The_Osprey (2385) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
500ml bottle, BB Jan 2016. Totally clear orange amber, sparkling, small foamy white head and some lacing. Aroma is mainly sweaty socks, wet dog, drying laundry. Body is medium to light, pretty smooth, very low carbonation. Taste is wotsits up front, but this dies down quickly, thin with light bready malt, some tangy hop in the finish, right at the back of the mouth. Drying. The flavour isn’t that bad. Better than expected.

DuffMan (7220) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle, shared with my father in law. Slightly hazy orange, light gold head that leaves delicate lace early on. Light caramel, grains, tea-like tannins, soft mouthfeel, low bitterness. Easy drinking but nothing special.

GregClow (2932) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle from Marston’s Classic Ales gift pack at LCBO. Light copper-gold body with a medium sized head that disappears quickly. Mild aroma of light caramel, bit of nut hull, quick hint of cut grass, smidgen of orange oil. Simple flavour of caramel malt, orange blossom hops, and a slight metallic tinge in the finish. Nothing really wrong with it, just rather boring.

mR_fr0g (4373) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle at home in northern Ireland. Clear golden coloured pour with a fleeting small white head. Aroma is caramel malts, berry, light dried fruit, little nutty. Flavour is composed of caramel, light twiggy malts, orange peel, light dried fruits, bit of chalky water. Palate is semi sweet, bit thin, moderate carbonation. Meh.

shoestring (291) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Run of the mill, malty taste. Bit unbalanced. Prefer Marston’s epa if I want weak session ale

JohnRMurdoch (3506) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2014
500ml bottle from a friend. Orange brown, reasonable head. Oaty grain resin malt aroma. Leafy malt flavour. Bitter aftertaste. An old fashioned traditional supermarket bitter.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2014
Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The aroma is quite light. A bit metallic with a touch of sweet toasted malt. Pretty bland bitter really. A touch of fruit and some soft spiciness.

JohnCook101 (372) - - DEC 20, 2014
Clear red copper, small off-white head. Light biscuity aroma. Not much on the palate. Biscuit, very light floral notes, a little fruit. Slightly watery. Not unpleasant, just... meh.

garthicus (2746) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle picked up by my mother in Liverpool. Appearance: Light red, quite a thick off white head. Aroma: plastic, grainy, very sweet, sickly. Flavour: sweet, sickly (again) light grain, some very slight bitterness. Not good
