Enjoyable nice Pale Ale. Not strong in hops or any other particular flavours. More straight down the middle and easy to drink

hawthorne00 (2262) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Amber with an inch of white head. Floral aroma with hay, white peaches, oranges, some berries, light spices. Light bodied, rather fizzy. Bittersweet taste with honeyed hay, rather more grapefruity citrus than suggested by the aroma. Dryish and fairly bitter at the end. Hoppy and refreshing. Damn that Tricky-Woo.

BlackHaddock (3201) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
500ml Bottle: BBD 28 Sep 14, poured into a UK pint sleeve on 15 Feb 14. Nice looking brew, light amber body with a good head that lasted well. The nose was a blend of light malts, hedgerow fruitiness and woody notes. The taste was also a blend, with the malts just about winning the battle with the hops that have now turned slightly citrus in nature. Dry bittering finish with a long aftertaste. Not too bad at all for a 4.0% ABV session ale.

danlo (912) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear golden amber colour, foamy white head leaving alittle lacing and aroma of malt, toffee. Taste is malty, with caramel, toffee & light citrus notes and some earthy bitterness. Light bodied, medium carbonation, dry metallic bitter finish. Quite OK

maeib (8404) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Bottled 29/01/14. A golden coloured beer with a white bubbly head. Really quite bitter and a touch one dimensional. Yorkshire dryness. Obvious pasteurization. Better than the cask version but it’s still dull.
