cgarvieuk (14193) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 23, 2008
Bottle at home... This is one of those beers that i wasnt looking forward to that much but from the first taste found to be a delight ... slightl hazy amber ... sweet metalic nose not so nice ... sweet (prob why i liked it ) fuirty juicy and in tasting (not drinking) the metalic flavour is more present ... on drinking the metalicness is barly noticible and your left with a nice caramel malt with a ligth hop

harrisoni (13596) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2008
500ml bottle from Sainsbury. Brakspear yeasty aroma, with some hop and some toffee malt. Itís clearly a Brakspear beer, that yeast aroma is very distinctive. Some hop sting on the end. Fine.

imdownthepub (10139) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2007
Bottled, 500ml, pasteurised. From Sainsbury, Banbury. Amber gold with slight white head, some carbonation. Boiled cereal grain flavour with a touch of sulpher. Some bitterness with a tea like hop. Sorry, not for me.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2008
Bottled. A nice orange gold coloured beer. The aroma is piney hops with a bit of grass. Nice hoppy flavours. A suprising hop bite seeing itís F&G. No nasty pasteurized notes. Nice.

Fin (7364) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2007
Bottle from Sainsbury, Heyford Hill, Oxford Poured light golden in colour with white head. Nice fruity slightly crisp and hoppy beer with a lovely smooth balance between bitterness and honey sweetness. Really enjoyed this beer.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2008
Signature yeasty aroma with honey, sherbety fruit, sulphur, musty Goldings, pencilly conifer. Some citrussy hop, Fairy Liquid lemony soap and almond in the mouth. Smells promisingly yeasty, but ends up dominated by nasty lingering bitterness and nuthusky/shampoo afters. Really average pasteurised bitter. Amber with slender white lid.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2008
A Mes rate (Actually an Elena rate): 50cl bottle from Shamansburys.
Looks like beer. Very very see through. Like condesed piss. Like first thing in the morning when you are away on holiday and you had too much to drink the night before. Slightly chemical, a wee bit like puke in the morning after too much cheap vodka. I could manage a pint but no more. I wouldnít recomment this one, itís not that nice. Quite Basildonian.

Mes: Erm... I have to pretty much agree with Elena.

Bottle from Sainsburys. Pale amber with next to no head. A standard bottled bitter. Some fruit and grassy hop aroma. the flavour had a touch of sweet malt and a dry finish. Ok.
