500ml bottle from Marks & Spencer, Watford. A gluten free beer. Not bad, but fairly standard bitter. Filtered within an inch of its life!

Sweet malty aroma. Full palate, smooth, soft palate. Rich orange, creamy head. Big sweet malty taste. Bitterness low, just a gentle twiggy hint. An easy full-bodied bitter.

Grzesiek79 (4250) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Swietny Bitter, tak metny jakby lopate piachu dosypac, niespotykane to w brytyjskich piwach. Piwa stoji niczym snieg zima na szcytach Himalajii. Piekna rosnie wnet jak ciasto drozdzowe w piekarniku. Kolor pomaranczowy, metny, zapach cytrusowy z dodatkiem chleba pszenno-zytniego. Kwaskowa nuta lekka towarzyszy po kazdym przelknietym lyku. Super.

jjsint (2924) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Handpull cask from the Clarendon Arms, Cambridge. Light brown with a trace of terracotta. Small looseish ring of off-white head. Very little aroma. Some earthy, woody, vinous notes. The malty sweetness is overlaid with a tasty woody astringency. Medium body. It is a fairly average bitter, tasty enough but not one to go out of your way for.

prawlie (1578) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle into a pint glass. This tasted a bit odd to me, but its got good body and is a good balance of bitter and soft sweetness. It left a bit of a dry taste in the mouth.
