"This rich amber beer is brewed with only the finest English ingredients. A prominent hop aroma and bitterness throughout is finely balanced with a full malt flavour, leading to a dry bitter finish."

vadie (514) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
Couleur cuivre pâle avec un col blanc moyen. L’arôme est doux, de malt avec un peu de houblon. C’est une bière très lisse et doux avec peu de carbonatation. Le goût est malt léger bien équilibrée avec du houblon.

TheJestersBeer (1930) - SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a clear medium copper, with a white head. Malty, slightly hoppy aroma, caramel, apricot, lightly roasted, chestnut. Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Malty taste, caramel, apricot, hops, lightly roasted, nuts, chocolate, earth, toffee. Balanced, not overly exciting but very drinkable, and charmingly British. (2013-07-09)

reebtogi (3828) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild caramel. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a light citrus and grassy hop bitterness. One of my favorite English bitters. Although, should be classified as an English Bitter.
