"A full flavored Pale Ale, having a predominantly fruity palate with malt overtones, a subtle hop character gives this Pale Ale a delicate overall palate, making a very drinkable beer."

Served in a snifter from a 500ml bottle. Pours dark clear amber colour with a white head, medium lacing. Aroma is caramel malts and bread with some alcohol laced through. Taste is pretty much following the nose with malts, caramel, bread and some alcohol, bitter-sweet with a subtle bitter finish. Medium smooth body with medium carbonation. Surprisingly, this ale is not ruined by the presence of the alcohol notes at all! Very nice, tasty and enjoyable.

Seffle (455) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2016
Bottle from Morrisons Fort William 160613. Clear dark copper with lasting white head. Malty nose and body. Very faint bitterness, too much alcohol sweetness. Unbalanced. Uninteresting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice malty beer. Liberty not a hop I’m use to. Subtle mellow fruits. Nice. Similarities to great Kentish bitters such as Bishops Finger.

danlo (2573) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2016
500ml bottle from Ken Warne grocery store, Darlington. Deep gold amber colour, off-white foam head leaving alittle lacing and nose of malt, biscuit, earthy metallic. Flavour is malt, toffee, fruity, hop, some biscuit and bready notes, with woody earthy bitterness. Fairly smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry tangy bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

500ml bottle. Clear, copper colour with a thin white head. Not really getting any aroma. Taste is a little caramel and a lot of spice. Bit thin.

Kirkas ja väriltään kuparinen, ei juuri vaahtoa. Maku on epämääräinen yhdistelmä karamellisuutta, hedelmäisyyttä ja rukiisuutta, sekä aavistuksen pippurinen ja katkera. Mieleen jäi melko vaisu, mutta pehmeä yleisvaikutelma. En ehkä allekirjoita sen olevan extra bitter. Perushyvä. (31.1.2015)

beeebon (403) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2015
From bottle pours golden with minimal bubbly head which doesn’t last. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, biscuit, toffee and slight fruit. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and a bit bitter, rather watery feeling in the mouth. Not particularly great but not bad either. Quite drinkable.

overtheline (114) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2015
500ml bottle pours a clear deep amber, very little head which completely disappears almost immediately. Caramel, malt and bit of banana bread note on nose. Taste is malty and sweet. Pretty thin, slight warmth from alcohol and fairly short finish. Pleasant enough but unremarkable.
