A modern take on a classic English style Best Bitter featuring Topaz, Galaxy and Stella new varietal hops from Australia. Solid malt backing with a long bitter finish.

mcberko (12439) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2016
On cask at Young Henry’s, pours a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma and flavour is pretty bland, with biscuity malt, maybe a touch of English hops. Clean but boring as hell.

sm89walt (1905) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2016
On tap, The Shakespeare Hotel, Sydney. A deep and ruddy Amber with a small but lasting and lacing off-White to light believe head. Mid-fruit aromas that border of tropical with gentle pale malt and nutty characters. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and a moderate length goth and intensity finish. Had a few of these over the course of an evening and it made for a great session.

Dervock (850) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2016
Can - pours amber with big creamy head. Aroma is floral hop, caramel malt, biscuit and fruit. Bit of caramel malt up front then quickly fades to a very light malt finish. Palate is a bit light.

Night_Cap (54) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2016
Hand pump (at Keg and Brew). Amber with a slight haze and an off-white, frothy head that lasts perfectly. Aroma is of floral hops with caramel, biscuits, apricots, gooseberries and some light buttery notes. Flavour is a mild grassy hop bitterness with zesty marmalade, biscuits, caramel, light toasty/nutty notes and a dry earthy finish. Light bodied with very soft carbonation, a watery texture and a good length finish. Amazingly well balanced and highly sessionable bitter!

KeefOz (1427) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2016
BB 28/08/2016. Poured a crystal clear amber with a one-finger off-white foamy head that diminished slowly and laced very well. Carbonation moderate. Aroma subtly of slightly sweet malt. taste slightly sweet with a hint of spices and low bitterness. Light to medium body. Crisp, smooth and slightly dry with a bit of an unpleasant tarty finish which is a bit off-putting. Ordinary.

Lonick (1143) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 30, 2015
Cask @ The Foot of the Walk, Leith. Pours amber, thin thite head. Nose of nothing just getting nothing from it all. Taste is bitter lemon slight malty thing going on, unpleasant shampoo aftertaste.

Jado (748) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2015
375 ml can. Red-brown body with a tight white head. Not much on the nose - biscuit mostly with some pine and flowers. Taste reveals a bit more with a grassy bitterness and a touch of pepper overlaying the malty sweetness. Lingering finish with a light biscuit aftertaste. Ok but a bit subdued overall.

ANZUShophunter (247) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2015
Missed this on tap several times so I bought a can to try it. Pours reddish amber with minimal head and only modest aroma. A nice bitter base from the hops that lingered on the palate. A decent beer.

Niksko (571) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2015
Pours dark amber with a fluffy off white head. Nose is pretty muted, a little caramel and some stone fruit. Flavor is lots of caramel, orange, a little stone fruit, and then a very very grainy, malt based finish with a decent dose of bitterness. I don’t have much to say about this. It’s clearly a ’crowd pleaser’ beer that’s meant to appeal to a less adventurous palate, and that really bores me. Two strikes Young Henry’s.

hawthorne00 (3315) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2015
Can. Amber with an off white head. Flabby aroma of biscuit, caramel, pears. Thinnish, moderate carbonation. Some passionfruit, vague citrus and pepper and a decent bitter finish cheer things up fair bit after the underwhelming aroma. Not bad.
