Bottle from the brewery and cask at CP&K. It pours clear amber-brown with a thick off-white head. The nose is wood, leather, earth, toast, brown bread and touch of caramel. The taste is toasty, earth, wood, leather, light bitterness, nut and caramel with a clean, dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A classic, well-executed bitter. dogbomb (1253) - ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle. Dark amber, like well brewed tea. Thick offwhite, light tan head. Malt smells, some tea, some caramel, some nuts. Bready and caramellic in the mouth with a nice amount of bitterness. Very "solid" drink this, with some nice warm roasty malts and bitters. Tgn (16) - Herefordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2013
Great bitter with typical British character but with an added earthy malt depth with is encouraged with a special hoppy finish McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 22, 2013
Amber with a bit of a tan head. Noses of hops and malts but rather unspectecular. Acidic, medium bitter, bit watery light slick texture. Finish is rather quick.

My Bottom Line:MannyGoldberg (259) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Toasted and nutty caramel malts elegantly move into leafy hops and their bitterness in this balanced Brown Bitter.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear deep amber-brown.
-Drinkability is very high.
-The flavour profile is nicely balanced.
-The conditioning here is beautifully done.
-This may not be the most compelling example of the style, but it remains very nice throughout.
On cask at Craft Beer Co., Brighton.
Cask at Old Nun’s Head- 17 June 2013. People who whine on about boring brown bitter would do well to check this out. Lovely balance between the malts and berry notes. Would have loved a 2nd pint had I not had to be somewhere else. kwik-lime (2043) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2013
Quite hoppy with strong dark fruit character. Nice malt character to balance, really enjoyable session beer.
