Bottle from the local grocery store enjoyed at homeTheFoamhead (260) - Vught, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2014
Pours amber clear with a big beige head. Smell of bread, hints of diacetyl and butterscotch, hint of toffee and hops. Moderate sweet, heavy on the toffee, biscuit malts. Moderate bitter, quite plain. A very malty brew
A slight sour note, caramel and cinnamon hints, a light body and a subtle hop bitterness. All rounded up with a sweet finish.
Nice British Bitter with a subltke christmas note. asedzie (835) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle Pours deep ruby brown with off white head, some lacing. Nose has bready malt, caramel, fresh dough with some light touches of lemon and herb - mild aroma. Flavor is light for the style, with raisins and wood, some light toasted notes, followed by a smooth flush of hoppiness that has herbs and subdued orange peel. Nice tangy lightly bitter lingering hops in the finish kicks this up an extra point. gizmo_ber (221) - Steinwenden, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2014
Pour is copper/red with minimal head. Taste is malty with hint of raisin and fruit. Light bitterness. Not bad, not overly christmassy. gopherfan99 (2000) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2014

Aroma: Lightly biscuity/caramel malt base; slight cider/white grape fruits; a little raisin; tobacco leaves. Appearance: Lightly carbonated copper body with a skin of bone colored head. Flavor: More fruity up front; raisin/biscuit comes in thereafter; slightly bitter finish with tobacco. Palate: Light body, slick texture, very soft carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: Slightly more complex than most bitters I’ve tried, or maybe it’s that my bottle is reasonably fresh for once. This grew on me.
