This definitely sets the standard for English Bitter. It is delicious, full flavored and consistently enjoyable.

From a bottle into an imperial pint glass
A: amber, clear, minimal head
S: caramel malts, plums, raisins, a tinge of floral hops
T: follows the nose, but also some nuttiness. This is quite good. Toasted whole grain bread, then a lot of caramel and toffee, together with some nutty flavors and very slight and subtle dark fruits. Floral hops come in at the margins. Ends with caramel/toffee and nuttiness.
M: Smooth, toasty, low carbonation; pleasantly filling
Overall: do I really need to hop the Atlantic to find this on cask somewhere...?
