flying_pig (1548) - SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2012
Bottle (500ml):
Sweet malts and some sugar to begin, there is a touch of caramel and toffee plus a slight almond aroma and burnt sugar right at the end. There was some fruity hops and a touch of citrus in there as well.
Clear copper amber in appearance with a tiny, white lace for a head that mainly sticks to the sides of the glass.
Nice earthy malts to begin with along with some lighter hops and sugar. I could detect some caramel and then some bitterness after this with background fruits and citrus also present.
Smooth with a slightly dry feel and medium body. There was mild carbonation and a lot of earthy bitterness towards the end.

An average English bitter really, it was quite nice with dinner and had a solid, earthy taste with good character and depth but the finish was maybe just that little bit too bitter for me. A pleasant beer none the less and one that was highly drinkable and probably worth a try.
