Bottle. Best before April 2013 seems like a long time for a Bitter. Dark copper with a very thick lasting brown head. Mild nose has hints of earth and wood with a trace of spice. Has a strong dark malt flavour with some dark spice and hop notes. Kind of reminds me of a mix of a hoppy Bitter and a Mild. An easy drinker with the malt, spice and some dark caramel notes building through the glass. pintbypint (3947) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2011

Bottled (BC)@Bishops Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is quite bitter fruity and floral. Flavour is fruits, some floral notes, mild yeasty and sweet maltyness as well. Rather carbonated, but otherwise smooth and nice. Some rather vegetably notes start to show once it warms up a bit. Blairgus (4615) - California, USA - FEB 28, 2011

500ml bottle from Drink of Fulham, drunk 11th July 2010. Chestnut in colour with a persistent beige head. Nose has a bit of spice but is mainly musty and old. Taste has some fruitiness, mainly toffee & toasted malt. Rather soapy too. Clings to the mouth. Medium bodied. Overall I was really disappointed with this as I’d been so impressed by the Benedictus.
