A well balanced fusion of malt & floral hop, with a clean dry citrus finish.

Gold, lasting creamy white head and gentle condition. Gentle fruity hop aromas with a touch of toffee sweetness. Quite sweet in the mouth with a hint of caramel and a low dry chalky bitterness, short sweet and slightly chalky finish.

’Spritzy’ it how I would describe mouthfeel. It improved as it warmed up (served too chilled). Maliness was there - and hops came through.

Really roasted and hoppy taste with an aroma of citrus and zingy lemon. Nice,

Westkyoto77 (518) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 6, 2013
Honey brown, pretty white head. Reasonable nose of hips, some fruit, settled hay. Didn’t quite get the citrus that was talked up on the bottle, but some nice hops. Medium body, pretty smooth and creamy. Rounded finish, fairlly sweet aftertaste. At 300 yen for a 500ml bottle, I’d call it good value.

Not a bad little brew for 300 yen. Wafts of lemon, citrus rind and malt. Clean crystal malt body, floral hops and a lemon citrus finish. A pretty damn good budget beer.

dynamiteninja (1491) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle. Orange amber body. Medium white head. Spice, orange peel, grassy, lemony, fruity. Bittersweet. Dry finish. A kind of minerally aftertaste. A little oily mouthfeel, and fizzy on the palate. This beer is like a flavoursome lager.

Own brand with the distinct Shepherd Neame textures, but has too much body to it.

BlackHaddock (3645) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2012
Clear 500ml bottle, best before Feb 2010, drank Jan 2010 and poured into a vase shaped pint glass. Looks the part, good golden amber colour with a deep, rich, off-white cream coloured head. Bubbles could clearly be seen rising up through the bright beers body. Some heavy lacing was produced by the head as the beer was consummed. Ingrediants listed; Barley Malt (95%), Crystal Malt (4.2%) and Hops (0.8%). The hops used must be aromatic ones because they came out in the aroma very well, along with the malts. The malts dominated the taste, but not turning the beer into a sweet drink or overly malty to be honest. There was a bitterness throughout the tasting, a typical English bitter feel to it really. The beer was pleasant without setting the world alight with its flavours or mouthfeel. This is brewed for a supermarket shelf and is good value more than a good beer. I’d give it to friends, but might hide the bottle before they saw what it was!

DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2012
Aroma is rather traditional but flavour is fresh and fruity mixed with a honey, rather than biscuit, taste. Very smooth and very drinkable. An absolute steal at £1.59 a bottle! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
