fidelis83 (2003) - 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.

HonusWagner (1624) - Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2014
I’m excited to up my top 50 Bitter count to a whopping 2 with this one. It’s just sorta there, though. Mostly a sweet honey maltiness with a lively carbonation. Smell slightly skunked hops, a touch flowery. Kinda what I imagine when I think "bitter" except carbonated and a bit less hoppy than I’d like.

Bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit ordentlicher weißer Schaumkrone. Geruch fruchtig, gehopft, getreidig, Äpfel. Geschmack sehr malzig, fruchtig, hopfig, etwas nussig, getreidig, süffig.

sulawang (641) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
Visual: Pours clear medium orange with a decent creamy head, a small layer of retention, sticky lacing, several clustered fast streams. Nose: hops, sweet toffee malts (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: smooth, light fizzy, soft crispness Mid-palate: (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) toffee, light roast, clean grainy barley malt, grassy, orange, light metallic Finish: mild citrus-soft bitter hops, lingering bitter hopped finish. Summary: A clean, easy-going, sippable yet well-bodied brew. Not outstanding but decent.

AbbeyRoade (400) - Missouri, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bitters aren’t my favorite type of beer whatsoever, but this is a good specimen of the type of beer nonetheless. Mild bitterness but not so much that it is difficult to drink. Faintest hint of hop flavor and wee bit of sweet/resinous notes from that to balance the rest of the bitterness out.

Lowenbrau (2150) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 19, 2014
500ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 19-11-2014.
BBD: Feb 2015.
In short: smooth pale ale.
Pours quite clear deep golden with little white head. Short head retention, some lacing. Malty, caramel, liquorice aromas. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is smooth, malty, fruity, sweet notes. Quite well balanced and enjoyable.

Bottle. Asda. The Beer God that is Bob Hunter, before he founded Ossett brewery, used to sell, on average, 36 gallons of this a day at the Beer Engine, on Wakefield Westgate. I think he’d struggle managing that, with this...

jordanrich (9) - - NOV 17, 2014 does not count
A malty, bready aroma with touches of toffee and caramel slinking in. Colour is amber, really crisp and clear with a thick head that lingers like crazy. Taste is light initially but gathers body toward the bitter end. Feel is slick, somewhat thin even but warming. Nice beer.

SlackerMads (1701) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Clear reddish orange with a medium sized off white head. Light buttery, toffee, nuts, metallic, flowers. Overall it is low on flavour and what is coming through is not too appealing, though it gets better as it warms up. Light/medium body, watery texture, light sweet and medium bitter. Dry and quite bitter finish.

Hermod (3453) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2014
50cl bottle. Bbe April 2015. Pours dark amber, thick off white head. Toffee, caramel, nutty aroma. Crisp, high drinkability. Toffee and caramel, biscuits flavor, happier finish. Excellent stuff. Could drink this every day.

hohops (357) - Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Appearance is amber and crystal clear, half finger fizzy white head. Aroma- lots of toffee and caramel, malty, bread, yeast hints, dark fruit notes. Taste- slick mouthfeel, lots of toffee and caramel- like a caramel biscuit. Orange peel. Plenty of chewy malt, carbonation to ease things through, bitter warming finish. Lovely.
