TASTING NOTES: Red-amber beer, this time with a hoppy aroma backed by a little malt. It's a full flavoured, hoppy, malty best bitter to taste, with a mellow, moreish, pleasantly bitter and hoppy finish.

StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2006
A dark brown beer with a thickish white head. A discreet toasted malt nose with a sweet, yeasty hint. The taste also has the sweet yeasty element, there is a floral note of hops, as well as in the aftertaste, which is slightly sweet and cloying. Makes a good winter beer!

leaparsons (10400) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2006
Bottle. Amber/red with a small off-white head. Aromas are toffee malts with juicy fruit, mostly berries, sulphur and spicy, floral hops. Flavours are initially both malty and fruity followed by dry, spicy hops and yeasty, slightly sour notes. Slightly metallic on the finish with mellow dry hopping. Dry on the aftertaste. A good easy drinking bitter.

omhper (24632) - Tyres, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2005
Bottled at RBESG. Hazy amber, lasting head. Sulphury Burtonesque aroma. Sweet and medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Medium bitterness. Easy going, yet flavourful. Not a beer that stands out, but a well made session ale that is really enjoyable.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2005
Bottle. Classy. Nutty aroma, with some hoppy citrus notes. Palate is dry and soft, yet assertive. Round nutty malt flavours, and bitter earthy hops, nice length on the finish, with a more-ish bitterness, i also got a touch of berry fruit. Tasty stuff.
