Bamsen78 (5617) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle @ You’ll Never Walk Alone in Kolding. Pours clear amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, fruit and flowers. Bittersweet, estery flavour with notes of hops and faint touches of fruit. Bitterish aftertaste. Not well balanced but enjoyable.

Keg at the Euston tap. Aroma is creamy lactose, English yeast esters, berry. Golden crystal clear pour with a thick creamy head. Lace. Flavour is very mellow, nutty biscuit malt, beery. Light grassy bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable. Very good condition.

500ml bottle from Drinkmonger. Chestnut brown, no head. A bit flat. Dry grain malt aroma. Mild oaty caramel flavour. A bit watery, inoffensive & homebrewish.

Cask conditioned handpump Brewery Tap Leeds 21/03/13. A classic brown coloured beer with a white head. A sugary bitter with smoky notes. A nice kick of flavour although the sweetness dominates the expected Redwillow hopping. It’s pretty good but on the odd side.

Theydon_Bois (21479) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2013
Gravity dispense at the 23rd Battersea Beer Festival - 06/02/13. Hazed copper/brown with a thin bubbly off white head that retains well. Nose is caramel, biscuit, toffee, malt. Taste comprises caramel malt, biscuit, light smoke. Medium body, moderate carbonation, bitterness in the finish. A decent bitter.

jackl (8555) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Cask @ CPK. The pour’s medium amber with a small head. The aroma’s pretty soft - notes of golden apple, some toasted brown bread. Faint nose. The taste is far more interesting - very perfumy and lively. I get jasmine tea, rose petal, light herbal hops. Pleasingly sweet orange peel and red berry. Soft chocolate and hints of caramel. Smooth finish. Light body, Wonderful vitality in the texture. Overall, this is definitely NOT another traditional English bitter. It’s certainly a lovely reinvention. Interesting, subtle flavors. Very cool stuff.
