Bibendum (117) - ITALY - AUG 20, 2012
Ambrata all’aspetto, leggermente opaca, con una schiuma dalla buona persistenza, cremosa. Al naso si percepisce un bouquet di profumi di frutta tropicale; più in secondo piano sentori di albicocca e di agrumi. Malto appena percepibile con sentori di caramello, l’amaro prende piede verso la fine. Il palato rimane secco.

Fin (7421) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, courtesy of Craig, drank in a field or at Frank Cropredy Festival, Friday 10th August 2012 Pours hazy amber with off-white scummy head. Aroma is fruity with a tiny bit of a sour edge. Reasonable bitter but a slightly different malty and yeasty edge, maybe using different yeast and malts. Nice. A6 A3 T7 P4 Ov13 3.3

JorisPPattyn (7930) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2012
Towering fine & dense yellow head, stable over fully hazy darker amber beer. Very fruity hops’ nose, citrus, succade and preserved ginger; Bit watery-rosewater like, faint perfumey-fruity, but quite subdued. Spritzy, very slight slickness; rather light bodied. Nope. It just doesn’t work, the perfumey C-hops for a light British bitter. You get the diluted rosewater solution. A good dose of UK hops, not to forget some crisp and caramelly malts, would have been immensely preferable.

suprchunk (2250) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Dark amber, almost toffee colored pour. Fast receding, big-bubbled (juicy double?), off-white head. Little lacing. Fruity aroma mixed with an almost dishwater smell. Bubble gum and cotton candy. Sweet bubble gum flavor with a big estery presence. Juicy Fruit. No hop presence. Bubble gum and esters.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2012
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como
Beautiful amber color; medium sized head. The aroma presents a delicate fruity touch, very nice, and caramel; elegant, wonderful. Lean body, smooth mouthfeel, caramel flavor with light fruity touch; bold bitterness, and a good yeast strain.
The aroma is perfect, with some more toffee or biscuit flavor this would be a world class modern Bitter.

KyotoLefty (6465) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 15, 2012
Cask at Bir & Fud. Slightly cloudy deep copper. High, fine head. Sweaty hop nose, salty, with some thinner. Dry and hoppy flavor, minerals and light caramel. Earthy, dry, dirty, nice bitterness. Decent, but a bit too dirty for my taste.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 11, 2012
17/05/2011 Bir&Fud (tap). Spillata a pompa. Ambrata scura, densa, intensa, abbastanza torbida, con cappello di schiuma bianco sporca, poco persistente. Al naso è agrumata, elegante, morbida, amara decisa ma non eccessiva. In bocca è freschissima, equilibrata, pulita, rinfrescante. Corpo medio, consistenza oleosa, carbonazione soft. Ottima Bitter realizzata con l’utilizzo di luppoli americani. Io rimango del partito Inglese.

tderoeck (4707) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 4, 2011
31/10/2011 75cl bottle @ hotel room, Rome - BB: 5/4/12 (2011-609)

Cloudy red beer, small white head, bit stable, little adhesive. Aroma: very sweet peaches, lychees, some passion fruits. MF: good carbon, medium to light body. Taste: some sweet malts, very fruity, citrus, some exotic fruits, bit dusty, some dried fruits as well, bitter hops. Aftertaste: very dry bitter hops. I wouldn’t exactly call this an English bitter, for that the hops are way to American. How about a pale ale, guys?
