From yesterday.

This has a rich nose for 4.4%, like any good bitter worth it's weight in BMW badges. The caramel and toffee is quite rich, with subtle hints of peach and apricot on the fringes. The flavor profile is similar: I taste lots of caramel, backed by light peach. Seems simple, but it's more interesting than what I'm describing. The feel is somewhat flat and warm, but naturally dry. A fine bitter that unfortunately gets lost in the sour-IPA-and-stout craziness that is Asheville's beer scene.

3.43/5: A nice but standard example of the style; hey, it scratches the cask bitter itch really well

On nitro tap at the brewery taproom.

Pours clear and very dark amber with a decent head and excellent lacing.

Aroma: malty with a touch more hops than expected. Some nice spicy notes.

Flavor: low bitterness. Odd combination of flavors.

Smooth, near medium body with good carbonation.

Overall: OK

Pours nice light copper color with awesome clarity and fluffy off white head

Lots of English hops in the nose, plenty of English malty goodness

Classic flavor profile for English bitter. Bready, slightly roasted flavors balanced by strong flavors of English hops

Very light bodied and barely carbonated as it was on cask. Leaves pleasant bitterness as aftertaste

A fine example of an under appreciated style of beer. I wish more breweries would make this style.

Fairly subtle toasted malt in both aroma and flavor, with a light punch of bitter hops rounding out the flavor profile. There's a bit of a minerally finish.

Pours into an imperial nonic a deep rich copper/bronze with a thin soapy-like head atop, a nice traditional looking pour here.Caramel and toffee dominate the nose with just a hint of iron,not much hop profile detected.A mix of sweet caramel/toffee and earthy hops make for a nice quaffing ale,I think for the style this beer is very good.The earthy hops make this beer in my opinion,take it for the style it is,it's a really good beer.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear copper with a bright white head. Thick sudsy swathes of lace. Smells earthy and floral with an underlying mix of ripe citrus and buttered cracker. The taste has a crisp citric bitterness to it, which is set against a tight bready feel across the back that has a splash of butter to it. The mouthfeel is lighter to medium bodied with a crisp and lively feel to the carbonation. This is quite tasty and very easy drinking. I’m glad I grabbed a pint.
