fidelis83 (2137) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Pours a clear dirty gold with a 3 finger off white head that has great retention. Aroma is planty and citrus hops up front, some toast, tree fruit, nice acidic goldings hop presence. Flavor is toasty, cereal and nutt malts, some caramel, nice crisp mineral and apple notes, bready and lightly fruity yeast. Light body, with surprisingly creamy feel on entry, light, but blanketing and a hair sharp carbonation. Really nice well sorted bitter.

Fatehunter (1614) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Pours a half finger of head on a cloudy dark straw body. The aroma is lots of dark fruits and grain. Really nice. The taste has a mild sweetness to start, then lemon, slightly metallic, bitterness to finish. The texture is crisp with soft edges. Great smelling and tastes good too.

I think I got an old bottle thatís been exposed to light. This tastes heavily skunked. Iíll have to re-rate this.

thirstyrabbit (1362) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle. Orange/amber body with a small head. Fruity aroma with some red apples and ripe pears. Nice. Sweetish taste with more pear and sweet apples, later biscuits. Aggressive carbonation for the style. This one has a quite distinctive taste and I like it.

PorterPounder (6062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl. - Beer Stop - 500 ml bottle - sparkling medium copper pour, silky white head, leaves a light film of lacing. Aroma has some light ginger-like spicy notes, some faint citrus bitterness. Flavor has a nice subtle citrus bitterness to it, some faint vanilla accents, some light cake mix sweetness and a hint of nectarine fruitiness. Mouthfeel has a pleasant spritz to it. Been a while since I had an English Bitter.

Clean copper color, medium white quickly disappearing head. Aroma of malt, caramel, hops. Dry taste with gentle sweetness and mild bitterness. Watery body and average carbonation. Very simple taste, but also very drinkable and refreshing.
