3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with ClubGonzo and Veitafan. A proper British bitter with a clear brownish amber colour and a small off-white head. Nice aroma of caramel, apricot, leather, toffee and some hops. The flavour is less fruity with a larger malty touch and leather, wort and wood. In the end I sence grassy hops. Mouth feel is easy and smooth, and has a light to medium bitterness. An easy-drinking and decent bitter.

Copper clear, beige head. Smells of malts, caramel, hints of citrus and english hops. Moderate sweet, clean and crisp, nice malt flavors. Moderate to medium bitter, some resins. A very refreshing session bitter - nice hops. Very drinkable

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5l bottle. This is a crystal clear golden-brown colored one with a small bubbly quickly sidesticking white top. It’s light floral on the aroma with traces of caramel, metal and some old sweet fruits. Not to exciting to be honest. It has a decent amount of flavor for being such a little guy. Average on the carbonation and light watery on the mouthfeel. Soft sweet malty flavors, light soapy-bitter with more traces of old fruits and a light dry-bitter branch-like thing in the finish and aftertaste. Nice caramel all the way. Actually not that bad at all this bitter. 16.02.2013

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma leggero luppolato, corpo medio nonostante i 3,7 gradi e leggera carbonazione, inizialmente si sente caramello, malto e poi un amaro equilibrato ma persistente.

Amber, fizzy head that doesnt last. Not much action in the glass. Sweet malt, toast, bread and soft (maris otter?) hops in the aroma. Caramel malt in the middle, surprisingly big bodied. Short finish. Pleasant and very drinkable.
