Bready Nutty, Malty Dark amber in color.
The smell is pretty much all malt and in my opinion not very enticing. Exceptionally light bodied and highly drinkable, a wonderful ale. Taste like golding hops on the back end. This is a malt forward beer. This is one of those beers that shows there is no reason that ales can't be as light and refreshing as lagers are. I would like to hops to be a little more pronounced.

Pours into a nonic a deep russet color with a thinner off white head atop,the color is quite deep for a bitter.Aromas of biscuit malt and a bit of tin,not much hop presence wich I didn't expect anyeay.Flavors of biscuit malt and a bit more cake-like sweetness,light but noticable leafy hops in the finish.It's a no frills bitter,don't look for big flavors,look for session-style and it it wins at that.

Poured from a 14.9oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a coppery brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains honey, caramelized malts, tea and some hops.
T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel and honey. Then some breadiness from a thin malt character comes in along with a very mild hops presence to create a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Smooth and a little crisp but a bit watery, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, very mild kick, not the best representation of style, it’s not a bad beer but there are others in the style that I would choose first.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.
A nice creamy and somewhat large two finger tall head. Body color is a real nice copper amber and crystal clear, with a deep dark Indian brown reddish appearance. Very nice looking brew.
Mild sense of biscuity like malts, with a hint of sweet cream. Some faint hint of herbal hops slightly, and some pine like bitterness. Pretty solid.
Palate hits with a nice sweet mix of classic biscuit and soft caramel flavors. Good blending of sweetness and caramel tasting like malts it seems. Finish even has a light tea and herbal hop mix, with a hint of nice simple "bitterness" to match. Creamy filling palate, and a bit of fruity ester quality to match. It's all here.
Flavorful. Super easy drinking and fairly straightforward for a bitter no complaints.

Poured from 440mL can into a pint glass.
Appearance: medium brown-orange hue with a clear body and a moderately strong effervescence. Head is a finger of creamy ivory foam. A nice-looking beer!
Smell: slightly sweet malt aroma with plenty of caramel and a little bit of musty dustiness. All very proper, although not as enticing as I feel it could be.
Taste: an interesting dry-sweet dynamic is going on here: it starts off dry, but in the middle is a shot of slightly sweeter caramel character and the finish is a lightly bitter and, again, dry element which is reminiscent to me of a dry Irish stout. Tasty enough, although this is definitely a subdued and workaday brew.
Mouthfeel: medium body with quite a good carbonation and concomitant creaminess. It almost hits you like a nitro-widget can beer, but the richness and creaminess stick around far longer than a nitro brew. Quite good.
Overall: this is a completely decent bitter, but it doesn't reach out and grab me in any good way. Totally acceptable, but not really remarkable.

Dark cherry beer with little head after pouring into an imperial pint. Aromas of fruit, grass and bread. Flavors of fruit, biscuit, toffee; has a leafy aftertaste. With its subdued flavor and light body, this would make a fine session beer were I ever to find myself in an English pub.

Poured a clean dark amber, very clear with a sticky tan head.
The smell is very english, minerally and lightly sweet with a touch of hops.
The flavor is spot on english bitter, lightly sweet with a bit of biscuit and a light mineral quality and a smidge of english hops.
The mouthfeel is light and a touch dry.
Very easy to drink, light yet interesting, a solid session bitter.
