DruncanVeasey (7881) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2015
From a Norwich Chavsda. Red with a half-arsed head. House rust, toffee, papery flying saucer hop. Toffee, red berry, toasted nuts, mellow hop pollen aroma. Fizzy and thin. Unadorned parting bitterness. Softer cashew and toffee popcorn for dessert. Acceptable as expected but suspect it isn’t the best beer brewed in Kent.

seritomi (342) - HUNGARY - APR 18, 2015
Na itt a hatos bitter pakk utolsó darabja. Igaz ami igaz a leggyengébb példány. Külsőre olyan, mint a többi : tiszta, vörösesebarna, vékonyka habbal. Illata már árulkodik, élesztős, szolid komló és maláta. Íze is visszafogott, karamell erős fémes savanykás, kommerszes bukéval. Kevés komlós utóíz, közepesen gyenge keserűség. Kenyeres malátás lecsengéssel.

Bottle at party. Amber colour. Caramel aroma, but really not much. Dull beer really.

olliejobbins (1525) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours a clear chestnut/ruby with a few soapy bubbles for head. Aroma is weak malts, hops and a little caramel. Biscuity malts and hops with bitter finishing taste.

StueyD (1543) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2015
A mid copper coloured beer with a frothy white head. A light, pale caramel malt aroma to start then a fruitiness comes through. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a mildly bitter fruity hop flavour, which soon gives way to a sweeter malt flavour. The finish is led by the bitter hop fruitiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RichardGretton (4471) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2014
Bottle. Vibrant amber looking beer with a strongish white head. The aroma is lightly toffee and hopped, and the flavour is very strongly bitter, roasted and toffee. Overall a strongly flavoured beer, maybe too toffee and bitter after a while of drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Variety pack from macro. This rating is influenced by a hard day at work on a hot Friday. Nice smoky bitter flavour. Amber in colour. Hit the spot.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Appearance: Clear copper/amber with finger thick ivory head. Aroma: Biscuit, peppery, subtle caramel, fruitiness and floral. Taste: Medium/high bitterness, low sweetness and low/medium sourness. Palate: Thick coarse texture, light body, average carbonation, bitter abrupt peppery burnt malt dry finish. Comments: Very bitter and seems a bit unbalanced. Tasty enough and glass lace.

mike_77 (4326) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2013
Clear light brown colour. Balance of sweet malt and bitter hop in the aroma. Flavour is slightly metallic but has some light fruity notes and a dry, bitter hop finish.
