2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear light amber with noticeable carbonation. Little discernible hop aroma, more of hedgerow and slight sweetness. Taste typical of British bitters with added strange back-of-the-tongue sweetness that borders on the medicinal. Not unpleasant but in larger amounts (toward the end of the pint) started to get overpowering. Not my fave from Hog’s Back.
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear amber color with thin creamy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, toasted malt, flowers, grass and apples. Taste starts with light sweet caramel malt, follows fruity, mild citrussy and herbal, mouthfeel is smooth, while finish is mild bitter. Light body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Has an appealing label, otherwise only a thirst quencher... nephirem (600) - CROATIA - JUN 11, 2017
Bottle, 0.5l. Deep copper pour with one finger off-white head, quickly diminishing. Minimal lacing. Malty on the nose, slightly roasted with notable caramel presence.
Somewhat thin body, softly carbonated. Thin and watery texture. Mildly bitter taste with subtle malt sweetness. Quite mild overall, actually. A bit watery at first but gets decent as it warms up a bit. Caramel and toffee, herbal, grassy. Slightly roasted. Some hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Sticky. Dry mouthfeel. Subtle lingering bitterness in the finish.
Overall, it works as a thirst quencher and has surprising amount of aroma for the low ABV. Not bad. stravale (3088) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - JUN 10, 2017

Dark amber, crystal clear, frothy white head
Aroma of soft caramel, light toasted malt notes, soft earthy twiggy hops
Taste as aroma, soft bitter twiggy English hops, plain stuff
Palate - Soft carb, light body, soft sweet and bitter. FInish as main flavour, light bitter linger
Overall - Simple brown bitter, unmemorable, refreshing enough but rather dull
Pours slightly hazy coppery color, topped with a small just slightly off-white head, immediately disappearing. Sweet malty nose, biscuity with molasses. Nicely bittery, easy, with some noticeable malty backbone. Quite lasting bittery aftertaste. Medium body. Balanced. Like promised - a fine thirst quencher in proper bitter style.

Bottle from Tesco, Borehamwood. Amber red with a small head. Has a slightly thin texture, but a drinkable one with a small rye maltiness and a light bitterness.

A typical English bitter with a nice dark copper colour, a malty flavour and a surprising and, to me, unwelcome sweetness. It certainly ticked all of the expected boxes, but I found that sweetness offputting. There needed to be more bitterness to this bitter! kajser27 (1959) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 11, 2017
Clear, copper colored, small off white head. Aroma is of malt, some caramel, fruity, some apple. Taste is medium sweet malt, caramel, apple, fruity, some cardboard, medium- grassy bitterness, some apple tartness, dry. Light+ bodied, soft carbonation. Eh... YognSpoon (3) - Sandringham, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2017 does not count
Aroma malt with a little citrus but overwelmed with resin. Pours a clear golden copper with a white head that quickly dissipates. Sweet malt, again that resin. Finishes with a subtle hop bitterness. I would prefer more hop. Medium bodied but feels lighter with light carbonation. Feels sprizzy in the mouth. Suspect would enjoy more served slightly chilled on a hot summer day.
Overall, a decent enough bitter that needs a little more hop. Want to try again in 6 months time under a warm sun. bateleur (111) - BETCHWORTH, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2017
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Pours copper red with medium head. Caramelised malt dominates aroma, taste slightly sweet with just a hint of bitter. Slightly fizzy. john44 (3331) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2017
Bottle. BCA - Orangey Copper in colour. Malty; toasty malts, caramel, toffee. Fruity; citrus-orange. Hoppy; grassy hops. Moderately sweet malty fruity throughout. Light drying finish. Drinkable. Not bad at all. (2015-04-07)
