Tried on first trip to Great Britain in 2010. Nice golden ale, crisp and dry. A little spicy and a lingering sweetness.

A bitter is a hell of a beer to start with on a beer tasting gig. Especially for someone who has to adjust to this type of beer. Being open minded I realize this is a beer type that one must drink a few to get the hang off. I am generally positively encourage by this beer and the taste notes.
