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

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.

Aromna has quite alot going on what with hops and citrius fruits kicking about. Appearance gets points for the cool bottle. taste is nothign special as i would expect from a bottled bitter. im still not a big fan of this on cask, so i didnt expect much but better than expected.

jonas (5847) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2005
Nice grass and pine hop aroma. pale amber, lacing creamy head. Lightbodied butterscotch malt topped of with a good portion hops. Herbal pine aftertaste. Nice enough.

vanvenlo (1319) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2005
18 Dec 2004 - Sweet malt but simplistis hop aroma. Orange-red colour, good lacing and nice head retention. Light malt flavour with plenty of hops. Bitter finish with lingering hop malt aftertaste. A bit too bitter for me.

I can’t say I’m really much of a fan of pasteurised bottled standard bitters but this is pleasant enough. Some hops come through but there’s also a metallic edge I often find in pasteurised beers without enough punch to hide it. The cask version is, of course, better. 500ml bottle.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2005
Bottle. Citric hops, balanced malt and refreshing bitterness. Lacks the fresh vitality of the cask version but a decent bottled bitter all the same.

Grass and bread (or even brioche) in the aroma. Fine head lasted quite well and colour was eye-catching. Fruit and sweetness in the taste. Bitterness I thought was just right. Also liked the old-fashioned shaped bottle. So it doesn’t affect the taste, but I believe it’s all part of the experience of enjoying a pint of bitter.
