Default Almost Organic Special Bitter

This isn't the final version but close enough to get some feedback.

Thoughts?



Thanks to SuperiorBrew for the high res hop photo.

I think it's beautiful. You incorporated so much -- the ingredient pix, the logo, the "mission statement," the bottle return plea -- and yet it's still a clean look. I think all the horizontal lines accomplish that.

You've got a typo: Please return this bottle to it's...
Should be: Please return the bottle to its...

I like it, and I agree 100% with everything already said.

Another nit pick...it's "bottle conditioned," not "bottled conditioned."

Very nice, I like it. The part about returning the bottle, along with the recycling logo, is a nice touch.

And it looks like you misspelled "orginating", it should be "originating". Nice job!

I prefer the first one... It has just enough simplicity to work great...
