Boring - no impact - low malt (which I prefer) but no hit of hops to perk it up - watery and kinda tasteless. English bitter. Meh.

Stuedmaster (208) - Vista, California, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Golden coppery amber pour with a foamy off white head and decent lacing. Aroma of bread, caramel, honey, grass, somewhat nutty. Refreshing taste of moderate sweetness and lightly bitter. Medium to light body with a slick texture, lively carbonation, lightly bitter finish. One of the best British bitters I’ve had, would repeat.

Ernest (6198) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, orange), with a note of metal, hint of diacetyl. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. Quite metallic in the nose, which is unfortunate since the hop scent is pleasant. Not as metallic in the mouth, though, and otherwise ok.
