Had this at McNellies, what a treat!
Poured amber/caramel with 1 finger of tan head. Some bubbles clinged to glass through & had decent head retention & very good lacing
S: Apricot, pears & biscuitty malt
T: Nice orchard fruit presence mingles with herbal hops & biscuitty malt up front. Herbal & slight citric hops surface as this warms, along nice fruittyness & some caramel. Finished crisp, semi-dry with a bit of herbal hops. Most Authentic bitter I've had since being in England!
MF: Medium bodied, creamy with great balance
Drank like mother's milk; highly recommended if you come across it!

Pours a very cloudy dark amber with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of malt, bread and tobacco. Malt follows through on taste with a bit of bitter caramel. A bit of oil on the tongue with some carbonation. Very quaffable beer. Nothing spectacular, just solid.

Pours a darkened amber color, a nice, heavy wood tone. Quite cloudy. I can just see the shadows of my fingers through the full glass. The head is cream-colored and creamy. It's a medium-thick blanket of foam that sticks on top of the beer for a good long time. Solid lacing. A doughy, rich malt flavor comes out as the strongest note in the aroma. There's also a good dose of caramel and some light, earthy hops. The hops make a stronger showing in the taste with a gentle bitterness and a mix of floral, earthy and grassy flavors with a touch of citrus peel. The beer is drier than expected, which is a pleasant surprise. It has a clean, rich malt character that steps aside to let the hops balance things out. Very easy to drink. Relatively low carbonation. Smooth, creamy feel. It manages to hit a rather British-y balance, which is generally hard to find among American takes on British ales. Good stuff.
