tom10101 (2218) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle (500 ml). Clear copper with a medium fully lasting off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is of caramel, earthy notes, honeyed malt and floral notes. Taste is of caramel, toffee, earthy notes, honeyed malt, floral presence and light bitterness. Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Not the most aromatic bitter, but it’s tasty and so easy to drink. Pretty solid for a bottled Bitter.

Hop_Hedonist (178) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2014
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 (161) - 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.
