Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, - OCT 13, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2008 A decent attempt at a bitter, with a quaffable character and good balance. Some typical features of bitters are there: the copper color, the carmel nose and body, and the fine hint of hops that lingers in the aftertaste.

Re-rate Feb 08: Pours copper color with nice thick solid lacing. No nose, when I finally coax something it smells like old dirty socks. Mouthfeel is soft. Strange flavor profile: the hops aren’t assertive enough to cover the mildewy malt taste and yeast is detectable. I know there is a good beer hiding in here somewhere. Its character floats to the surface like a half-dead fish.

TBone (18106) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2016
Tap at brewpub. Amber color, steady medium-sized off-white head. Earthy hops, some sweetness in the nose. Light-bodied. Earthy, honeyish, rustic English ale.

thome50 (1295) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Tap at the brewpub. Pours a light brown to orange with white head. Aroma is slightly floral and hoppy. Taste is mildly bitter malty brown ale. Just doesn’t stand out for any reason.

On tap at the brewpub. Comes a somewhat cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt and fruit. Taste is malt, caramel, and citrus. Pretty good.

3 ounce sampler at the Grovetoberfest Miami beer festival 10/13/12. Very good.

dwyerpg (6378) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Has a definite creamy almost soapy aroma. This is a bit indistinct but has some malt and is quite smooth. Unfortunately, some of the soapy flavors come through at the end.

A good flavorfull bitter with no strong after-taste. Best to drink it cool. Great value for money

BVery (11241) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Tap. Orange pour with a white head. Musty bready malt in this, plus some hop kicker. Okay.

gnoff (10859) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2012
Draught at Titanic on January 21, 2012
Sort of hazy amber color, white head. Malty, bread, cream taste. A bit flat and bitter aftertaste. Moussy mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Sort of sweet scent.
Standard bitter, though could perhaps do with a less ABV, so you could session it even more.

Not awful. This certainly does not taste like a bitter one would get in the UK, but it is indeed drinkable. Not much of a nose, but there shouldnt be too much of one. Tasted like fugles hops. A little grassy / bitter.

3.2
markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2011
On draft @ Titanic. Pours slightly hazy yellow-orange with a receding, soapy white head. Nose is buttery and slightly biscuity malt with background hops. Flavor is similar with biscuity malt, background citrus hops, and miscellaneous bitterness. Light to medium-bodied ale that finishes with lingering bitterness. Interesting take on the style.
