MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
This mineral Bitter shares shy caramel and oranges in an easygoing body.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the clear amber.
-This brewery’s mineral character (very hard water?) smells like morning dew on rocks.
-The mouthfeel still manages to be silky and engaging.
-Flavor profile is non distinct, both on the malt and hop front.

On cask at Ye Olde Pumphouse, Hastings.

Mad_Ferret (980) - SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2016
Keg at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan. Slight hazy and golden with a short fluffy white head. A bit weird aroma of yogurth, butter and lemon. Taste is fairly dry with lemon, oranges, faint butter, hay and dough. Medium to light body, soft carb, soft to dry palate. Quite drinkable. But really nothing special.

Keg @ Bishops Arms, Folkungagatan. Hazy amber with a small creamy white head, rich lacing. Bread and caramel malt aroma. Light watery mouthfeel. Mild floral bitter taste, bread and caramel.

On tap at Bishops Arms in Örebro. Very mild smell with pale bread and flowers. Similar taste. A bit watery. Easy to drink. Mild. Nothing special.

djoeye (3441) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2016
Look; off-white head on clear orange golden body. Aroma; fruits, grassy juicy mild hops, pale caramel malts, meadowsweet notes. Taste; wort, malts, fruity soft hops, nut notes, small notes of roasted malts, faint meadowsweet hint, moving to a malty soft finish with small hops . Palate; fresh, clean, normal body, easy to drink. Overall; no doubt this is a good brew. [tap@BishopsArms Luleå Sweden]

kidmartinek (4628) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Clear Copper with a dense head. Weak aroma of hops and grain. The flavor is all barley. It has a over-medium bite which diffuses some of this. Very natural tasting.

Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2013, day 3 - London. Pours clear yellow-gold with a white foam topping. Doughy pale bread in the nose. Light sweet flavor with more dough, light cereal, faint bitter straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild sweetness to finish, more dough, hints of lemony citrus. Just OK. Goes down easily enough.
