500ml brown bottle. Deep gold in colour, nicely formed tall white head with a rocky top.. Nose has grains, light caramel, light grass and orangey hop. Taste - good UK type malt up front, citrus and grass flavours. Some late hops in the back of the throat. Light in body, soft carbonation. Decent.

500ml bottle from SPAR at Blue Dolphin caravan park, near Filey. Amber colour, white foam head and bready malt aroma. Taste is malty and fruity with earthy bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry bitter finish. Quite OK.

Itstasty (49) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Cask. Off white head which sits well. Light copper coloured body. Has a fruity edge for a bitter. Not really a bitter for me. Light and uneventful.

ozzatoadisback (91) - ITALY - AUG 2, 2016
Light amber colour, transparent. Thin white head recedes quite quickly but still leaves some lacing. Aroma has a caramel malt base and a nice, delicate fruitiness (red fruits). Taste follows the aroma, again with a light caramel malt base and pleasant fruitiness. Moderate sweetness and bitterness, finish is slightly on the bitter side (with a tea-like note). Light body, light crispness, easy, maybe a tad too empty. Ok overall

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2016
500 ml bottle, from Matkroken Stokka. BBE 07/14. ABV is 3.7%. Copper colour, moderate white head. Aroma of grain, caramel and dust. Light bodied as expected. The medium dry flavour has first a slight fruitiness which makes the beer quite drinkable, followed by some grainy notes and a hint of toffee. Tolerable hops in the finish. Not too bad.

Not very special. An ordinary bitter without any special characteristics to make it memorable brew.

Mortlach (1956) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 31, 2015
Cask @Le Bon Bock (Rome). Light golden appearance with a little white foam. Aroma is fruity with grassy notes, malt, biscuits. Flavour is light malty with a little bitter end, so "English". Low body, watery, low carbonation. As delicate as silk.
