They call it a bitter, but I think with this hopping it's more of a pale ale.

Copper-bronze with an offwhite head, good retention & lacing.

Aroma of Marmalade, citrus & caramel.

Hops are really upfront in the flavour. I'm not generally a fan of UK hops (EKG & Fuggles), but these are great (whatever they are). Plenty of marmalade & citrus with a great bitterness. Some caramel & biscuity malt flavours really back up the hops. Good stuff. Leaning towards a 4.5.

Moderate body, very drinkable.

What they say:
"The use of crystal malts lends this beer its flavour and colour profile. Tempered with hops from the United Kingdom, this English bitter is an appetizer on its own, or a fine accompaniment to a roast beef, pork or chicken entr��e."

Serving type: on-tap
