Soil Association accredited, organically grown Chariot malted barley is used to make the mash for this excellent beer. To provide the distinctive fully hopped character we add organically grown Goldings hops. The result is a unique, full-bodied organic best bitter with a refreshing after-taste, highly commended by the Soil Association. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2017
500ml bbFeb18 from en route Yorkshire - These medicine bottles are ever-widening their export circle, - so far it seems not just on account of the (still small batch from this microbrewery?) brew. - Amber-beige pour. Aroma of beeswax, wet pasture on toast, older blossom and cereal. Mouthfeel and carbo are just right for my kind of bitter, but the flavour and especially malt and hop profile seems unfocussed (more tha unbalanced): dry, yet sweet nettle butter; organic green tea and cereals. Hm.

I drank this beer from 500 ml bottle, a nice bottle.It is light in alcohol (4.1) but has a great aroma a bit toasted and grassy, very bitter.The body is medium - full, fizzy carbonation but not too much of it.

ThirstyBird (2925) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2017
From the bottle, pours a clear light amber with a light tan head. The smell is mineral, toasted malt, grass. The taste is toasted malt, mineral, bitter and dry. Light+ in body with average carbonation.

Towey1989 (2818) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear amber colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of toasted, bready malts, some caramel, slight fruit, a little toffee and subtle spicy hops. Taste of bready malts, caramel, some fruit, a little tea, a hint of orange, maybe grapefruit and slight spicy, herbal hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, spicy, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. A surprisingly good bitter. Lots of hops and a pleasant malt base. Good.

Bottle. Orangey Amber in colour. Very Hoppy; intense earthy resinous hops; quite distinct hoppy bitterness throughout. Fruity; bitter citrus-lemon & grapefruit. Malt base; buttery caramel. Full flavoured. Dominated by intense bitter hops. Dry throughout; lingering very dry finish.. (2010-06)

MelvinKalksma (1536) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2016

Aroma:
Slight aroma of malts, caramel, bread and tea.

Appearance:
Clear/hazy amber/red beer with a slight/medium white/off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts slightly/medium sweet with malts and caramel; ends slightly dry with bread and tea.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. Did not really want to say it is balanced, but figured that’s because there is almost nothing to balance. Watery, sweet and dry; that’s it.

1.1
Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
- braun-rötliche Farbe mit geringer Schaumbildung - leichte, kaum wahrnehmbare Aromen nach Apfel und etwas Karamell - gute Carbonisierung - geschmacklich dann aber nur noch bitter verbunden mit einer unangenehmen metallischen Note - im Abgang dann nur noch wässrig und herb Fazit: Seltsames Gebräu

jjsint (3094) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Handpull cask at the Lattice House, King’s Lynn. Tawny brown, clear with little head but a fair bit of foamy lacing. Tannic British hop to the fore with hints of funk and leather. Taste is mostly bitter and sour, very dry and again lots of tannins taking the lead. Far from exciting but certainly a flag bearer for the classic British bitter.

3.3
Swaroga (2217) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 5, 2016
Juicy malts, creamy texture, light carbobation, bread skin, black tea, juicy malts, noble, moderatly strong bitterness. Good thirst quencher.
