This is what I think of when I think of English Bitters. Beautiful reddish brown color with a nice rich head of foam. Clean peppery taste with a warm bitter aftertaste.

This was the best bear I had in England this trip.

SERVING: Bottle


A:
Pours a clear copper with a nice two fingers of off-white head that gassily settles over a minute and a half or so to pretty nice cap . Decent retention; some bits of lacing. (3.75)

S:
Bready and sweet. White pepper, bubblegum, brown sugar, biscuit, minerals. (4)

T:
Fresh and clean with a mineral character. Bread, lemon, tea-like astringency, pepper, slight medicinal tinge at the end. (4)

M:
Light-medium body, well-carbonated, almost thin, very drinkable, nice spicy finish. (3.75)

O:
Very nice approachable yet complex English Ale.
This is a surprisingly zesty, yeasty, spicy ale with a hard water quality to that is quite drinkable.
Pours nice enough and features a really phenolic, spicy nose and a dry prickly taste. Very drinkable and a good fall beer.
Would have again; good beer to try, great inoffensive beer for people trying to get into better beer. (4)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into an English pint glass.

A- Burly, frothy pale white head, persists well. Lace is abundant. The body is slightly hazy and copper in color. 4.5

S- Sweet and biscuity or cracker-like, with a floral and grassy hop aroma. 4

T- Sweet caramel is balanced by a dry cracker flavor and grassy hops. Floral hops make up the finish. 4

M- Creamy and medium-bodied with mild bitterness and a bit of dryness. The sweetness is light and pleasant. 4

An enjoyable beer that I can easily toss back, yet still find some good flavor in.

Pours a deep golden color. Very nice lacing, much more pronounced than the head. Aroma is of sweet malty and some bread. Tatse is sweet malts, balanced well with a touch of bitter hops. Might be a liitle too complex for me as a new rater to give a more detailed opinion. Overall, well balanced beer
