Voivod (304) - Como, - AUG 2, 2003
Pale amber colour, with a big persistent and creamy head. Fruity aroma (plum and apricot). The flavour is well balanced, quite fruity (pineapple, apple and plum), with a light hoppy finish. Refreshing.

50cl bottle at Hartley restaurant in Dalton in Furness. Appearance - golden amber with a decent head. Nose - honey and toffee with just an annoying whiff of butterscotch. Taste - honey and cornflakes. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - not special but inoffensive.

Grzesiek79 (3148) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Slabe piwo. Chyba nie wiele razy sie zawiodlem na angielskim piwi, ale tu strasznie. Przezroczysta butelka (nie lubie takich) do tego mala piana jasne zapach ledwo wyczuwalny. Smak lekki lekko owocowy, po przelknieciu troche goryczki w tle ale nie wiele. W calosci piwo dla mnie nawet nie jest bitterem, a co dopiero ESB. Tak wiec nie polecam

prawlie (1110) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
500 mL bottle into a pint glass. Amber, gassy, with plentiful bubbly head head. Very nice citrus/pear and hops aroma. Crisp, slight bitter fruitiness, hint of lemon acidity. A bit of caramel. Pretty decent for an English bitter.
