Flaska till tulip. Ganska ordinär bitter. Bra beska men inte så spännande i övrigt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DIBBLE (85) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Dark golden ale with short lived white head. Sweet malt aroma. Malty, floral and zesty flavour with a subtly sweet undertone. Wish I didn’t have a stinking cold while drinking this.

Vladivostok (308) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2015
Don’t usually like low gravity beers in bottles but this one stood up remarkably well. Mid amber in colour with a decent clingy head that lasts. Very smoky aroma with a burnt toffee flavour. Good lasting finish and overall a well made and thoroughly drinkable ale. Would be better without the fizz though...

The_Osprey (2912) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2014
Gravity cask at Jerusalem Tavern, Farringdon. Dark amber orange, still, slight haze, small foamy off-white head, full lacing. Aroma is soft, malty, shortbread biscuit. Body is light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is smooth toffee, musty hop character, seeded bread, some tangy under-ripe fruit, soft bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable. A good bitter.

sebletitje (7411) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle sample @ Il Pretesto, Bologna. Orangée, col fin blanc. Arôme est malté très anglais pâle, rétro noble également anglais avec un petit rétro rappelant l’écorce d’orange. Palais est léger malté sur un biscuité agréable. Amertume accompagne le tout et offre des notes fleuris et un houblonné UK noble. Fruité modéré sur agrumes mais également un côté plus doux orange. Bitter correcte mais pas la meilleure venant des îles britanniques.

cervmagpt (352) - PORTUGAL - OCT 21, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 8B). Bottle 50 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: malt aroma background with a caramely and dried grapes profile. mild hop and roasteds notes. APPEARANCE: copper color and translucent. slight ivory thin head with low retention. TASTE: roasted notes noticeable with some low maltiness and faint floral hop notes. high bitterness that lingers well beyond a not totally dry finish. PALATE: low body with low carbonation. OVERALL: a best bitter bitter that lacks a bit more of esters, malt complexity and body.
