look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - medium amber brown with a decent sized bubbly white head
S - caramel, malt, biscuit with some earthy hop
T - lots of sweet caramel biscuit with a strong earthy hop farewell
M - medium bodied and moderately carbonated
O - a little too much sweetness for my liking. A decent brew but by no means one of Bartemans best.

Copper bodied with a huge glorious white foamy head.

Real good nose hops and and floral notes.

Nice balance of savoury biscuit taste balanced against peppery yeasty bitterness

Nice flowing mouthfeel good low key carbonation.

A pint of English bitter.

It's a Pint of bitter. Nothing more. But if you turn it this way and look into it, it will show you your dreams.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of April 2012. Brewed for St. George's day, so I'm a little late to the party.

Poured into a Guinness pint glass. A clear coppery-amber hue with medium carbonation. Produces a head of frothy off-white foam that doesn't hang around. Initially almost no discernible aroma, although it begins to appear as the beer warms up. Caramel malt with stewed herbal notes and a hint of butter.

Tastes predominantly of caramel malt with a dry, herbal bitterness. Distinctive flavour of stewed hops/herbs with burnt notes and hints of butter and solvent/alcohol. Has a slight medicinal quality to it. Mouthfeel is prickly and rather astringent. Stewed leaf aftertaste.

Not brilliant. The malty character and bitterness are well balanced, but I find the flavour of stewed leaves unappealing and dull. This doesn't have anything to set it apart from many other middle-of-the-road ales. Don't bother....

Brown 500ml bottle, brewed to celebrate St George's Day (23rd April), drank and reviewed on 14th May 2011, 12 months before it's BBD.

Poured into an 'Old Speckled Hen' pint vase. It was a lovely amber colour with a good thick head of off-white bubbles on top. The head showed good retension and left some heavy lacing as it followed the beer down the glass.

I prefer my beers to have slightly more malts than hops in their blend, this fitted the bill exactly. Rich (non-sweet) malts hit the nose and carried on into the taste flavours.

Full bodied and smooth, the 4.1% ABV belies it's strength and depth of substance.

I've been critical of Batemans and their trend of brewing so many 'seasonal' beers in the past, but this is really good and I'll be looking out for this one from now on.
