colui72 (805) - HONG KONG - DEC 31, 2016
Pours clear, beautiful amber, with a small white head. Aroma is caramel and malts. Sweet malts, caramel in its taste, with good floral and bitter hops to balance. Simple as it is, a very enjoyable bitter!

Bouteille en grande surface. Belle couleur orange limpide. Nez de fruits agrumes, houblon. Bouche : frache, genre "pils" avec des gots de fruits et dpices. Lgre aigreur en plus de lamertume !

GoufCustom (1816) - HONG KONG - DEC 15, 2016


355 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.

Clear amber orange colour; One-quarter finger head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with barely notable slight carbonation; Fragrant aroma of Amber malt, with strong caramel, sticky toffee, cherry / red fruits, floral, sugar, resin, bread, lemon and light grass; Close to light sweet taste of fair malt, with strong wheat, light tartness, caramel, floral, molasses notes, biscuits, light lemon, fair to light grassy bitter hops; Mid to light body. Slick and slightly oozy palate; Mouth Feel is fair Ale maltyness in a slick background. Heavily wheat-thinned but tartness is light. Some caramel, no toffee nor red fruits, light floral and minimal sweetness. Biscuity with fair lemon to round. Neat... Hoppiness is floral, resin, lemon and light grass in nose. Floral, light lemon and light grass in taste; Bitterness is pretty light strong for an abrupt, fairly low astringent caramel wheaty finish; Fairly dry after taste. Easy and light bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is quite a fairly well-made Bitter, and I really like its rich caramel and toffee aroma, but the body has too much wheat, taste- and hop-wise are too timid. If this is a no-name Bitter I will be content, but this is Goose Island so I expected more. Too light for me.

Syfher (361) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2016
Bottle of 35,5 cl, in a Tumbler glass; from the fridge. Usual but nice "pub" ale, with a malty taste that reminds of beer as the Kilkenny. Beautiful deep orange colour and a little white fuzzy head. The taste is mostly malty, with little notes of hops.

Antzrhere (140) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2016 Pours slightly burnt orange with frothy white head that disappears to a lace. Aroma is quite phenolic, very much like a belgian. Taste is very malty, strong toffee, bready, mild but present English fruity earthy hops and yeast. Although not a ?clean? beer the favours are very distinct and fresh, not muddled. I would have mistaken this for a 5-6% beer, not a 4.3% abv beer, which is commendable. Like a cross between an english IPA and a belgian double flavour wise

Baldie (14) - Jersey City, New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2016 The aroma is very mild on this beer. The appearance is a burnt golden brown. Light head. Taste is not too strong or hoppy, but definitely has a oaken aftertaste with herbal notes. Carbonation is somewhat flat, and overall I would say this is a run of the mill ale.
