Bottle 50cl, ruikt en smaakt naar noten en een vleugje karamel, mooie roodbruine kleur, weinig nasmaak, aangename verrassing in de mond. Drink ik zeker nog een keer.

Bottle. Pours a clear ruby brown colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of caramel, red fruits, some bready malt, a little cherry and slight spicy hops. Taste of caramel, red fruits, some bready malts, a little raisin and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, bittersweet, fruity bitterness in the finish. Nice fruity aroma with follows on into the taste. A little sweet but a subtle spicy, fruit bitterness. Decent.

Bottle from local bottle shop. Aroma is malt, caramel, nuts, toffee, butterscotch, fruity notes, with a slight smokey touch. Flavour is above medium sweet with a fairly bitter finish. Body is light to medium. Not a bad Bitter, has some rich malty nutty flavours.

MelvinKalksma (1311) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, nuts, bread and roasted malts.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque red/dark brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and nuts; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread and roasted malts.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma could have been stronger and the palate less average. Tastes good and is a decent beer overall. Fails to satisfy me, like all Bitters so far.

Diabobale (484) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - SEP 25, 2016
Di color rubino con riflessi aranciati e una schiuma quasi assente, al naso presenta sentori di malti caramellati e carruba. Al palato si avverte il caramello e lamaro speziato della segale, con un finale terroso. Corpo esile, carbonazione bassa, ottima secchezza.
