Surprisingly easy to drink, yet so bitterly like a true Brit. Lovely finish when the beer goes down the palate.

English Premium Bitter clássica, linda cor âmbar com espuma relativamente persistente aroma levemente marcante. Ideal para comer com carne de caça ou aves silvestres.

GreatDane1632 (683) - USA - DEC 9, 2014
Rated based on notes taken 22 Feb 2012 -- I believe the description of this beer is a little over-zealous. Tasted like a dry stout.

TheCaptMatey (172) - Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Poured a dark amber colour with a thin white head that left little lacing. Aroma is of light fruity and herbal spice malts. Flavor is of caramel, peppercorns, and malt,

angelkostvo (791) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 13, 2014
Ruby colour, small beige head. Aroma of caramel, slightly fruity, biscuit. Taste is light sweet, a bit sour and slightly bitter. Light body, slick texture, average carbonation.

reggiedunlop (3403) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Pours a clear ruby color with a medium off white head. Aroma has light fruity malts...almost a hint of cherry. Flavor follows suit and adds a layer of caramel and earthiness. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a slightly dry earthy/fruity finish.

Drank as a draught. Smooth and easy to drink. The taste could be a bit stronger. Beautiful head.

Calisky (1424) - ALSACE, FRANCE - OCT 29, 2014
Couleur ambrée sombre, mousse qui disparait. Nez caramel, sucre candy notes fruits noirs. Gout bien malté et caramel, notes fruitées. Bien balancée et ronde en bouche. Une premium bitter comme j’aime!
