Sweet, malt aroma, with a bit of caramel/butterscotch. Copper with tiny head. Bitter/malt flavour, well balanced. Bitter with a full mouth feel. A fair Bitter.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2005 29th Aug - Bottled. Good bottled bitter - not great, just a higher alcohol version of the bitter.

GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2002
Very nice colour. Malty aroma with a slightly soapy edge. A little soapiness in the flavour as well, but it's quickly offset by hints of caramel and a moderate bitterness.

Reddish, copper colour. Malty aroma w/ hint of caramel & touch of hops. Smooth, medium body. Malty up front w/ caramel notes. Lingering bitter finish. Eminently quaffable.

reddish brown colour, disappeaing head. full bodied malty beer. I'm starting to see a real house character among brakspear beers. quite nice.

Pretty light on the malts with a noticeable bitterness and astringency in the finish.

Didn;t mind it, nice chary malt flavour, and nice hop bitterness, another english bitter i guess.

3.9
Nuffield (4185) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2002
Pours with a decent head, settling into a thin head tyipcal of a bitter, but carbonation persists in palate for some time. Aroma is mild but with distinctive caramel. Flavor well balanced, not particularly bitter in finish. Better than any of the other Brakspears I've had. (bottle)
