COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Originally brewed by Thwaites, the brand was contract brewed at Marstonís Wolverhampton plant (Banksís) from 2013, then bought completely by Marston in March 2015. The brand initially continued to be sold under the Thwaites name and logo, but by 2016 the Thwaites name had been dropped.
"This rich amber beer is brewed with only the finest English ingredients. A prominent hop aroma and bitterness throughout is finely balanced with a full malt flavour, leading to a dry bitter finish."

BigDUK (13) - West Yorkshire, - MAY 8, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2009 dark amber, with clean pleasant aroma. A touch astringent in the mouth, nothing standing out in the flavours sightly doughy/biscuity. Nothing wonderful.

Lagerboy (2113) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2017
500 ml can. Clear copper, firm lasting fine light tan foam. Aroma and taste of mild caramel malt and mild British hop. Mild carbonation, mild body, mildly hopped. Nice enough. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Tranquillity (2178) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2017
Canned. Copper color, thick brown head. The aroma has molasses and brown sugar, the taste is mellow but thick and sirupy.

BeerLieutenant38 (32) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 12, 2017
500ml bottle. Cloudy brown colour, slight grassy and herbal aroma. Minimal off white head. Medium bitterness. Fairly thin texture, little or no carbonation with an ever so slightly astringent finish. Certainly not the best bitter Iíve tasted, but a satisfactory one nonetheless. Iím fairly sure I will buy it again at some point and give it another go.

prawlie (1546) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2017
Bottle. Clear copper colour with a rapidly disappearing head. Dry, fruity flavour, malty and clean. Just a little lacking in flair, but easy to swig.

Godfather50 (233) - SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2017
Nothing interesting about this beer. Reminds me of Courage Best in cask just got the edge over Hoffmeaster. Tastes mass produced and characterless. Little hop aroma but then I would expect much. Difficult to deliver a good bitter from a bottle.

Freaky_tiki (1167) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2017
Can (which is funny) from local LCBO. This is the beer your mother warned you about. Nice can design; shame about the beer. Syrupy & sour. Crappy beer. Bad representative for the style. Thereís a local British inspired brewery within a short drive of where you live that can do a better version of a bitter. Shitty. Avoid.

zacgillbanks (4901) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2017
Bottle from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. Amber coloured with a thin white head. It has a malty, toffee and sulphur flavour followed by a roasted and fruity finish. Not bad.,

Bottled 500ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Clear amber coloured, small off-white head, mild caramel nose. Sweetish malty, light caramel, herbalish hoppy and slightly watery with rather bitter finish. Drinkable but usual bitter.
