MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2009
Poured a rich copper colour beneath a foamy off-white head, perhaps the thickness of a single finger. Aroma was pleasing, being a nice balance of hops and malt. The taste did have some bitterness to it, almost "sharp". Mouthfeel was smooth, and I had no issues with the finish. A thoroughly enjoyable beer. Nice label, too.

HogTownHarry (6611) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2007
Bottle (500ml). Via trade with mgermani. Clear amber pour, large frothy-fizzy white head. Light caramel malt, good oily, slightly acidic cereal grain character, lightly herbal and bitter. Taste - a decent grainy bitter, nice hint of graham cracker breadiness, has a slightly ferric bite in the den. Solid chewy body, good balance of astringencyacidity and carbonation, and the grainy malt accompanies the herbal bitterness. I quite like it, very nice for a bottle bitter.

leaparsons (10451) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2007
Bottle. Amber brown with a small head. Aromas are toffee and caramel with autumn fruit and citrus. Flavours are malty and dry with herbal notes and some citrus. OK.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2007

Boutip (6269) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2007
Bottle: Poured a medium clear amber color ale with a nice foamy head with some good retention. Aroma of biscuit malt is dominating with very little other attribute noticeable. Taste is also dominated by some biscuit malt with no discernable hops presence and some medium sweetness coming through. A bit too filtered for my liking but interesting nonetheless.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2007
I am a fan of this style and my overall rating will reflect that. A fine balance of malt and hops, representative of English-made bitters. Not much on the nose, unfortunately but my palate was quite happy.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
Amber with a small head. Aroma is hoppy with some roots, citrus and a touch of spruce. A tad thin but a nice drying bitterness throughout.

Good hops, mild citric acidity to it. Nothing fancy, or mind blowing, just a solid good sessionable english bitter.
