There’s not much memorable about this one, good or bad. It’s distinctly average.

Bottle. Pale Gold. Barely any aroma, slighty fruity and a bit of pear drop. Sweet, fruity, buttery, zero hopping. A mess really.

hawthorne00 (2428) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2010
Amber, small beige head. A little remaining carbonation. Smells of honeyed orchard fruits and hard spices. Moderately sweet with some biscuits and some sticky caramel. Gentle but lingering bitterness. For a bottled bitter this is fine.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2009
Quite the surprise packet. Lots of subtle complexity right through the nose and palate; minerals and gypsium, peppery woody hops, and a band of smokey fruits right in the back palate. Very subtle but I like the way it doesn’t try to force the issue.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 11, 2009
bottle, pours deep gold with a thin white head. Aroma is floral hop and light hay. Light malty flavors end with a light bitterness. Easy drinker, but kind of boring.

Good solid citrus flavours and a far amount depth. That said the typical english EPA but abit on the better side.
