500 ml bottle. Rated @ 28.12.2009.bulldogops (2850) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
Copper brown colour with a small white head. Malty aroma with caramel malts and nuts. Flavour of mild bitterness, nuts and malts. Medium bodied with slicky mouthfeel. Average.
500mL Bottle from the LCBO. Clear copper amber pour with a weak bubbly head that appears only after an extremely aggressive twist of the hand near the apex of the pour. Aroma is very earthy, smells of pasture and a sweet malty whiff. Low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Taste is fairly subdued maltiness with a faint, nearly indistinguishable hoppy kick that dries out the finish with a bitter note. Refreshing beer. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2010

Bottled. A chestnut coloured beer with no head. A really good fruity aroma with berries and sweet maltiness. Similar in the mouth. Good fruits and nice depth. Surprisingly good.

Fairly average bitter, not sure how it has won awards, some caramel in there not unpleasant and fairly drinkable Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a brown-amber color with a white head. The aroma is earthy and dirty hops with some toffee. The flavor is similar. I get some toffee and earthy hops and something that resembles iced tea. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2010
La robe est presque noisette. La mousse est présente pour quelques secondes. Le liquide offre des parfums discrets de toffee, de fruits et de houblons herbeux. En bouche, quelques morsures du houblon avec la présence forte du malt caramel. Corps moyen, texture douce et finale propre à une bitter anglaise. MaBeer1972 (2204) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 21, 2010
Bottled version. Copper color. Malty-buttery flavor with a thin mouthfeel. This one is about average compared to the other English bitters I have sampled. Spab (4218) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2010
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear copper with good-sized white head. Aroma of floral hops, light caramel malt and slight fruitiness. Flavour has sweet caramel, mildly fruity maltiness and floral hops with some tea character. Mild bitterness in finish. Ok.
