COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Based on beer recipes developed in the 1800s by traditional English brewers, this ale is well balanced with caramel malts and English hops. Historical records exist showing the importation of Fuggle and Golding hops to Upper Canada in the early 1800s, in fact it was well known for American invaders to demand food and beer from homesteads they occupied. Formerly known as Butler’s Bitter.

JoeMcPhee (9451) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, - MAY 4, 2013
Pour at the Ontario Brewing Awards. Amber coloured pour. Lightly sweet aroma a touch of earthy hoppiness. Malty and sweet with a touch of light bitterness. Tastes nice and fresh but too sweet by half.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7929) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2015
Sampled from a 650 ml brown bottle this beer poured a bright caramel color with a huge foamy orange-tan head that towered over the glass, lingered and left excellent lacing. The aroma was sweet golden fruits and toffee. The flavor was bitter, dryish and malty with a sharp fruit presence and hints of wood and tobacco. Medium length finish. Medium body. Decent.

3.8
lesifflebiere (1928) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2015
Boisson orangée légèrement trouble, avec une toute petite mousse à la surface ; le nez est quant à lui fruité, sucré (orange, cassonade). Bouche sèche, pas amère mais les malts sont minces comme du papier, laissant aux houblons anglais, herbeux, toute la finale à eux seuls. Moins sucrée que le nez l’annonçait, et c’est une bonne chose. Une bitter "by the book", mais ô combien charmante et savoureuse.

RhetoricalAns (939) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
650 mL bottle. Clear dark amber pour, thin off-white head, dissipates quickly. Weak aroma, caramel, some nut,. Taste is Caramel malt, some earthiness, grassy hop finish. medium body.

3.6
bunget (1001) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
650ml bottle. Clear amber-copper body, medium beige head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, herbs, toffee, bread, a tad metallic. Taste of roasted malts, biscuits and bread, caramel, a touch of herbs and a little mineral aftertaste. Very enjoyable.

4.2
mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - SEP 9, 2014
nice bitter. Enjoyable. Would love to see this as an ESB. Flavorful considering the ABV. Slippery mouthfeel which is very good. A bit of a hop kick at the end.

Stephane_Houle (229) - - JUL 7, 2014
Apparence: D?une couleur brune opaque, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse d?une bonne durée. Bonne effervescence. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de malt caramélisé. Saveurs: Au goût, c’est un goût de malt caramélisé qui domine. Pas le côté bitter des bitters (je sais, c’est mauvais comme jeux de mots). Donc aucune amertume et ni effervescence. Fiche technique Style: Bitter Format: 650 ml Taux d?alcool: 4,4%

Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2014 Clear but coppery colour with a decent off white head. Malty and biscuit aroma with a slight roasty note and some floral hops in the background. Medium to light bodied brew with a bitterness that is at the forefront of the flavour profile. I’ve had alot worse versions of this style. This one is actually pretty tasty.
