Medium to full body, slick to thick texture, soft to average carbonation and malty and hopy bitter finish. Good.

JorgeLee (2167) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2017
Bottle from Booths in Keswick. Nice bright ruddy brown colour, white foam. Sweetish malty affair, nice toast, nut, malt loaf notes, with a spicy hop finish and a touch of earth. Low to medium bitterness. This being labelled as old ale on here seems to have caused all manner of consternation when it’s just a nice fruity, malty premium bitter. Old fashioned but nice, but maybe I’m becoming an old man...

Bottle from Coniston Brewery, The Black Bull Inn, Coniston, Cumbria. Dark amber coloured with a thin white head. It has a sweet red fruit and peppery hop flavour with earthy notes and dried fruit on the smooth finish. Good.

Hanoi (963) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Bottle.Nose is fruity, brown sugar, . Taste is sweet malt, dark fruits, caramel, light medicinal hops hint of lemon. Mouthfeel is a little thin. It’s one of the acres of bland beers beloved by CAMRA but which leave me cold, it seems dead in the bottle. I need to try this on cask.

Grzesiek79 (4362) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Mocna goryczkowa paleta tego piwa mi się podobala. Dlugi dlugasny bardzo gozki finisz. Pachnie syropem klonowym i sokiem z brzozy. Troche spadzi iglastej. W smaku wytrawno gozkie mało slodowe, Bitterek w starym dobrym stylu. Wyglad prawie bez piany leciusieńko mgliste, zabarwienie ciemnej herbaty.

tandembrauer (1526) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2016
Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours clear copper with off-white head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, grass and hay, some citrussy notes. Tastes pretty bitter with some sweetness. Dry mouth feel, bitter finish.
