Bottle from Tesco Exmouth. Golden colour, very malty with only a shy Touch of hops in the short finish.

AROMA: Not a lot of aroma. Mostly Malty notes, maybe some citrus notes from hops. Not much esters, maybe a little bit of dough. APPEARANCE: Crystal clear orange in color. Thin white head. Fair amount of CO2 TASTE: Light malty flavors dominate the profile, with medium bitterness in the finish. PALATE: Medium to medium-light bodied beer. Bitterness leaves the mouth dry. Finish is long with a nice malty flavor popping up at the very end. OVERALL: I have most definitely had better bitters, however this is drinkable. Just nothing to write home mom about

Clear orange amber body with a thick white head. Aroma is malt, dough, some hops. Taste is sweet with mild bitterness. Dry bitter finish. Standard stuff.

chinchill (2713) - South Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2015
500 ml bottle with a BB date of 31 March 2016. This a low priced compared to most other local beers and, unfortunately, this shows in the quality. The malt load is low for style, shifting the balance to some earthy hops. On the positive side, it’s certainly drinkable and looks OK in the glass.

It is so damn boring. And smells bad. Wet cardboard, sour cabbage, animal feedstuff. Jeeeeeezzzz. Sticky and tiring taste. Awful.

TedE (368) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2015
500ml bottle into pint glass. Very little aroma. Amber golden beer with thin head. Chalky spritzy mouthfeel. Aftertaste is fruity and malty. Slight hop undertone. Quite nice.

Pours reddish amber, small white head which quickly dissipates. Dry mouthfeel. Not sweet. Mildly bitter. Slightly vinegary/grapey on the finish. I don’t taste the Fuggles at all.

sarauckelman (244) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Clear amber, no head, Malty, grainy aroma and taste. Very light on the tongue, both in flavor and mouthfeel, a bit sticky on the end. Nice minerals. Pretty average all around.
