Whitewater’s most popular brew this aromatic russet ale is brewed with the addition of Torrified wheat and roasted barley. Rich fruitiness is followed by a gentle hop flavour leading to its smooth succulent finish.

Bardzo dobry bitter, Zroznicowany zwlaszcza zapachowo bo wyczuwa sie tu przynajmniej kilka odmian chmielu. Bursztynowy kolor i wielka slimakowa piana ktora odstaje ponad szklanice sporo. Smaczne gozkawe piwo, takie jak powinien smakowac dobry Bitter.

A light opening, giving way to strong coffee flavour with a bitter, but pleasant nutty finish. Aroma of coffee, nuts and well roated hops.

Bottle, 500ml. Pours very appealing dark amber, with sumptuous finger deep head, which persists. Sweet malt and hops on the nose, and similar with caramel on the palate. Overall a very decent ale.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 [Cask at GBBF] Clear pale amber. Grapefruit aroma with a touch of grain. Medium dry with clean, rounded mouthfeel. The aromatic grapefruity hops gives it an American feel. Sweaty aromatic finish with good bitterness.

Cask-conditioned at the Crown in Belfast. Pours a bright orange with virtually no head (it is cask-conditioned after all). First impression from nose and first sip: a very palatable bitter. Aroma was light - mainly earthy, English hops. The flavor is excellent, balanced towards the bitter side, with a decent malt presence and flavor of bitter hops. Quite flavorful for a bitter (perhaps more appropriately described as a Best Bitter, but not quite strong enough to be an ESB). The finish is medium in body and bitter (though not incredibly so). Overall, very drinkable.

Well, you’ve said a lot about the mascots, Harry, but what about the players?
They won’t be a factor, Norm. Trust me.

Cask, The Crown, Belfast. Cloudy somewhat gloomy appearance, think it was brown, but hard to tell under those gas lamps...Some nice fragrant hops in the aroma, with caramel malt and nuts too. Similar themes resonated in the flavour which was surprisingly complex. Dryish, gently bitter finish. Really quite good.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2009
2009-05-20. Crisp dark amber body with a good off-white head and excellent lacing. Pleasant aroma, malt is dusty, sweet caramel and light dry toasty notes, like a bag of fresh malt. Grows as the glass warms and gains nuance. (6+) Flavour is similar, malt has dry earthy notes over a sweeter malt base, touches of sweet sugar. Pleasant bitterness throughout. Average plus body serves the beer well. (3+) Subtle but flavourful, very drinkable. Excellent session brew. Bottle at Bierhaus, Cork

Table next to us having a chat with a three year old girl:
"Whats that?"
"Thats beer"
"Why are you drinking beer?"
"Because I like it. ... I might have juice later."

Braudog (5574) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2009
From a bottle at Bierhaus in Cork. Ruby red with a big top. Very sweet caramel aroma. Nutty, and almost brown sugary, this carries with a sweet essence. British style. (#3667, 9/13/2009)
