One2remeber (247) - Bucktown, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Bottled 05.11.15 Deep amber, tan/orangish hue. Firm, off-white head, lacey. A bit of chlorine/salts from low malt/hops/yeast presence. A lot more mild, (new world vs old world). Expected fruity esters. Malt forward, yet mild crisp, crystal malt, moderate-low strength. Fresh baked bread, toasty. Orange/lemon. Shampoo/perfumy (honey/vanilla type esters). Chewy body, surprising for lack of caramel type flavors there are present. Moderately high bitterness with a tinge on the side of the palate. Extremely drinkable. Spot on for an AM interpretation of an English Best Bitter.

Pretty good, but now part of "And hows her bush", so there is reason for skepticism about how this will all flesh-out. Watch how it will all of a sudden start hogging shelf space, now that AB owns it. It is all about shelf space and distributors in the liquor business.

dbhenry (139) - El Paso, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Aroma is hoppy with a mellow malt smell. Appearance is golden, a medium color, with a small head. Taste is very well balanced between hops and malt, with a medium body. Overall, quite delicious.

bavarian81 (157) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Has a very deep amber color and a thin, quickly dissipating head. Has an aroma of sweet bread.. or biscuits?? The aroma was faintly similar to that of a pilsner. Also smells of some indistinct fruits. Taste is crisp, sweet, and spicy. Hops are noticeable in the finish.

Kita (2075) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottled, 0.355l. Clear pale amber color with average creamy, mostly diminishing off-white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of moderate citrus and herbal hops, berries and mild tropical fruits. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel malty backbone, follows light fruity with spicy mouthfeel and light bitter finish. Full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Easy drinking bitter, very aromatic with much more hops than in English bitters...

euniceradio (522) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Beautiful deep amber pour (almost expecting a Jurassic Park mosquito inside). Great thick beige head. Aroma faint of caramel and bread. Taste is wonderfully balanced with fruity/spicy hops and smooth caramel malts. Perfect bittersweet smooth drinkability for a rich session ale at 4.3 ABV.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Nice color. Malty and biscuit notes in the smell that carry over to the taste as well. Enjoyable beer.

DuchessOfIowa (161) - Iowa, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Out of a can. Aroma is herbal, piney, with a little citrus. Nice rich amber hue with lacing as I drink. Caramel sweetness and typical English hops flavor that is faint with some pine and minimal citrus. Soft dry bitterness on the palate.

This beer shows a typical British best bitter profile. Medium malt flavor, a hint of toast flavor, with a dry finish.smooth mouthfeel, not high alcohol, a pretty good drinkability,

DavyK (50) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2017
Great example of an American amber. They say English bitter but its a malty-amber hit that segues into a crisp, hoppy finish that I think defines it.
