Nice amber pour with thick creamy head. Good lacing. Beery aroma with subtle malt sweetness and even subtler hops. Flavor is very light but inoffensive and clean. Body is very thin but velvety. A very attractive beer that is very easy to drink. A near perfect session beer.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a gentle hazy orange to brown color with a one finger soft white foamy head that once it dissipated there was some really nice soapy clingy lacing gracing the sides of the glass. The smell had a nice English maltiness (construed to some as being "soapy") but if anything I understand it to be the English malts aligning themselves with the fuggles hops. So, eventually, a decent sweet toffee with a light caramel does come out. The taste was mainly sweet with a toasty edge to it. Light toffee comes forth and spreads out around my taste buds. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body and rolls really smooth all around. Overall, mmmm...great bitter well worthy of having again. Pass the fish n ’ chips!

Noe sur/søtlig duft av frukter. Klar gyllen farge. Tykt hvitt skum. Søtlig smak av frukter med en god ettersmak

440 ml can. Pours a clear golden orange with a very small, white head that fades quickly. Sweet aroma of caramel malt and a light fruit note. Sweet flavour of caramel malt and fruit with a mild, bitter, hoppy finish. Light body with a smooth, watery texture and flat carbonation.

ClutchMasterson (40) - Aiea, Hawaii, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours a rich golden yet clear from a pint can. Very elaborate head that has a classic nitro formation which settles to a 1 finger thick head that doesn’t quit. Has a sweet maltiness with a slight metallic twinge. Hints of bread linger as well. Has a wheat bread taste that drops off to mild hop flavor with little to no bitterness. Hints of dough reside as well. Has a slick mouthfeel to it. Overall not a bad brew and pretty refreshing.

Poured from a can, very thivk cream that hasnt dissipated yet 5 minutes after pouring. Copper color with a bread sweet smell. Taste of hops, dough and caramel. It is like Guiness stout, but a lot less harsh, and has a smooth sweet finish. Not bad.

TizzleJizzle (620) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Pint can. Poured an attractive golden yellow color with a massive frothy white top and tons of lacing. All downhill after appearance. Taste of watered down bread malts with a subtle hop bitterness finish. Boring low carbonation, creamy medium body.

Can (with a widget). Golden yellow with a thick, dense white head, just like a Guinness. Light malty caramel aroma. Very light, smooth flavour of light, creamy malts - very smooth and easy drinking, but not much flavour.
