In 0.5L bottle. Pours copper colored, clear. About a finger of cream colored head with very fine bubbles. Aroma is grassy and herbal. Fully body. Very sweet and fruity. Not all that bitter, actually, but lots of flavor.

• Trademark slightly funk raincoat smell (this one a bit sourer) [MAINLY GOLDINGS HOPS]. • Body: an initial dry body-check, slight nuttiness? [SOME DEMERARA SUGAR], then chalky fade. • Aftertaste: a bit of English-bitter-style aftertaste.

mR_fr0g (8283) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle at home pocked up from Sainsbury’s. Light amber / orange coloured pour with a lasting loose off white head. Aroma holds pronounced English yeast esters with berry and hedgerow, nutty grains and a little unrefined sugars. Flavour is composed of nutty grainy malts, a little stale, berry and earthy hop. Slight dry mineral quality to the water profile. Palate us semi sweet, dusty on the tongue. Finish is semi dry. Moderate carbonation.

ianwelby (1019) - SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2015
(Bought as a bottle of Sainsburys Yorkshire Bitter) Clear, lively amber beer with a thick frothy head and a slightly sweet, hoppy aroma. Flavour is a slightly odd mix. Initially a sweet, fruity hit with a strong taste of apples, the sweetness quickly making way for bitter hop and then ending up with a dry, malty finish.
