Served from the cask via beer engine with a sparkler. Aroma of fruit ( plums, hint of citrus) and earthy english hops. Firm palate with nice complex malt flavours leading to a medium bitter finish. Excellent Best Bitter. kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2007
Excellent best bitter, good malt background with a solid bitter finish. Great solid mouthfeel an excellent example of a English best bitter TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 27, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2010 It is tasting so good in 2010 that it deserved a rerating. So smooth your can forget that you are drinking it. Didn’t used to be a favourite of mine, but now I just can’t get enough of it.
A typical English Bitter...and in this case that says enough. DiscoForever (71) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 15, 2007
Tap: Looks thick - hazy copper, yummy 1cm head. Smokey aroma that exudes well into the taste. And there’s biscuits too and a bit of burnt home-made hokey pokey (that’s a caramelised sugar and butter treat folks - like toffee). Scrummy easy drinkin’ beer that wants some food with it cos it’s deliciously bitter... Jessop (207) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2013
Copper amber, rich juicy malts and more hop forward as compared to the bitter. Spicy and clean tasting, long lingering bitter finish.

Cask at Galbraith. Clear copper color with a small white head. Aroma of coconut and leaves. Flavor is da bomb digg, loads of coconut, nutty malt, slightly sweet. Medium bodied and smooth with soft casky carbonation. Very impressive. explosivedog (1189) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 10, 2017
On handpull at Galbraith’s. Pours red orange. Strawberry, almonds, hazelnuts, cherry, little funk, touch of biscuit. Good soft carbonation. A real treat. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 24, 2013
The head is ok, the body orange brown. It smells mild, malty, creamy, fruity, ok. The taste is creamy, fruity, bit hoppy, interesting. Nice 13/11/13/12/-/12 3.7 Kaya161 (1139) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 8, 2002
Light golden orange, almost copper coloured. Faint malt aroma. Fairly bitter flavour throughout. Bob Hudsons is proabably their better bitter, although this is still pretty good. eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2004
probably my favourite galbraiths beer, being pretty much halfway between the other two bitters - good balance of juicy crystal malt with traces of nuts, and spicy, bitter hops. Nice choc/prune/vanilla smell and clear red-gold appearance. Quite fruit-cakey.
