South Burlington branch can.
A: Cloudy rust colour, off white foam is thick and leaves loads of lacing behind.
S: Mix of lemony hops and heaps of caramel and grainy malt.
T: Grain, caramel malt dominate with the lemon tasting hops playing second fiddle. Like it should be for the style.
M: Creaminess gives the impression of full bodied.
O: Well crafted Bitter. More of these in the US required!

Bière blonde-brune (beige ?!) 5 % d’alcool. Elle possède un col très mousseux. Elle possède un nez amer, mais également sucré. Elle possède un arrière-goût métallique, légèrement amer, avec une finale comme de bien brune, âcre et légèrement torréfié. Elle possède un goût légèrement fruité, comme d’agrumes, mais mélangé à de la torréfaction, ça fait spécial. Elle est douce en bouche, avec un arrière-goût amer restant en bouche. Très bonne !

Clear amber color with moderate activity. Slightly creamy beige 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with a strong amount of lacing. Flavors of caramel, faint molasses, toffee like, with noble hops, sweet malts, faint citrus, and red ale spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. Nice sugary feel with a dash of roasted spices. Thick smooth full body with the perfect amount of crispy carbonation. Medium strength finish, ending on a side of butterscotch, a citrus zest, and a strong grassy feel. Overall very good quality craft. Quite delicious, great balance, good intensity. Perfectly rounded. Accessible. Highly drinkable and super fresh. Good representation of the style. canary dog (784) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - SEP 22, 2016
I like bitters. I think they are a very under-rated style. This one is freshly and tastefully malty, like it should be. It definitely tastes British. Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Poured into an English pint glass (proper/correct, yes).
The appearance was a burnt/glossy dark amber close to brown color color with a sustaining cap of a little white head. Light lacing.
The aroma starts off with some sweet apples lording over a glossy sweet spice with an ample sweet breadiness slyly rounding it all out.
The flavor takes it all in with a sly use of some fruity esters to round out a sweet clean malt base. Semi-sweet nice malty aftertaste with semi-sticky finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable trait to it. Feels good on my tongue, move slyly with a somewhat sticky feel.
Overall, good English Bitter for the most part and would go nicely with it’s respected food. Yes, pass the fish n’ chips!
