The beer that started everything. This is a session beer; you can enjoy several without paying any consequences. Just the right amount of caramel sweetness and light bitterness to make this beer the definition of “drinkability.” Have you had your Beaver today?

Draft pour at Special Brews. Pours a hazy autumn orange color with no head really. Kind of a nutty, woody aroma. Bitter flavor throughout. Not really a style that I seek out, but I considered this a decent session beer. Easy, gentle drinking beer. Not bad.

Draught at the brewery
Cloudy light amber color. Herbaceous beer, quite dry, with strong bitterness and some woody/papery yeast feeling; could be British. But it’s a bit inexpressive.

on tap at WA brewers fest. Cloudy brown pour. Aroma of slight sweet herbs creamy yeast. Tastes like tobacco firm bitter. some creamy palate. some peaches.

Draught. Pours a slightly hazy light amber color with very little head on it. Nose is a little bitter, but ends up being predominantly earthy to me. Taste is pretty light with some slight bitterness, and ends up being slightly creamy. Meh.

I love this beer. It is very easy to drink. Not heavy, Perfect alcohol content. Low carbonation. Constantly delicious. I would get a growler every week and the saddest I’ve ever been was moving away and not having access to this exceptional beer. This is one of my top 4 favorite English style beers. In no particular order - Bit-O’Beaver, Fullers ESB, Wynkoop St. Charles ESB, Redhook ESB. All of the Foggy Noggin beers are exceptional, but their Bitter is certainly my favorite.

Clear amber color/ ivory head. Caramel, pale malt aromas. Medium bodied. Caramel flavors with burnt popcorn, smoked butter--@ the fn tasting garage--

Draft from Special Brews. Growlered, taken home, and refrigerated, where it proceeded to get really, really cold. Pours a cloudy dark brown with golden brown edges and a dense creamy head that lasts. Mild toasty bread nose with iced tea showing. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, brown bread, a little caramel, and quite a bit of iced tea on the mid palate. Mildly ascetic finish. Not bad at all, but laboring under an unforgivingly mild style on its way to greatness, and not quite there yet.

Hard to find this style done very well and very well is what this one is. Been going to the Foggy Noggin tasting room for quite some time and just love this beer. I am a bog fan of session beers and this is my go to beer. Nice matly tones of bicuity, bready and finishes with a pleasant dry bitterness.

MartinT (10014) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2011
My Bottom Line:
Peaches and caramel move effortlessly into rising leafy hop bitterness in this balanced Bitter.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the amber-hued golden.
-The prickly forced carbonation detracts from the enjoyment somewhat.
-Body is lean, increasing drinkability.
-There was nothing incredibly wrong with this brew to me, save for the fact that it may have been a bit forgettable. A cask, or naturally-carbonated keg, would have been great.

On tap at Naked City.

Tap at Naked City. Amber. Fair head. Light caramel scent. Rough edge to the taste. Caramel malt and a sweet candy touch.
