oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2011
Bottled (Beers Of Europe). Amber colour, medium white head. Aroma is fruits, mild vegetables, some slight toasted notes as well as earth. Flavour is being quite similar. Rather watery and thin, though the elements are there.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2010
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. A little nuts in the nose and perhaps a whiff of floral British hops. Light in body, caramel and nuts and a metallic touch. Very subdued bitterness. But a pleasant little drinker. 180110

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2011 500ml bottle, drunk on 28 July 2011. A surprise "how had I missed that one before" rating. Actually hadn’t missed much. Looks fine enough - bright coppery amber with a thin white head. Mainly nutty malt aroma with a touch of paper. Not that much happening on the palate. Touch of sweetness in the malts here. A smattering of earthy hop. Nothing particularly unpleasant here but hardly inspiring. Had plenty of worse pasteurised, botled ordinary bitters though.

imdownthepub (15326) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2010
Bottled, 500ml from Sainsburys, Banbury. Amber with white head, carbonated. Took a flier on buying this as I thought I hadn’t rated it. Carbonated cardboard flavours on pouring with a boiled grain background. A touch sweet, pear drop, vegetable. I got what I expected.

bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2003
Based on draught version: Just your average English bitter. Nothing too exciting.

2.8
allmyvinyl (10995) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2014
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. 3.8% ABV. Pours clear amber, thin white head. Aromas are light caramel, light soap/floral hops. Slight sulphur/metal note. Taste has fruit sweetness, light bitterness, caramel and more floral hops. Light bodied and thin to watery. OK.

ManVsBeer (10946) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2012
Clear copper coloured ale with no head out of the bottle. Sweetened aroma but bland character.

2.6
pivnizub (10806) - Bochum, Por�ř�, GERMANY - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle: Deep golden,almost clear, small persistent off-white head, delicate hoppy-fruity nose with a slight metallic tinge; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied;dryish thin bitter-fruity finish. Best Bitter? Must be a kind of english humour...
