On tap at St. Bock. Pours a clearish amber colour with modest-sized white-ish head. Aroma is earthy hops and caramel malts. Flavour is very richly malty with toffee and fruit as well as a nice earthy hoppiness. Average body. Moderate bitterness in finish. Pleasant.

Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 07/20/2012. Pours a cloudy iced tea color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of biscuit malt, hops and fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, ripe fruit, piney hops and a little spice. The finish is malty with an earthy and fruity aftertaste. Good ESB all around.

Bottle, shared at Midsummernights beer tasting.
A bit hazy, amber body, large offwhite head. Aroma is very hoppy; grass, flowers, with a good malt backend. Complex yet balanced taste of biscuits, pine, grapefruit and tea. Ends bitter with taste of pepper.

Hazy deep amber beer. Frothy white head. Slightly soft palate. Lovely fresh hops. Sweet pineapple, marmalade orange - slightly bitter, pine. All on a decent malt base. A very English name and if all English bitters tasted like this you would never get me out of the pub!

22oz bottle from 3F, This is a confusing beer, as strong bitter could be used as a weak IPA to me, and this one smells great but is more attenuated and subdued, strange for 3F

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Refrigerated bomber from csteele2144 poured into a shaker. Pours clear copper with finger and a half off-white fluffy head. Little lacing, medium body, low carbonation, and caramel malt and hop aroma. Taste is caramel malt, spicy grapefruit, hint of pine, and nice bitter finish. Leans toward an IPA, I would love to try this back to back with Fullers ESB. Three Floyds has produced another great beer.

Another great three Floyd's. Pours a dark copper from a bomber. Very smooth and easy going. Big fan of this English bitters.

Extra in a trade from Darkobs...thanks! Slighty cloudy brown. Persistent head. Caramel malts on the nose. Sweet caramel malts with nice hop balance. Full, round palate. Nice, very drinkable and smooth. Not very complex but solid. Much sweeter and fuller than a traditional English ESB.

22oz bottle I picked up at DLD 2012. Porued a relatively clear copper-brown color with a foamy medium-to-large sized white head. Aroma was toasted malts, almost like fresh grains on brew day - really enjoyed that moment I opened the beer. The flavor is a bit middle of the road - but to be expected - sweet toasted malts, bitterness.
