Bottle. Sweet malty and caramel aroma. Pours copper brown with a small off white head. Light roasted malt and some grassy hops on the palate. Fairly thin and watery body. Nothin’ special here.

clear ruby brown with small tan head. the beer had a faint malty aroma backed up by some floral hops. good creamy medium light body and a soft carbonation. great well rounded malt flavor, slightly plums and chocolate, with a decent bitterness. it was a very mellow and smooth drink

Hazy copper with a decent white head. Grain, toffee, malt with straw in the nose. Metallic bitterness with a sweet caramel finish. Average.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2007
(Glad I got one before it went extinct!) Pint bottle. Amber brown with small but sticky head. Mild aroma of chocolate and plums/prunes. Malty with hints of toffee, dark fruit, and a bit of chocolate. Some hops at the end, but not as much as I expected. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Not bad.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2007
Fairly standard English bitter in a bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small head. Aroma of caramel malts and a musty grass hop aroma. Taste is mild sweet caramel offset by a fruity grass hop flavor.

milewide (2260) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 15, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2007 Is this new or old? Bottle says Young’s Dirty Dick’s Ale "From the Ram Brewery". Modern bottle with flared bottom. 5.2% alcohol . "Best before 17 AUG 07". Red amber color. Mostly malt aroma and taste. Decent ESB IMO.

Dedollewaitor (16176) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2007
brown amber with stable and lasting white head. Aroma is sweet of sugar, malts and fruits.. Smooth , creamy light watery mouthfeel. Nutty & earhty. Good lacings. Dry end. Drinkable!

BREWMUSKCLES (2696) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2007
not bad for an english bitter. still a lot of these bottles around. decent hop fruitiness. light and smooth malt character with an creamy component. ok but nothing spectacular. just a good mouthfeel with decent taste.
