Rogue Brutal Bitter

Burnt copper color with a thick white head.
Not much aroma, slight citrus and a touch of spice.
Grapefruit sourness to start with a thin but slightly creamy mouth feel. Lemon like middle with a very sour finish.
Reminds me of sour sugar coated gummy candies like fuzzy peaches.

Fullers ESB Champion Ale

Even as I was pouring this brew I could smell the fruit and raisin scents wafting up from the glass.
It pours a dark clear copper colour with a generous white head, and looks like I always think a British ale should look.
The aroma in the glass confirmed my first impression, lots of dark berry, raisin and date aromas with a hint of alcohol to lift the smell to your nose.
The feel is full, rich and creamy with a sparkle to keep you interested.
Tastes confirm the aroma. Lots of berry and raisin with a bit of dough and grass mixed in. The hops come through more earthy than citrus and with a lovely bitterness which just balances the berry.
This one is a keeper. It leaves a great dry sparkle in the mouth and just yells for another sip.
I wish this was on tap at my local. I'd make it my regular brew.
It's like the session beer I wish I had as a standard.

Pours a burnt red color with a good sized white head.
Aromas are fruit, citrus and just a hint of alcohol.
Very nice creamy mouth feel. That's the way an ale should be in my opinion.
Very fruity flavor with a bitterness from the hops and the alcohol. It is a sparkling kind of feeling after a couple of sips that make you want more.
I just find the alcohol taste a little to strong for me. I've had stronger brews that didn't have as much alcohol after taste as this one.
All in all still quite good although the folks at CAMRA probably wouldn't agree with me.
