Pretty alright from a can. I am not a big fan of bitters but this one is quite drinkable, not too bitter, actually pretty smooth. No head.

Clear, copper, strong off white creamy head, nice lacing. Aroma is of some malt, bit biscuit, some fruity notes. Taste is medium- sweet malt and biscuit, fruity, some grassy bitterness. Light bodied, soft carbonation, bit creamy. Nice looking but...

Oiolosse (129) - Granada, SPAIN - APR 30, 2017
Popular cerveza Bitter que no aporta nada. Medio Litro nitrogenado marrn claro con cremosa cabeza blanca. Aroma de caramelo, maltas. Sabor muy suave, dbil amargura, dulzura dbil. Cerveza ligera con una base de malta caramelo. Fra, suave y espumosa son sus virtudes. Inspida y nula carbonatacin. Para olvidar.

midovark (849) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - APR 17, 2017
Can. Pours hazy brown with thin but long lasting head. It has the usual biscuity bitter notes in aroma and taste but is painfully, terribly watery and thin. Meh.

Banksiz (130) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Light malty nose, with light piney notes from the hops. No yeast or fruity notes. Medium light body, some sweetness, moderate bitterness. No real noble hop flavor. Bitter finish with no harshness. Pleasant everyday ale but nothing special. Tastes a bit thin. Unfiltered draught product might be better if available.
