From can, at 3.8 ABV, pours a cloudy Amber colour with a good head that disapates to a thin layer. Aroma lemon, passionfruit, citrus. Taste pretty much follows the nose.

650ml bottle conditioned, poured into pint glass. a bit pricey ($AUD14) lets see if its worth it.

A - orange/brown, cloudy with some tiny black particles (no residual noted in the bottle). Pours a creamy white head that dissipates quickly into a thin lacing.

A - very strong fruity (lemon, passionfruit) hoppy nose with pine aromas, would be a nice air freshener.

T - very strong citrus (lemon) taste, with a moderate hoppy bitterness and grassy tinge. The fruity taste is very strong and masks everything else. bitter citrus finish.

M - moderate body, moderate carbonation for an English Bitter, oily texture

O - glad to say it was worth every cent. The big citrus hit is very refreshing, and mixes well with the bitterness to be expected of an English Bitter - the bottle conditioning is apparent. Unlike a typical EB, this is more enjoyable ice cold than room temp. Plus the low ABV makes this very sessionable (if a bit pricey for antipodean fans). Give it a go anyway.

Bottle that has been in the fridge for a while now.
This beer is an amber color, slightly cloudy liquid, big and foamy head of white head.
Smells of lots of hops, tropical fruit and citrus. Malt background comes through eventually.
Flavor had more citrus hops, lemon and orange rind to start then more earthy hops at the end. Finished with malt caramel, slightly toasted malt to balance hops. Smooth and easy to drink. An enjoyable (but a bit pricey) example of an English bitter. Actually better as it started to warm.

My second foray into the Moor beer portfolio, and another example of the bright, fruity, fizzy vibe these guys seem to be gunning for ... Successfully. This beer is a semi-cloudy honey amber color with a gigantic amount of off-white foam ... The bottle kept frothing away and I wondered about an infection, although fortunately the tell-tale flavors were not present. Bottle conditioning gone mad I reckon. As was the case for its blonde sibling Somerland Gold, this one smells bright and fruity, lemon-lime hops leading the way, a hefty helping of green grass and verdant chlorophyll keeping up, and some mellow tropical notes. I could not really get much malt initially, although this improved a ton as the beer warmed up. Although things started off a bit flat and one-dimensional, the complexity became more apparent over time ... Woody nut shells with a little lemon and orange peel were joined by a floral earthy note like Darjeeling tea, peach, unripe pineapple, mint, and a pleasant crystal malt caramel chew along with some toasty notes. Some earthiness and white pepper spice prevented things from getting too sweet. Recalls an IPA in hop flavor if not bitterness but less aggressive. A nice evolution in the right direction ... Let it warm up as the English do.

Poured into Victory shaker.

Pours a nice golden orange.

Aroma is complex. Highly US-hopped- pine. Get a lot of that honeyed malt character which reminds me of BrewDog Hardcore. Also get strong pineapple coming through.

Taste features more melding of pineapple hop and malt.

Mouthfeel is decent for the ABV with medium carb.

All the complexity of an IPA in a lower ABV form. A great revival.

22oz bottle - thanks to Sylvain for this

Appearance - Hazy copper colour with a small size fizzy off-white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 3 minutes and there appears to be some particles floating around.

Smell - Malts, caramel/toffee, hops, grapefruit

Taste & Mouth - There is almost no carbonation and I can taste hops, malts, and caramel/toffee. There is also some some buttery notes with a touch of grapefruit. It ends with a malty sweet aftertaste with a bit of a lingering hop bitterness.

Overall - This bottle was a little out of date, so probably not hr best example. I'd like to try it fresh to give it a fair a shot. Still a decent beer, just nothing extraordinary.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a small foamy head with limited retention and almost no lacing. Aroma of dry hops with light bitterness notes. Taste is a mix between dry malt backbones with some dry bitter hops notes. Body is quite full with limited carbonation. Not bad and probably a hops profile that was faded due to age of bottle but still interesting nonetheless.

660ml bottle, part of a swath of new English microbrewery offerings available 'round here.

This beer pours a hazy pale amber hue, with less than a finger of crackling, soda-pop-esque white head, which bleeds away quickly, rendering little in the way of lace anywhere near this affair. It smells of bitter earthy, noble hops, and caramel malt. The taste is biscuity, crackery malt, and mild, but still very agreeable earthy, citrus hops. The carbonation is very sedate, the body light, smooth, and a bit airy - kind of a cask experience in a bottle. It finishes barely off-dry, with a little malt malt and even fewer remaindered hops.

Not seeing this kind of beer in these parts very often, it's hard to immediately appreciate its subtly - malt, hops, and alcohol, all in perfect proportion, but well fettered, so that I may drink more. Good thing, as that Rogan Josh I've been waiting on deserves a nice 'bitters' accompaniment...

Lovely bitter from a bottle at Mondiale 2012. Grapefruit experience, soft understatd carbonation, well malted backbone. Great drinkability.Almost no aroma, but bottles need to arrive here by spring, so hop oils would weaken by then. I would love to have this very fresh.
