Bottle. This beer poured a small sized white head that was smooth and creamy and contained fine-small sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The aroma was malty, lightly hoppy and sweet. The flavor was lightly bitter at the start and finished lightly hoppy. The mouthfeel was very smooth and this was a light-medium bodied beer with fair lacing. This was a very smooth and easy drinking Bitter. joekinty (263) - rockledge, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2008

Poured into a English pint, it is a medium orangeish gold with a nice foamy white head. It recedes with some nice lacing.
The smell is very nice, it has a lot of lemon and orange zest, it is very zesty.
The taste is surprisingly similar, though more subdued. It has some zesty lemon/lime, a bit of grain, and some mineral water. It has a lot of flavor, though it is a bit blunt.
It is supremely drinkable.

500ml bottle. Clear golden-tan color. Nice carbonation and head. Aroma is mildly sweet, and very fresh. The taste is mildly bitter as the name would suggest, with a nice chewy body. A rich and full-bodied beer for 3.6%. Delicate honey tastes and a nice fruity/malty finish. Delicious beer. thedm (6184) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2004
This bottled brew poured a Medium sized head of fine to medium sized white colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body was a slightly hazy carbonated light brown colored one and the aroma was a mild malt hop one with a mild bitterness to it. The mouth feel was smooth and slightly tingly. The flavor was that of malt hop mild bitter and was clean crisp and remarkably good. Overall, it is a very pleasant drinkable brew.

Clear orange gold body; medium dense khaki head. Very drinkable. Dry, grainy, hoppy in only a British way. Medium body. Good stuff. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2010
500mL Bottle poured at RIFT English Pale Ale tasting. Big rich strong graham cracker aroma, with lots of malt. Pours a darker gold, with white head. Flavors are solid...the palate comes across lighter, but still holds some solid malt and slight oaky-like bitterness. Balanced. Solid. And probably my favorite of the evening,.

Bottle. Amber color with a thin white head. Light grainy aroma. Flavors of light biscuits and oats. Balanced and clean. Makes you wonder if there should be more to this one, but still invites you back. Some herbal flavors with a crisp dry finish. redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2003

Frothy caramel coloured bitter with a toffee aroma and a dryly bitter flavour. Overall a good quality bitter.
