danielecamo (839) - ITALY - JAN 24, 2014
In bottiglia. Colore ambrato, limpida, poca schiuma come da stile. Aroma di caramello leggero, aroma di erbaceo. Al palato troviamo base maltata leggera di caramello che lascia subito spazio ad un amaro erbaceo deciso ma non sbilanciato. Birra con corpo esile e poco carbonata.

21.12.2013. 0,5l Bottle. Spesialbutikken Vaaland, Bryne. Golden colour with white head. Rather watery body. Fresh with a little more hops than expected for a weak English bitter. Good but not great.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Crème brûlée and caramel on toast set the foundation for fruity and leafy bitter hop resins in this engaging Bitter.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam stands atop the misty dark copper.
-The finish is surprisingly dry, especially since the nose is so malt and sugar focused.
-The mouthfeel is soft and natural, conducive to large gulps.
-The flavour profile is perfectly balanced.

On cask at The Market Porter, London.
