3.21/5  rDev -18.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into an English pint glass.
The appearance was light burnt orange to copper color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off immediately. Sliding messy lace.
The aroma had a nice laid back toast to biscuit maltiness flowing over some grassy to earthy hops, somewhat dirty with the expected diacetyl.
The flavor was malty sweet with the expected diacetyl coming about and punching the aftertaste as expected.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation was nice and low. ABV felt as projected. Smooth malty and buttery finish.
Overall, well, I get it and understand that the English have brewed a Bitter here, me, I'm not so sure if I'd have again. Still, I can't quite tell if it's their yeast or not.

Bottle. Amber in colour. Thin bubbly head.
Grassy aroma with caramel.
Diacetyl immediately apparent. Quite malty for a bitter.
Moderate body and carbonation.
Good example of a true bitter.

Pours light copper clear beer with decent off-white head. Fresh aroma - caramel, grassy hops. Mild taste with delicate bitter note. Solid, but non-essential bitter. Light body, low carbonation.

Pours with a sort of amber / bronze color and virtually no foam. Also it's lacking some carbonation perhaps.
Smell is sweet and malty, with some hops oin the back, but it's got that bourbon / medicine aroma also present.
Taste is nice, slightly sweet at first but decently bitter afterwards. It could be better with a bit more carbo, but still a decent one.
