Copper brown pour with flecks of ruby. Frothy head clings to the glass. Malt, fresh bread on the nose. Well balanced and somewhat fruity, leading to a slight toasted malt flavor. Some bitterness on the finish.

Ah this is just a brilliant bitter! Copper in colour with a longering off white head. Smell is light toasted malt with mellow citrus zest. Taste is brilliantly balance malt and sweetness which becomes lightly bitter and long lasting finish. Lots of taste for the strength and as others have said, one that you could get trhough a lot of in an evening!

At last. Amber colour with a good fluffy white head and plenty of sparkle. Gentle British hop aromas of orange and mandarin malt. Lovely stuff. Itís got a lighter, spritzier citrus flavour profile than I was expecting. Twinges of bitterness and a long finish, it just screams session.

Rating #892 - January 9, 2014. First #showerbeer of 2014. 500mL Bottle from Coop. 4.1% Dark brown pour with a foamy tan head with decent retention. Aroma is caramel, honey, malt. Mild carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Light bodied. Taste is heavy on roast malts, mild caramel sweetness. Finish is dry, but well balanced. Nicely hopped. Can see why this is so highly rated. Drinkable, and decent character for 4.1%

DandyWolfFloyd (623) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Aroma - the aroma is of caramel, bread, and toast. Very pleasant. Appearance -the body color is a reddish amber with a thin white head that quickly thins out to a nice little sliver. Taste - really pleasant taste a light sweetness and light bitterness that are like electrons floating around a nice nucleus of malt richness. Palate - the body is medium, the texture thick, the carbonation is average, and the finish leaves a nice long toasted malt and mild sweetness Iím really becoming an English bitter fan. Just plain enjoyable sessions. I could drink this over and over.
