Bottle. Bronze with a medium head. Slightly bitter with maltiness in the background. Subtle bitter finish and certainly an above average example of this style/

jercraigs (7894) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
2014-06-27. Crisp dark copper brown body with a modest foamy white head. 3+ Aroma is hoppy with a UK hop impression that I can’t quite place the nuances of, mild malt throughout. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, fairly malty throughout, caramel malt notes. Overall hop and malt impression is familiar, pretty similar to your average UK brews that cross the pond. Average bodied palate, carbonation. Cask at Blackfriars, Glasgow

Niall73 (1806) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2014
Gravity pour at Beer Rebellion, Gipsy Hill, 08/06/14. Pours a dark amber. Aroma has some apple, grass and a little sourness. This appeared to be very close to the end of its life and I did mention this to the bar staff who tasted it and thought it was fine. Didn’t seem that way to me. Anyway... Tasted of green apple, lemon, some woodiness, hint of caramel and it was unpleasantly sour. Poor.
