HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2008
Bottle 500ml. from Waitrose, Christchurch. Pours a clear amber with medium off-white head which does not last. An aroma reminiscent of burning rubber. Quite thin mouthfeel. Refreshing session ale.

A little thin and a bit too sweet. Not enough hops - overall, fairly bland

imdownthepub (13028) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2007
Bottled, 500ml, pasteurised. From Tesco, Banbury. Gold to amber beer with slight white head, carbonated. Sharp, slightly chemical flavoured beer with thin mouth, palate. Some hoppy character but little to go on. Pretty average beer.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2007
Bottle. Thin. Minerally malt flavours and enough bitterness to be drinkable. Quyite fizzy and suffers from being in a bottle.

scotty (1137) - SCOTLAND - NOV 16, 2007
A good best bitter style, nice burnt gold in colour, the white head dies slowly and leaves an attractive lace. The palate is initially quite sweet but that fades and is replaced by a gentle bitterness that lingers awhile. Morrisons Carlisle...or was it Asda????

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2008 Page 62 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide. Had this beer at the brewery just a yards away from the Yorkshire squares.Leafy, herbal, dry and complex. Only 176 of MJ’s 500 Classic Brews to go.

Sweet cereal nose with a slight peppery undertone. Pours pure copper with a quickly disappearing head and good lacing. Taste is excellent - some honey, some grapefruit/citrus, and a long bitter finish with just a hint of acidity at that level that enhances rather than detracts.
