500ml bottle. Poured with a mostly fading, soapy white head & a clear amber body. Overall, a pasteurised malty, caramel character. That’s backed by some biscuity malt on the nose. Light & dry on the tongue with a slight grassy bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation & a short hoppy finish.

I bought this in the Adnams shop in Richmond. First thing I was say is that the colour is great. Clear red/golden/copper colour. Very little head, Someone else said that the aroma was a bit like freshly cut crops and I have to agree with that. I can taste citrus, raisins and there is a very slight ginger or spice flavour in there. The first taste I had I was not that fussed, but it seams to get better after a few mouthfuls. Long lasting after taste. Its very mild, I mean I could drink a lot of this. Now really keen to know what this is like on tap.

Gary (1394) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2010 (Pasteurised bottle.) . : Ok ,yo this is a pretty refreshing amber coloured ale. Notes of earthy malt and spicy hops are a nice marring. Eazy to sink .

Smells of wheat fields after they’ve been harvested. Lovely copper brown colour. Wonderful mouth feel; thirst quenching. Initial leafy flavours and hints of mustard followed by a big nettle-hop bite. A light body and long bitter finish help it along no end. A really good session bitter.

Bottle in Craig’s house. A basic beer that is alright but nothing special. Pours with some head and a transparent brown colour.

SaintMatty (5258) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2010
500ml Bottle - Amber in colour. Fruity aroma with berries, dried fruit, spicy malt and caramel. The aroma also reminds me of Shandy Bass (I’m getting nostalgic now!). Nicely balanced taste with fruity and hoppy notes vying for attention. The taste has notes of caramel, spicy malt, dried fruit and peach. An awful lot of flavour for the strength.
