With a malty town this English Bitter is simple yet flavorful. It appears dark brown in town with a simple small head. It has a simple taste that lingers and leaves you coming back for more.

mR_fr0g (10613) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle at home picked up from Watford Sainsbury’s. A very clear copper coloured pour with a lasting off white head. Aroma is big harsh skunky grassy hop, onion, sileage, fermented grass, hint of brown bread. Flavour is composed of nutty mlats, iron, blood, rusty penny, nutty twiggy malts. Little chalky in the finish. Palate is semi sweet, thin, highish chalky carbonation. Not very good.

Bottle. Amber in colour. Malty, biscuity malts, caramel. Fruity; light citrus notes. Hoppy; floral hops. Sweetish malty fruity with floral hops. Dryish hoppy finish. OK. Drinkable. (2011-05-28)

Pours golden copper. Aroma of spicey slightly irony hops and some caramel. Taste is sweet, light, some mild citrus and spicy earthy hops. Not bad, better than Shepherds Neame’s attempts

jjsint (2679) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2016
Bottle round a friend’s. Golden honey brown, clear, with a fizzy white head. Malty smell with some oranges and clove. Taste is malty sweet, with earthy hop in the finish. Toffee aftertaste. Confused and not all that.
