OKBeer (1170) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2005
500 ml bottle. Golden bronze colour with a fully lasting rocky and frothy off-white head. Floral and woody aroma with caramel notes and metallic hints. Light caramel leading to a fruity, piny, and somewhat minerally bitter finish. Medium bodied, juicy and refreshing.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2005
Clear orange-copper, weird clumpy head. Uncooked spaghetti aroma like a German pils, and not much else at all. No hop, no yeast character. Juicy, icing sugar, sweet malt, tobacco-ish hop flavour, a bit of creaminess and loads of bitterness. A bit too fizzy. Tastes like a cheap German pils, really. This used to be my all-time favourite bottled British bitter that you could get around here, but in the last few years Iíve only ever had a string of bottles in bad condition. Now I finally get one in good nick and itís just not very good. Weird.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 9, 2005
Pours a golden amber with a very large full head. Smells delicious, very flowery. Quite sweetish to taste, but a nice bitterness to offset and I those Fuggles hops are definitely evident. Very nice, went down too easily. (Though quite different to the Cask version)

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 29, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2005 Tasted 29/11/2005. 500ml bottle from Malthouse, Wellington. Orangey-gold, not quite bright, with a tight off-white head that laces nicely. Punchy toffee nose at first, showing off the malt, with a flowery citrus aroma coming through later. By god, this is a bitter alright but it is just right. Lovely balance between the long-lasting, prickly, grassy, hop bitterness and a mild caramel underbelly through the middle. Nice dry, lightish mouthfeel but well balanced with a subdued carbonation level. Lives up to its name. Great session drinking, shame I couldnít have another...

Pours golden copper with creamy white head. Good aroma with slight initial bitterness which increases towards back of tounge. A good full flavoured bitter.

50cl bottle from Morrisons. Orange beer with thin white head. Earthy hops, some lemon rind. Yeasty in mouth with more earthy hops, dusty lemon. Nice in mouth, good earthy hop finish. Prefer it on draught with a sparkler in Yorkshire

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2005
A Mes rate: Fairly typical bitter. Nothing overly special in any department. Fruity and grassy. Spruce? Plenty of hops and a little too much of the iron filings in there for my liking. LLLLLLLong bitter finish

oh6gdx (20239) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2005
Bottled. Copper coloured, nice foamy white head. Aroma mainly citrus fruits and hops. Flavour is like a standard bitter, fruity hoppy. Aftertaste is kind of dry and fruitish hoppy.

Bottle: Amber coloured, thin but firm and extremely long lasting off-white foam; big herbal hoppiness and many citric notes in the nose; strong hoppy and fruity taste; very long lasting, dry aromatic hoppy finish with some tart fruity notes; well balanced, well hopped, well, well, well..........
