JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 30, 2017
Hazy dark amber, with a moderate, dense off white head. Scents of mildly sour pale malt and caramel. Quite dry with a floor malt and light sour dough flavors. Quite carbonated. Not sure what they were going for in this one. 1/12

Reviewed as bottle of Great Yorkshire Classic. Dry, sweet, malty, crisp. Ok but lacks distinction.

EdKing (2573) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2016
Bottle from Berkhamsted Beer Shop. Clear chestnut light brown beer with a thin white head Nose is muddy, earthy, leaves, fresh baked ginger snap biscuits, bready. Taste is fairly unremarkable. Little ginger snap, astringent English earthy hop, slight bitterness, bready, nutty, slightly toasty malt. Like a pasteurised standard English bitter.

AshtonMcCobb (6495) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle from that shop in Malton. As Baytown Bitter. Appearance - amber with a decent head and a very slight haze. Nose - biscuit and toffee. Taste - toffee and oatmeal biscuits. General hobnob thing going on. Palate - close to medium bodied with a crunchytexture and a fairly balanced finish. Overall - a very drinkable bitter.

3.1
martpez (206) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2015
Currently named Great Yorkshire Classic. Its a decent enough bitter. Not really bitter enough, but goes down well with a pie or sausage roll, and is an atypical example of a traditional English bitter.

Labelled as Baytown Bitter. Nice and well balanced bitter where room is made for a sweet malty body.
