UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Pint on tap at the Spotted Mallard, Brunswick (May 2017). Golden in colour, with a floral aroma, a nice balanced taste and a bitter finish; quite reminiscent of the session bitters I used to drink back in England. Muggus69 (2759) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2017
330mL bottle from Bucket Boys. TedE (1498) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2017
Orange gold body, slight haze, white foam.
Moderate intensity aroma - toasty, biscuity, bread crust, slight honey sort of malt, earthy hop presence.
Medium body, some chewiness there, lowish carbonation.
Malt drives the body; bread crust & savoury biscuit, some savoury sort of hops, dried herbal character there, decent bitterness, dry finish.
Approachable; be a good introduction to the Bitter style - not as malt or bitterness driven as authentic examples.
Pint on tap at Basement Brewhouse, Bankstown. Pale brown beer with thin white head. Carbonation is low and slow. Light body, slight fizz. Nice malt profile which becomes sweeter in the finish. Let it warm a bit and it becomes more balanced with hop notes. Nice bitter. Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2016
Pours a yellow with a colossal sized white head. Aroma is malt, some fruit and hops. Taste is moderate bitter. Oakes (19027) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2016
As Best Bitter. Draught @ Saint John. Hazy light tan. Has a light fruitiness, not much bitterness, and has a refreshing character. A little subtle, might benefit from a handpump.

Nice standard English bitter in bottle. Clean palate w just the right Fuggles hops, no head or has, makes me think of home. Yum. Buying this again.

Bottle, 12C. Clear golden amber with an off white head that lasts well. Earthy aroma with dusty spices, some lemon, bread. Lightish bodied but just slightly chewy. Tastes as it smells - some apricot there too - with a dry, spicy bitter finish. Maybe the spiciness is a little much. Deeply refreshing. Not exciting, just good.
