Bottle (500ml from Morissons):
A light mix of malts, toffee and bread. Not really much depth to this one but it’s not offensive either.
Darkish amber red colour with a pinky sized, bubbly white head that stays consistent throughout.
Malts to begin with, there is a little spice in there too and a hint of caramel. There is some fruit too and a little bread. Again the taste is pretty basic and very much like a typical English bitter.
Smooth and slightly sweet with a touch of spice. The carbonation levels are medium and the finish is a slightly dry one.

A basic English bitter here and nothing to get particularly exciting about it. It was an easy drink to consume and goes down well despite being a little plain.

Nice amber red colour and a creamy coloured head. The taste was initial bitterness and caramel, followed by crisp toasted cereal mixed with malt. A great session beer. Easy to drink.

Bov (10574) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 22, 2012
from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier - clear dark amber beer with no foam left; shy flowery and caramelish aroma; thin-bodied and pretty tasteless; subtle yet fair carbonation; gently bitter and pretty sharp finish where hints of red fruits and caramel show up - very modest to stay polite

MichaelAwesome (5846) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in light brown with small head. Aroma of toffee and honey. Taste is sweetish so you must like something like that. I do.

McTapps (5851) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Hazelnut brown in colour, no head. Taste of sweet, roasted nuts combined with some floral touch. Very sweet, hardly any bitterness to be found. I like it, though it may be boring after a while. Very quaffable.

wheresthepath (1811) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2012
[500ml bottle, gift from Lesley - cheers!] Pours a reddish-amber with a swiftly vanishing off-white head and a fair amount of fizz. Toffee from the off, with rather a lot of butter, and then some nice oaky, woody notes. There’s a little twist of lemon and a touch of earthy bitterness in the finish.. Unfortunately there’s the metallic hint of pasteurisation hanging over it, which is a shame - this could be a decent beer if bottle conditioned.

Light brown colour. Quite a fresh fruity aroma. Well balanced, quite malty and has a light sweetness. Very nice, smooth mouthfeel. Great session bitter.

Dedwoods42 (7) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2012 does not count
Lovely, sweet, simple tasting. Deep and crisp flavour that rolls off the tongue and begs you to have another bottle.

dogbomb (1070) - ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear rusty amber with a decent, but fading off-white head. Nose is impressive, not hoppy but loads of melted caramel and toffee smells. Very lush. In the mouth a different story, though you still get the caramel and toffee, it’s lost a little and it’s as lush as the nose suggests. Not much bitterness to balance against that and it all peters out a bit too sharply... Could do with a bit more bite.

BlackHaddock (4978) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
From Jan 2009: Compared to its slightly weaker cask version this is a whole lot better in my eyes. Clear 500ml bottle with a long life left, I poured it into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ pint vase. The body was a clear, bright amber. On top sat a good off-white foaming head, this stayed for a good while before fading away leaving lacing on the glass. Mild toffee aromas hit my nose, followed by a more normal (for UK Bitters) hop and malt smell. As the beer warmed it got sweeter but it started out with a bitter hop flavour which I enjoyed. Throughout it had a dry aftertatse. Couldn’t call it full bodied, but it was no lightweight either. A long way from a great Bitter but overall about average for a bottled one.
