A rich aroma of hops and malt develops a full texture in the mouth. It has a long, deep, bitter-sweet finish. Without doubt an exceptional best bitter.

Dashimus (235) - London, Greater London, - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours copper red with a medium thick white head that isnt long lasting. Roasted malts, almost burnt, caramel, earth, Apple and pass and finally nuts. Flavour is moderately bitter but very short lived. Medium sweetness. Well balanced. Thin to medium bodied with initially good carbonation that fades fast.

Franzen (531) - SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2017
Toffee, syrup, rye bread with hints of fruit in the aroma.
Hints of roastiness in the taste. Both maltiness and bitterness comes to play in the taste even though the bitterness is a bit more predominant.
Smooth silky texture with just enough carbonation.
A nice brittish ale.

flying_pig (1503) - SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2017
500ml bottle from Whole Foods, Giffnock (1.79):
Nice stuff but probably not quite as good as Baths Wild Hare that I tried last. Obviously a little darker & the sweetness seemed more pronounced at times with a nice combination of darker malts, toasted flavours & some sugars that complimented the caramel & toffee flavours nicely. Nothing seemed overdone & a good balance was maintained throughout, making this one another decent session offering but Im probably go back to other beers before having this one again; still its definitely a nice beer & well worth trying.

SvanteL (435) - SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2017
Gyllenbrun med medelstort vitt skum. Doft med knck, toffee och torkad frukt. Smaken r maltst med knckighet och torkade frukt, stman rundas av med en fin beska. Det r ngot visst med traditionell engelsk maltbaserad ale, och den hr r verkligen vlbryggd.
