Lloydy (100) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
500ml bottle from Aldi, 3.8. Subtle aromas. Bronze in colour. Malty, fruity with a clean bitter finish. Strangely reminds me a little of Rich Tea biscuits!

MarcinG (380) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Butelka 500 ml. G??boka bursztynowa barwa piana biala i pocz?tkowo zaskakujaco obfita. W zapachu przyjemne zapachy chmielu i orzechow. W smaku wodniste ( bardziej niz normalny bitter) malo w nim procent. Jest jednak bardzo orzezwiajace i bardzo "pijalne". Ciekawa goryczka na finiszu plus chmielowo -orzechowy -ziemisty posmak

Cunningham (6671) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2015
Clear deep golden color with a fine white head. Toffee, nutty, fruity and herbal. A really nice and tasty bitter. Especially at 3,8%. Medium body and a fine carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness.
[Bottle at Ormidale Hotel in Brodick - Isle of Arran, Scotland]
