tap - This brew has a rich caramel aroma with notes of citrus. It tastes of sweet caramel malt and moderately bitter hops with a subtle citrus character. It’s medium bodied, soft on the palate, and easy drinking. Very good.

35,5 cl bottle @ tiong, packaged 22.05.2014
Aroma has gooseberry bush and caramel malt. Also cereal. Flavour has fruity hops, cereal, gooseberry bush and some grapefruit. Also some sweet caramel malt. Could be better fresh. This is over seven months old but still the hops are way more strong than in bitters usually.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of the best American made bitters I’ve had. Malty and light at the end. Biscuity with some light caramel sweetness at the end. One of three I managed to try at Blind Tiger in 2014.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shiny gold-copper color with a large, pillowy off-white head. Toffee malt in the aroma with a nice dose of earthy - herbal hops. The flavor is soft and chewy English biscuits with a touch of caramel paired with a well-balanced level of h e bal and earthy hops. The bitterness level is just right for the style. The is a slight nutiness as the beer warms. Medium body, super smooth and soft on the tongue making it almost cask-like. Overall, this is a fantastic Bitter and is extremely well put together and sessionable. I like it quite a bit and wish it were available regularly in 6-packs!
