Aug 07 Bottle from Bottles. York. Good leafy hop flavours and pleasant malt with a hint of caramel sweetness. Pretty good for a BCA.

SilkTork (5881) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2007
Cambridge Fest A drinkable pale malt bitter with a light dusting of flowery hops. Straddles session and best bitter - could be either. Pleasant stuff.

3.3
StueyD (1586) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2007
A mid to dark, copper orange coloured beer with a thick off-white head. A predominantly malty nose, slight hint of caramel, toffee, then a well hidden hop aroma comes through with a touch of citrus. The taste is follows the pattern of the aroma, mainly malty elements, caramel, toffee, a touch of chocolate maybe, then a mildly zesty hop flavour comes through to give the finish a plesant dryness. (Cask - 2007 Cambridge Beer Festival).

3.2
leaparsons (10797) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2007
Bottle. Amber with a large off-white foam. Aromas are fruiity citrus with green pine hops. Flavours are very hoppy and fruity. Bitter lemon with a dry finish. Thats it, but its good.

berkshirejohn (6687) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2007
Cask at The Anchor Inn, Oakerthorpe, Derbyshire. Amber in colour with a white head; fruity taste and a clean bitter finish. A fairly basic bitter, not as interesting as some of the other Cropton brews.

Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 3, 2007
Bottle. This bitter has a nice copper color and no head at all, and the mouthfeel is completely flat. The aroma has notes of fruit just like the flavour, where I also find notes of caramel. It has a nice, citrussy bitterness.

2.8
mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2006
Bottle. Foggy copper orange body with a large white frothy head. The aroma is fresh - piney hops and sweet biscuit. Dry palate with an adequate hop profile and live carbonation. A bit too sour overall for what this is supposed to be.

2.9
Radek Kliber (7487) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 2, 2006
Bottle. Haze, amber with large white rocky top, yeast sediment at the base. Strong green aromatic hoppy nose with rich fruity base. Medium bodied, slightly acidic, soapy with hoppy top. Green black tea like aftertaste.

2.4
DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2006
Nice malt/hops aroma,light copper, pours a large off-white head. Subtle malt taste, sweet, almost cloying. A little less than hoped for. Thank You Michael @ Chesters in Hamilton!

2.6
FrankJohansen (3622) - Sabro, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2006
Bottle. Amber colour with absolutely no head. Aroma of hops with malty notes. Nice taste, but nothing special. A bit thin.
