12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - NOV 1, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2012 50cl. bottle. It pours an unclear light copper liquid with a very high pillowy white head and some good lacing. Roasted, a little caramel and fruity. Medium bodied. Nice, toasty and drinkable Bitter.

Pours golden with a thick creamy head and high carbonation. Light nose with hops, pineapple hints. Taste has earth, hay, hops, biscuit, slightly metallic and short mildly bitter finish, slightly watery. Palate is a little dry. Okay but nothing special.

MrBlueSky93 (362) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours orange-amber with a 2 finger head that quickly goes away. Aroma of caramel, biscuit and light citrus. Taste of initial Caramel, then biscuit, some fruitiness, a touch of sweetness, vanilla and honey, then we get orange peel and lemon zest. Good!

Golden with a white head. Aromas of citrus and caramel. Good body. Surprisingly good, full and complex for a 4.7% beer. Would definately buy this again.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2015 Pretty flipping nice. Caramel notes, a touch of honey too. Yum! A little grapefruit on the nose. A sticky dry aftertaste but not unpleasant. Nice deep golden colour. Will buy again.

Clear golden with thin white head, sharp on tongue, fruity citrus. Better when initial fizz has died down.
