Tom303 (83) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Pours deep amber/brown classic bitter colour nice think head, aroma is quite sweet toffee and slight orange fruity. Taste to follow with a lovely balance of bitter sweet flavour that lingers and finishes quite dry and bitter. Very nice and strong flavour for a low strength beer

kerenmk (2371) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 15, 2014

hohops (284) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Pours a bark brown/copper colour with a foamy head. Aromas of malty sweetness, dried fruits, raisin. Taste is quite complex for the abv- bitterness, with a bready, malty backbone, plenty of raisin and fruits. Very good example of the style.

TET (1642) - FINLAND - JAN 31, 2014
A coppery beer with an almost medium and blond head. The nose of strong toffee and sweetness, red berries, also some dry wood. Taste of nuts and toffee, dryer than aroma, some fruits and wood. Almost medium bodied with medium carbonation, nicely smooth to drink. Quite dry end. Nice beer, traditional bitter but fluent to drink and not musty.

sschwab (48) - London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle at Christmas. It's a really decent traditional bitter with nice busy orangy aroma and palate. Lighter and fizzier than it appears, and perhaps more than would be ideal. I've had loads of dodgy cask pints of this, and the bottle is far more reliable, if a little misleading.

gegwilson (1157) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Dan. Pours amber with a white head. A bit of a soapy citrius hop lavour dominates. This has too much of a watery feel and is below par for me.
