metalspice (963) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2017
Klart, nøttebrunt med skum som holder lenge. Lukt og smak inneholder mye karamell, noe høy og sitrus. Avslutter med en lett metallisk smak og en ubalansert bitterhet.

kubmal (297) - POLAND - DEC 27, 2016
Dark amber colour, nice head. Aroma of earthy and spicy hops, caramel and dark bread. Taste is dry with some caramel, light roastiness and some mineral notes, low, but noticeable, grassy bitterness. Very sessionable, a bit watery.

500ml bottle. Dark yellow, amber colour. Thin, white head. Grassy, slightly caramelly, malty, slightly sweet aroma. Bitter, slightly malty at first. Hints of caramel snd bitterness in the middle. Bitter, slightly grassy finish. Bitter aftertaste with slight hints of malt. Rather light bodied, low carbonated, drinkable, simple bitter.

une jolie bière épicée, avec des notes de caramel et d’agrumes. un long gout de malt est à noter

2.8
VueltaBirrista (104) - Murcia, SPAIN - OCT 19, 2016
Lo primero que enamora de la Spitfire es su color cobrizo. Es una bitter en toda regla, clásica, agradable y cremosa. Recuerdos todo el rato en boca de malta tostada. Puede que no sea la mejor cerveza del mundo, pero sí muy fácil de beber, para tomar sin demasiadas prisas.

samjdix (59) - - OCT 8, 2016
A nice beer but quite average. Lots of malt on the nose and in taste, which I don’t normally like but it’s well balanced with fruity hoppy notes.

3.3
FCox143 (44) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Aroma: slight citrus but mostly toffee. Appearance: deep amber in colour with minimal head. Taste: toffee again, very light, a little watery. I don’t trust beer out of a clear bottle!
