Level 42 Bottleshare. Thanks to Danny. Clear amber beer, small white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry and has reasonable fine carbonation. Smooth malts, mildly sweet and a trace of cream. Bitter dry floral hop. Some dried fruits. Harshly bitter spicy finish. Pretty robust.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2017 From a bottle, pours datk copper with a thin lacey head that's gone in a second. A nice hoppy aroma and a sweet, bitter taste with a strong grapefruit note.

July 2017 - Bottle picked up at Waitrose and shared as an extra at Mr Tipple's 5K after-party. As 'St Peters Organic Best Bitter'. Be it known that I love these old-school St Peter's bottles, even if the contents are not always inspiring. Pours amber orange, lightly sparkling, foamy off-white head. Aroma is very bready – bread crusts and rye. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is spicy and bready, slightly salty, dusty and astringent finish. Good old school hop character. A perfectly decent old bitter. (5-4-4-4-13=3.0)

Bottle split with my father-in-law. This isn't too "extreme" or out of the ordinary. Instead, it's just a pleasant, well-made pint of bitter, with a strong malty sweetness backed by a good amount of hop bitterness at the end.

Rich malts, grain, cereals. Clear gold, medium, creamy, off-white head. Medium bitter. More grain and cereal malts, light floral malts, grass, wet straw, soft carbonation, light bodied. Decent Bitter, yet nothing to crazy. Bottle shared at L42 tasting - thanks to The_Osprey!

Bottle shared in London - thanks to Danny. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. Simple dried bread in the nose, citrus rind. Light sweet flavour with noes of cereal, rind, pale grains, pine needles. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with husky bitterness, more citrus rind, hay, bread crust. So so.

bartlebier (4123) - 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.
