Despite the name, not bitter at all. Light on the palate and gives way to a multitude of flavor as it warms up. Overall you can't go wrong with this one.

Very tasty... Fruit. Nice bitter finish. Really light on the tongue.

A solid beer. Nice bitterness and flavors. Nice carbonated taste and aftertaste. Bitter at first but and mellows out in the finish

Light amber color, off white head, moderate carbonation, excellent clarity. Malt, biscuits, bready, caramel, brown sugar. Earthy Fuggles hops. Medium bodied, smooth. The ESB world standard.

Good beer, very mild in taste, we enjoyed this beer chilled, warm was ok, good poker night beer with chilled cups and a cold beer fridge.

24JUN12, Fleet Street Pub, Nashville, TN Tastes similar to the London pride with the bitterness taking more of a prominent role. Bitterness is not overwhelming.

Full bodied brew, somewhat sweet malt with nice bitter hop finish.
