jmgreenuk (7475) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 17, 2016
Cask at the Crumpled Horse, Upminster. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt, light hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light smooth grainy malt, hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

alexmate (57) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
A fairly average ale. Pours a dark gold colour with a big creamy head. Nose: difficult to detect. Some caramel, malt and a slight vomit like smell. Taste: the caramel is present, some slight metallic taste and some slightly floral bitter hops. Not bad just very unremarkable, reminds me a bit of Bass bitter. Price paid: £1.

berkshirejohn (5956) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2016
50cl bottle from Morrisonís, Bracknell. An amber pour with no head but light carbonation; caramel malt aroma; fizzy in the mouth with a caramel taste; nd then a lightly astringent finish. Rather poor.
Earlier Rating: 9/23/2010 Total Score: 2.7
50cl bottle from Aldi. Pours amber with a rapidly fading white head; light biscuity aroma; typical stewed malt flavour of an over-pasteurised beer; some more dry biscuit to finish. Actually quite pleasant.

BlackHaddock (6235) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2016
New version at 3.8% ABV and in bottle form (500ml). As the name suggests, this poured an amber colour, an off-white head sat on top. Light malty lead in both the nose and taste, but a bit bland and uninteresting to be honest. Glad it didnít cost much.

JPC1524 (112) - Devon, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle from Morrisons. Amber pour with white fluffy head. Malty with subtle spicy hops. Decent enough bitter, quite forgettable.

ndburns (150) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2016
500ml bottle from Asda. Pours clear bronze with small white head. Aroma is all malt. Flavor mostly is too, quite sweet but with a bitter finish. Nothing special, but nothing to complain about either,
