts. Plums and nuts in flavour leading to a bittersweet, dried fruity ending. Clean tasting. Tasty even though it was served too cold (London, 04.11.2012).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Birthday present. Yup, ’tis a bitter and with typical bitter looks - nice chestnut body with whispy white head. Tick. Sweetish bread and butter pudding aroma with faint hops. Initial biting mouthfeel with dry malt; however, settling down to MOR bitter with no real depth of flavour or noticeable hops. Thoroughly refreshing and enjoyable without really floating my boat.

355ml bottle, Samuel Smith sampler from Bierpost.com - Nice ESB, unadventurous but very decent and layered maltiness with pleasant bittering hops and some caramel earthy nuttiness and just the right carbonation.
