hawthorne00 (2553) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2013
Amber with a modest off-white head that lasts well. Floral aroma with some citrus and spices, caramel, light bread. Sweet with more bread than caramel, vague fruity notes, some mild roasty notes: interesting and slightly rustic malt side of thing. Dryish and quite bitter with pepper at the end. A pretty good best bitter.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Serving: 500 ml bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark amber color with a small off white head. Caramel in the nose. Tobacco and caramel on the tongue with a little butterscotch. The flavor departs quickly though leaving a very clean finish. Somewhat unremarkable but very sessionable.
