weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2008
A good bitter but not as nice for me as some people obviously find it. I was bloody thirsty when I drank this too, should have been right on time but not too thirst quenching. Decnent it was though. Cheers.

kwik-lime (1461) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2008
Not quite sure it lives up to its impresive reputation but a very good bitter nonetheless. Flowery aroma, fruity malty taste with just the right bitterness.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2008
Bottle (500ml). Poured copper with a dense, frothy, off-white head which wad mostly lasting. Aroma was of butterscotch sweets with lightly fried butter, caramel, marmalade, sweet biscuity malts, and some earth notes. Flavor was quite earthy with a good hop bitterness, butterscotch sweets, biscuity malts, toffee, and some marmalade. Medium bodied with medium bodied, dry/creamy mouthfeel, somewhat watery texture and a short finish.

LordCrabapple (109) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2008 Aloit! Aloit! Hop-bomb alert. Ouch! Quite bitter, but smells of pure malt. A fine traditional English ale. Ignore those fools who say ’Prefer cask version’. These people lack education. What! Difficult to swallow the whole bottle. Prefer it from cask.

shrubber85 (8787) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2008
Bottle. Creamy butterscotch malt aroma - very nice. Clear amber with moderate head. Creamy butterscotch malt and dry hoppy flavor. Light bitter aftertaste that lasts long after swallowing. Moderate carbonation. Really didn’t expect much but this was a very nice surprise. A very nice bitter - strong diacetyl and bold hops.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 13, 2008
