500 ml bottle. Clear amber colour, thin white head. Sweet caramel-malty aroma with oranges, nuts and a hint of grassy hops. The flavour is caramel-malty and slightly citrus-fruity with a mildly bitter hoppy finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can 440 ml from Sainsbury in Swansea (Wales). An at once drinkable and interestind ale. Perhaps a beer that comes out the mix of bitters without interest. Here, the malt is apparent, even if the bitterness hopped takes over. There is a drinkable mixture hop-malt, and that finishes on a bitterness but decent.

Can, 13C. Almost clear amber with a thick honey-cream head. Butterscotch nose with some apples and grass. Smooth mouthfeel. Tastes pretty caramel sweet with a little finishing bitterness. There are hints of sophistication in the malt, but it lacks character in the usual bottled bitter way.

Canned 440ml. Courtesy of Quack-Duck. Amber colored with a creamy, nicely lasting head. Caramel, almonds, walnuts, pear, candy floss and apricot throughout. Good lacework. Enjoyable, but I am missing some hops. Thanks a lot Quack-Duck!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Morrisons. Hazy pale golden colour, medium white head, glass, real fruity aroma of ripe oranges and lime. Very low carbonation, smooth, oily mouthfeel. Taste is rather on the sweet side, citrus fruit with a hint of bananas. Refreshing but smooth hoppy finish. Very likeable, robust pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper colour with a small head. Reminded me abit of Boddingtons with its sweetness and low carbonation. Familiar name from the WRU jersey. If this is a quaffer in Wales seems a good endorsement for the place.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours with a large white head over a amber gold body. Aroma of bread, biscuit and golden syrup. Taste of golden syrup and marmalade with a citrus pith like bitterness and a sparkling mineral water like dry finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
440ml can. Dark copper colour with a large evenly spread thick beige head. Smelt almost like whisky when poured, strong alcohol aroma despite fairly low ABV content. Sharp acrid taste that wasn’t unpleasant, with a medium level of bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml bottle. Amber color, white head. Slightly nutty aroma with some hops and caramel. Slightly skunky flavor with fruity notes and more nuttiness. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Not really my thing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can (thanx to Quack-Duck!) Amber coloured, smaller, but quite stable beige head; caramelly-sweet nose with a fruity-hoppy background; mild sweetish-bitter flavour, relatively light bodied; slightly lingering fruity-malty finish with a light hoppiness. Not bad, but only a shadow of the cask version.........
