COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
Brewed using the highest quality barley grown on UK assured farms. Golden in colour with a light, dry palate & a fresh, fruity aroma. Perfect with bangers & mash or roast beef.
Matured live in the bottle for a fresher taste. Can be enjoyed cloudy, but ideally pour slowly leaving the last few drops in the bottle with the yeast. For best results store upright & serve at 10-12°C.

Ferris (3899) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle - Malt forward but subtle with some grains. Clearish copper with a nice foamy head. Quick hit of bitterness and some fruit, spice and a nice mild bitter finish. A bit of a hop bite. A good bitter, that actually delivers on the bitterness. I would order again.

ciaranc (847) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 4, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a foamy white head which doesnt last. Blast of phenols on the nose, with some straw in the background, not great. Very watery body. Dry mouthfeel. Not much happening in the flavour, tastes like a pale lager. Some honey in there too. Finish is non-existent.

lembeek (143) - ITALY - DEC 7, 2012
Giallo-ambrata, velata. Schiuma abbondante, persistente, cremosa. Aroma di agrumi, malto e note erbacee. Gusto molto bilanciato. Finale secco. Corpo leggero.

rosenbergh (6696) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2012
500 ml bottle. L2138. BB 17/05/13. (Alko) Helsinki, Finland.
Cloudy (poured with yeast) orangey golden colour with small frothy white head. Citrus and exotic fruits in aroma with some hoppy bitterness. Nice. Flavour is a bit more boring with some mild bitterness, some hops but not as fresh as in the aroma. Not the most inspiring Bitter around. Drinkable.

Amber color with creamy white foam. Malt aroma. At taste is light sweet with little bitterness at finish, good balancing.

mikkopen (828) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2012
500 ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden orange colour, medium-sized off-white head. Sweetish, malty and fruity aroma. The flavour is dryish malty, with some fruity notes and a grassy-hoppy finish. OK.
