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 (2129) - 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.

mabuzzer (459) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2015
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 (368) - 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 (105) - 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.

mariuszek (909) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 16, 2015
Average bitter. Some caramel and biscuits here, a bit of sweetness, hint of hops and that’s it. Drinkable.

Alexi91 (437) - Bristol/Romsey, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Origin: Bottle. Vessel: Pint Glass. Supplier: ASDA (Bristol). Pours a copper brown. Taste is fruity but doesn’t quite resolve.

SangreSani (389) - Głowienka, POLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Copper colored clear beer with very short head. Grassy or herbal aroma (as in Pilsen hops). Some paper and butter. Slight hints of naphthalene. Light bitterness, quite high sweetness. Has flavor of dark malts. Full body, oily texture.
