12oz bottle, drank out the bottle, review from notes jotted down last summer
smell is malty, bready with touches of hop (lemon, grass, dank) and spicy clove. taste is bready yeast, earthy hops, some roasted tones.
an original summer beer, not very spectacular

Maybe I just don't have enough experience with English Bitters, but this beer didn't sit so well with me. Had on draft at the Times. Clear amber-reddish color, perhaps a little lighter than that. Grainy flavor that you'll occasionally get out of Scottish beers. On tap, average carbonation. It just didn't sit well with me for a Summer beer, better directions to go in for something like that out there.
Serving type: on-tap
