I'm not a great fan of the "bitter" style, but this is a good beer. Amber colour, few head. Fruity (apricots and peach) aroma. The flavour is malty, quite fruity, with a good, but not too much bitter hoppy finish.

.5l bottle, thanks BalkanMac. At Belgrade tasting. Pale gold and brown, tiny head. Golden grains, very clean and flavorful. Great bitter body. Excellent for style. Quite sweet, lovely.

Pours clear light amber, almost no foam. Nose of grassy notes, smoked bacon and malts. Mouth of bitterness, malts, a bit watery but nice feeling of smoked bacon mixed with malty notes. Good beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really nice, softly textured bitter. Lovey fresh hops, a bit tangy, citric, with a definite bitterness, Lots of flavour for a beer with only 4% alcohol. Smooth and uncomplicated, but somehow, really works for me.

beeebon (139) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Not bad as far as bitters go. Itís got some malt and various citrus like fruits in the taste, just a shame itís a bit thin and watery. Definitely drinkable but nothing to get excited about.

500ml bottle in Cot Valley, Cornwall. Clear darkish amber, small head retained. Nice sweet malt/toffee aroma. Flavour classic bitter, good dry hoppiness, decent bite, bit grassy, decent firm carbonation but not too much. Solid ale.

a_cross (525) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Clear chestnut brown, thin white head; hoppier than expected - grapefruit, lemon alongside solid biscuity malt; nice dry, bitter finish; a clean and well-balanced session bitter.

andrewturba (920) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 2, 2013
Pours a hazy amber colour with a very thin white ring around the glass. Aroma malty, strong(but not overpowering) caramel, fruity, and sweet. Flavour is caramel, mild bitterness, zesty citrus, and a light malty sweetness giving this a great balance. Low carbonation as expected per the style.
