COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle from cellar door (December 2013). Hazy amber/copper, small tight head, toffee, toast, mild earthy/fruity bitterness, medium body, smooth texture, easy drinking. V. good.

On hand pump at The Grain Store. Pours a clear copper with a thin creamy head and mouth feel, mild hop flavours and no real bitterness. Not bad at all.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Cask @ Royal Albert. Amber and bright. Loose, bubbly head. The aroma is quite toasty with an integrated moderate diacetyl...very English in character, old school English at least. Toasty, buttery with juicy hop & acidity in the finish. A mix of brown bitter and juicier southern special bitter.

Great local brew from Newtown NSW. Great on tap but tasted in 500ml bottle. Great deep red brown colour, a light (but bit too) fizzy gas, no head, but great English ale taste and palate. Yum yum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stew41 (1722) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2013
On tap @ Frankie’s Pizza. Seems slightly forced as a ’real ale’ but there’s no doubt the minerally toffee and hints of sweetness point to the real deal. Fizz is high and it does block the flavour somewhat, but i cant help but like it.

ComradeK (978) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2013
640ml bottle. Pours a clear medium amber, with a small off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves good lacing. Floral and fruity hops notes mix with light toffee and caramel malt notes. Floral and sweet citrus hops up front lead into toffee malt and fruitcake in the mid-palate. Candied fruit and floral hops make up the finish. Not the most complex beer around, but a fairly solid bitter.

gnoff (7664) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
Draught, part of a tasting paddle, at Young Henrys, Sydney, on July 11, 2013.
Said to be 4% ABV from one of the brewers.
Clear copper to brown color, tan head. Fresh, hoppy, malty, sweet taste. Smooth low co2 mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Herbal, hoppy, malty, sweet aftertaste. Sweet, malty scent.

Gramoit (351) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2013
Was not impressed with this at all, Lacking flavour. It is still fairly drinkable, however not one I will seek to try again.

cgarvieuk (13921) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 19, 2013
Bottle at home ... copper ... thin white head ... soft sweet blackcurrant ant soft fruity toffee malt ... nice soft fruits ... i like this ... this is what id expect from a bitter. Id love to think its served on cask at the brewery ... but i like the bottle and its a damn site better tan quite a few brittish bottled bitters

TimE (3091) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 8, 2013
deep mahogany color. Full bodied, a bit too malty and rich. Not so balanced or interesting.
