BOTTLE 50CL. Look: medium amber and clear with an off-white smallish frothy head with below average retention. Aroma: Caramel, toffee, some acid (even wine-like) notes, sourish fruit too. Taste: sweet, caramel, fruit, a pleasant acid note with a bitter and astringent finish.

Relatively bland beer...disappointing taste and flavour - hard to tell from anything else. Avoid

jmgreenuk (5531) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 8, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Poured a clear medium amber with a round white head. The aroma is light malt hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a hop bitter, slightly metallic palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Fine for a session... as long as it’s short!

A great beer. But then again I like golden ales so I'm probably gonna like it. It pours a medium dark amber hue with hints of red. It's got a very wet feel to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

teddybeer (2531) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle. Golden colour with a large white head, leaving a nice lacing inside the glass. Aroma is toasty, English hops and light nuts. Flavor has a decent bitterness with nutty hints. The final has a good bitterness with a dry sensation.
