i found this nice enough, a bit creamier than most bitters. in fact that mouthfeel really boosts things. else, flavourwise it might be quite similar to whats expected for a bitter.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 A serviceable session bitter. Nothing outstanding but no glaring faults either. Would be happy to have another.

KapitiCritique (345) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - OCT 24, 2010
beer engine at Hashigo Zake - Aroma: pungent barnyard but not unpleasant, rather like new hay, hints of taffy; - Appearance: light brown, not really clear, good thick head and lasting lacing; - Taste: slightly bitter; - Palate: thinish, dry, quick sour finish; - Overall: nice but not a standout

OStreetBrewery (120) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 9, 2008
Pours a clear deep amber with a creamy ’soft’ head. Aroma features earthy zesty hops, a hint of red apple and a nutty bready note. On the palate there is rich nutty malt, a little like whole grain, a powdery chocolate note, a slight stewed malt character, a touch of astringency leading to a firm bitter finish. Smart ESB, with only perhaps a little bit of malt astringency letting it down.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Hazy, amber golden with a small, off-white head. Lovely nutty aroma. Medium body, a little low in carbonation with a soft and smooth mouthfeel. Lightly sweet caramel, nuts and plenty of fruit accents, The finish is lightly bitter. A lovely ESB. 300108

bozoNZ (718) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 24, 2008
500ml bottle. Poured a nice amber/copper, lovely aged characters in the aroma - faint wood with caramel & toffee. Nice broad malt base, crisp, nuttiness with a soft drying finish if a little on the sweeter side. Nice beer.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 9, 2008
Tasted 08/01/2007. 500ml bottle, couriered from the brewery. Reddish copper, bright, with an off-white head that laces better than it stands. The nose shows off caramel, toffee, sweet tea, a little dark dried fruit and late arrival of floral esters. Very nice. Sweet in the mouth with caramel dominating but a little nuttiness showing through too. Very firm bitterness - quite herbal in flavour, almost medicinal when mixed with the strong lingering malt sweetness. Another nice Townshend beer but Id like to see the sweetness cut back a shade, to let malt and hop flavours shine through a little more.
