"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."

spartakbarnsley (55) - St Petersburg, RUSSIA - MAR 23, 2014
0.5 bottle from Pulkovsky Universam, St Petersburg. Classic, old skool bitter - slightly malty, with a very bitter finish. Drank this straight from the fridge, maybe it demands a re-rate at a later date. But this is definitely the sort of beer that I would prefer on tap. Memories of drinking in Barnsley before matches, when Oakwell had a proper atmosphere, and football was a proper sport.

From bottle. Appearance: chestnut with thin white head, not much head retention. Aroma: not much to the nose, slight hint of hops and slightly metallic. Taste: light bitterness, a bit of fruit and toffee at the end. Pallet: light carbonation, decent enough mouthfeel. Very short finish. A good session drink, light and not complex.

Tallboy can at The London lounge in Zhuhai, China, special econmoic zone, prefecture, co, ltd. A clear pouring lightly caramrl colored beer with a wimpy head but great, neigh excellent retention. English bitter all the way. Toffee, bitter hoppy, and the Golding/Fuggles mess, whicg is growing on me quite well.

pintbypint (2726) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 9, 2014
500ml can. Pours clear, amber coloured. Small whtie cap on top with a very creamy and tight bead. Nose has grain and caramel. Taste has caramel malts and grain. Finishes with mild malt and caramel with a trace of leafy hops. Light bodied with a soft mouthfeel. An undemanding bitter, rather plain, yet oddly satisfying as a quaffer.
