"Beers for bottling are drawn from brewery conditioning tanks and transported by road tanker to our bottlers. There they are chilled, stored for ten days, then filtered and bottled. At the end of the bottling process, the bottles are pasteurised, labelled and packed."
"Brewed with many generous handfuls of choice Golding hops, it is full flavoured ale with a rich fruit nose. The bittersweet malty taste is followed by an uncompromising long, dry and bitter finish. This beer was the first, most successful, of all of our bottled beers."

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2017 500ml from bottle bought at Tesco. Good English bitter, dry and mouthful, and particularly malty. However, highly forgettable.

Jabic (656) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 23, 2017
Ar: Crispy, biscuity malt; hay and lemon; red apples and preserved pineapples; marmalade; dry toast. Ap: Deep amber and hazy; medium-small off-white head with moderate retention, leaves an uneven landscape of silky suds and tall, lanky chunks of lacing on the glass sides. T: Dried and toasty malt, very crackery; low sweetness; hop flavor of black pepper and licorice; bitterness is medium-high and edgy; apple skins, black tea, dried pineapple, and chalk on the finish. P: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation; finish is very dry. O: A crisp and fresh bitter; prominent malt character without any real sweetness; hops are showcased but never quite overwhelm the malt (it gets close sometimes, though); fresh and bright--a welcomed surprise when drinking imports in the US.

Grumbo (3720) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2017
Bottle from local supermarket. Backlog rating from bottle collection and historic scoring. No tasting notes kept, just rating.

Piepenhenrich (1124) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2017
Decent Bitter. Boasts a fine balance of malty and fruity aromas and flavors like a good Ale and a gentle but reasonably intense hoppy bitterness. Like.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2017 Great brown bitter beer Maybe it's not for everyone cause of his strong bitterness

ebone1988 (2070) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2017
Bottle from Super Fine Wine and Liquor. Aroma is bitter, fruity, caramel, toffee, light earthy hop presence, good. Appearance is reddish brown, light tan fess, clear. Taste is bitter, dark fruit, caramel, toffee, crisp, earthy, good. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, bitter dark fruit skins aftertaste. Overall, this one is pretty enjoyable.

JaKeAFC (1262) - ITALY - AUG 3, 2017
50cl bottle from a shop Bugibba. Brownish color, clear creamy offwhite head. Smell of wet cereals. Aroma of weak malts, light roasted, earth. Light bitter taste, quite flat with some caramel. Weird.
