500ml bottle from Aldi - Clear golden colour with a thick creamy head. Nose is wet cereal, tastes a bit watery at the start, but survives with the palate a bit. Not a guid ale really, not sure what it is aiming to be.

Nice floral aroma almost camomile. Pours golden with rapidly disappearing head dry and short finish average beer would only drink every Preston guild.

AshtonMcCobb (3552) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 19, 2015
On cask at the Standing Order. Appearance - amber with a nice head. Nose - oats, honey, maybe even toffee. Maybe some nuts too. Taste - confirmed as above kinda like Hobnobs. Palate - close to medium bodied with creamy sweet texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - it’s not necessarily guid but it is decent.

StueyD (1352) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
A mid to dark amber coloured beer with a thick and frothy off white head. A dusty malt aroma with a light fruity hop background. Dry mouthfeel. The taste mirrors the aroma, with dry, dusty, malt flavours, biscuity and a touch of caramel. This is then matched by a very mild bitter hop flavour, with a hint of grass and fruit. The finish is long and dry.

harrisoni (14619) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle from Aldi and drunk at home. Clear amber colour lasting thin beige head. Touch of malty sweetness and fruit on the aroma. Then a spicy malty flavour in the mouth. Faint hop on the finish. OK, drinkable enough.
