Maybe it’s a Yorkshire thing - but this is exactly how I think bitter should be. Aroma is subtle but hoppy. Taste is clean, balanced. Mouthfeel is fantastic - exactly right, perfect carbonation, slightly oily. This beer is everything in moderation. Unflashy, and maybe old fashioned, but drinkable. Also the bottle is cool.

Very much floral, earthy notes. Herbs and a mild, herbal bitterness that fades away slowly. Taste of wood and hay towards the end. A very full and pleasant bitter!

Solid bitter. Malty, earthy, floral... just a bit of bitterness. Really quaffable.

Couleur du cuivre foncer avec une petite robe beige. L’arôme du malt et des céréales. En bouche il y a du malt et pain avec un peu d’houblon dans la finale. Très buvable, mais pas trop forte.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Classic British pale ale - bitter. Gorgeous to watch, crystal clear amber with white lasting head. Malty and hoppy aroma. Taste is smoothly malty, sweet malts, caramel and some bitterness from the hops. However is not hoppy as the American Pale Ales. Still, a good classic bitter!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber colour, thick white head that lasts a fair while. Fresh, fruity smell, if I were to say which fruit it’d be apples.
The taste is sweet with fruity notes and a bitter finish. I’d say it’s an easy-drinking beer compared to some pale ales I’ve had. Medium-bodied and mildly aromatic. Smooth mouthfeel, maybe a bit watery.
Overall nice beer, nothing stands out as amazing about it but definitely nothing bad at all either. I’d definatley have it again.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle pours mid amber with a beautiful white head that shows decent retention. It smells fresh as a daisy, bright and slightly fruity, bit of grass. There’s a bit of fruit on the taste and some sweet caramel and a metallic note. Really soft mouthfeel but a bit thin and watery, carbonation is bang on. Decent bitter finish This may be a technically great beer and it tastes fine, it’s just not that exciting to me.
