A classic Best Bitter, rich copper coloured and balanced malt and hop flavours. Brewed with Maris Otter and a blend of Crystal and Brown malts giving a malt complexity with a hint of toasted dryness in the finish. The hops confer a soft, balanced bitterness and typically English roundness to the palate.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2011 500ml bottle (ChrisO’s post-GBBF2011 Tuesday)
Massive lychee aroma, some sourness too. Massive carbontaion. Good roast, some liquorice. Has good light and heavy elements, but they do not integrate well.
Rerate 5 days later, post RBESG2011 Sunday. More appley in the aroma, more chocolatey in the finish. Aged quite well for a BB2006. Very rich roast, toasty and nutty. Same score.

Dedollewaitor (16393) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2011
Bottle @ Chris O’s. Thanks guys. Pours cloudy golden with a fluffy white head and lacings. Metal, fruit, yeast and corn. A bit of peach. Medium bodied.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2011
Bottled. Amber colour with a small foamy slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruits, wood, some slight earth, herbs and mild honeyish and nutty notes. Flavour is fruits, malts, some floral and wooden notes. Pleasantly balanced, ending in a nice dry bitterness.

Theis (15151) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2011
Bottle at ChrisO & Ruth’s - Thanks. Cloudy red/brown - offwhite head. Red berries, fruity, spicy, roasted, light flowery, medium malty, thin, ok carbnation.

duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2006
Bottle. Pretty much no aroma or flavour. Slightly apple fruit flavours and not hell of a lot more. Very watery finish. Stale.

Dark amber, firm head. Malty with some dark fruits present. A touch of toffee end this rather refreshing pint.
