blankboy (6444) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2011
Bottle (500ml). Pours a clear golden-orange with a small diminishing white head. Aroma’s quite mild, grainy, with a bit of sweetness and honey -- not much hops at all. Flavour’s grainy, lightly hoppy along with some honey and a short average bitter finish. Average bodied. An O.K. beer, needs more hops.

dynamiteninja (1664) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2013 Bottle. Thin white head, moderate retention. Amber body (Not gold!). Biscuit, whiff of suplhur, piney hops, Marris Otter, some Black Sheep yeast and slight floral notes. Bitter. Very dry on the finish. Somewhat of a higher quality take on Pedigree. Better than Fuller’s DIscovery. A good summer thirst quencher. 6 3 7 3 12 #### Bottle. Seems to have subtly evolved into a different beer. Golden body, thin white head. Nose is hoppy with spice, fresh raspberries and Coca-Cola. Sour, but I detect sugar added. Dry finish. 6 3 7 3 12
