Pours a nice gold with a small head that dissipated quickly.
The smell is quite fruity and malty; a sign of good things to come.
The taste is also fruity with maybe a lemony note in the background but up front, it's about the malt. A very drinkable English Bitter, it's one of my favourites of the style.

Bottle. (Brief tasting notes and rating from old records) - Heavily hopped ale with intense spicy hop character and soft malty fruitiness. Very drinkable. (Backlog) sinfull (1779) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2017
Hazy , copper color . One finger thick, white head. Aroma of toasted bread, caramel with faint metallic/mineral notes. Moderate malty sweetness. Bitter and astringent finish.

From the bottle marked F-18-104. Attractive looking unfiltered amber pour with a modest off-white head that fades. The aroma is traditional but muted British bitter with a caramel malt sweet sensation. The body falls into the light t medium range. The sweetness really exemplifies itself in the flavor I will say. Loads of caramel, perhaps honey (?), and a clean, dry finish. It’s a bitter alright. Jabic (667) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 10, 2017
Ar: Bready malt, pineapple, and some slight figs; chalk and mossy hops; a touch of tangy caramel. Ap: Bright and orange; medium-small light tan head with moderate-low retention, leaving a web of suds around the cap. T: Fresh grain and biscuit; steely hop bitterness, with a clean mossy flavor; some medium caramels; very little sweetness; apple and light peach; full toastiness mid-palate; just a touch of butter; chalk and bitterness carry the beer to a finish. P: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation; finish is dry. O: A pleasure of an English bitterness; fresh, bright, and full of malt flavor; hops are present but supporting; eminently drinkable.

Nogle synes den tradionelle britiske bitter/ale er lidt kedelig. Denne her øl hører til katagorien. Om den er kedelig, er en smags sag, men en god sommer øl kambei70 (1110) - - NOV 27, 2016
Aroma is mild caramel malt and english esters. Appearance is light copper and crystal clear. Almost no head. Taste is well balanced between light caramel and a firm bitterness. A bit of floral and tangy hops. Palate is light and crisp.

Bottle pour at Shelton Brothers. Clean malt nose with some prune and light grass. A touch of toffee. Well-balanced on the palate with body, but feels light and refreshing. Light bitterness on the finish. Could drink this all day really.
