Gary (1662) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2015
500ml. drunk from a pint glass. Pretty much a stereotypical Yorkshireman on the bottle label. Madonna herself is/was a fan of this beer when she was pretending to be British . nose of lemon hops , toffee , grain. large white head above orange beer. the flavours are toffee malts , dry ,spicy lemony hops , chewy . An easy to sink kinda ale that is better cask, but a solid bottled beer too.

Not quite as nice as on cask not quite as cramy or smooth but a good bottled beer non the less something intrinsically Yorkshire about it smoothnand well balanced more carbonated than the cask version.

Fatehunter (1647) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Pours a half finger of head on a cloudy dark straw body. The aroma is lots of dark fruits and grain. Really nice. The taste has a mild sweetness to start, then lemon, slightly metallic, bitterness to finish. The texture is crisp with soft edges. Great smelling and tastes good too.

I think I got an old bottle that’s been exposed to light. This tastes heavily skunked. I’ll have to re-rate this.

thirstyrabbit (1433) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle. Orange/amber body with a small head. Fruity aroma with some red apples and ripe pears. Nice. Sweetish taste with more pear and sweet apples, later biscuits. Aggressive carbonation for the style. This one has a quite distinctive taste and I like it.

PorterPounder (6197) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl. - Beer Stop - 500 ml bottle - sparkling medium copper pour, silky white head, leaves a light film of lacing. Aroma has some light ginger-like spicy notes, some faint citrus bitterness. Flavor has a nice subtle citrus bitterness to it, some faint vanilla accents, some light cake mix sweetness and a hint of nectarine fruitiness. Mouthfeel has a pleasant spritz to it. Been a while since I had an English Bitter.
