Erzengel (8176) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2016
*Old rating. Best before 30 Sep 2011. The beer is malty bitter. Nice typical Ale-characteristics. Malts with hints of nuts and nice and fresh. Malty fresh aftertaste. Nice but not too deep.

Towey1989 (2122) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, slight toasted malts, subtle nuts and spicy, earthy hops. Taste of toasted malts, some caramel, slight mineral and spicy, earthy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A short, minerally, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. It’s not that thin for 3.4 but then again it’s not that flavourful either. A typical malty bitter but with a minerally bitterness in the finish.

TorbenJensen (1472) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2015
Many notes of malt, amongst caramel, rises in the nose of this ale. The foam is confined to a thin layer. It tastes markedly bitter hops and has a small sweet tang of caramel. The finish is dry and long-lasting. A fine, but traditional British bitter without any major surprises.

Smooth bitter taste with low aroma and full palate, not too strong in taste and not too filling

JohnRMurdoch (4575) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 20, 2015
500ml bottle. Medium brown, decent head. Toffee vanilla vegetable aroma. Metallic caramel malt flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Bog standard supermarket bitter. Not my sort of beer.
