Floral aroma. Medium copper. Fizzy. Thick head. Small body accents the bitterness well. I like it as a session beer.

Only Known American made bitter in area. Best beer in England is a Pint of Bitter. Although did have Cask bitter at Gritty’s McGruf in Portland a few years back and thought I was back in England for a minute. Until I got my Lobster roll that is.

Nothing too fancy here. A bit of malt and hops on the nose. Taste is the same with some caramel, thin bodied.

Got this one from LCBO Winter pack in a can. Took this one while watching American Sniper. Light beer, wasn’t sure what what kind of beer this is. Ok beer, not great, not bad.

From my local Carr* market >> Bitter à l’anglaise: ambrée peu maltée et moyennement amère au goût trop prononcé de caramel avec une faible carbonation. La bouche est rêche, l’arrière goût est métallique accompagné d’une saveur maltée légère au goût vague de noisette de pain grillé. Le milieu bouche est une peu épais, gras au palais. Les saveurs fruitées des houblons sont fuyantes. La finale sèche et assoifante, comme si on avait rajouté de la farine de maïs. Plutôt oubliable.

Clear copper colour. Not a tonne of head. Aroma is biscuit. Taste is some gingerbread, malt, and caramel. Light bitterness. Nothing special.

BeardedAvenger (799) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2017
Bottle from The Pancake House, Elveden Forest Centre Parc. Fruity floral aroma. FLight chestnut. Thin white head. Light bitter. Malty. Caramel sweetness comes through into the finish. Relatively light bodied and thin. Fizzy carbonation. Dry finish. OK. A UK style bitter with US influences.

radassace (332) - SCOTLAND - JUL 2, 2017
355ml bottle. Pours light chestnut amber with a small off white head. Nose is very malty, brown bread, toast and biscuit. Light soft carbonation, taste is very bready and biscuity. A slight toasted, nutty taste too, before leading into a light to medium bitter orange peel, apricot and grapefruit dry finish. It’s good if you’re comparing it to traditional English bitters( which are pretty bland ) but OK if not. Unremarkable beer, but nice enough to enjoy one or two before moving on to something better !

I bought this bottle at bootleger in Paris. I drink it today at Bonfol, before to go the swimming pool. Unfortunately, I didn’t know the version before In-bev. The limit to drink it is at November 2017. In my point of view, it is a correct ale, not bad, if I compare some comments, I coud say that you really have worst beers and breweries, even the fact thar this one sold this soul to the God of the wild capitalism, but it is just my personal view, I repeat!!!!! We could say that it is an irish ale, beautiful nice copper body, average carbonation, thin and white head. The taste is well balanced during all the sips. The taste is a bit metalic, malty, bready, dry one, some hop but it is not so fruity that they say on the picture, at the final sip you can smell some touch of caramel.
