Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a reddy amber colour with quite a good and lasting head on it too.

Smells quite malty and sweet like caramel.

Tastes rather bittersweet with some nice medium malts and hops to balance it out.

Overall a decent drinkable bitter.

This is the second beer I've had from the 2010 70th Anniversary of the RAF's Battle of Britain collection (I got four different ones).

Lovely amber look, off-white head on top, some good lacing hung around throughout the tasting.

Malts in the aroma and in the taste, mildly roasted shortbread biscuits came to mind, but with as much salt and sugar in the mix.

A very easy drinking session beer, it was reviewed 3 months after it's Best Before Date, but you couldn't tell.

Pours strawberry with a steady ecru head that patches and rings. Lemon, husk, and golden syrup on the nose.
Butter biscuits, pecans and sour grain quickly overtaken by piles of spicy (Goldings?) hops. Gets both more floral and more bitter as it warms. Sweet comeback, tingly starfruit linger and a bit of salt. Medium, chewy but crisp, round.

Impressive! Proper amounts of hops and some malt intricacy. +.5 to drinkability for the sub 4% ABV.
And if Wolf do this well just for a charity brew, I wonder about their regular lineup, too.
English bottle bitter at its best.
