scotty (1040) - SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2005
From Morrisons Berwick-upon-Tweed, part of a 4/£5 deal. Lovely deep gold in colour, clear(no yeast in the glass), head thin but it lasts well! Wonderful well balanced hop/malt nose,attractive citrussy fruit. Smooth textured, medium bodied, BIG on flavour, lovely fresh hops with good malt to balance. A very satisfying glass of beer.

Smaczne wytrawne piwo, dobrze nachmielone. Aromatyczne i przyjemnie pachnące. W dodatku jest to organiczny bitter.

Blasphemies (45) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2008
Bottle: Some bottles foamed over on open unfortunately. Nice copper colour. Slightly bitter and fruit taste, somewhat hoppy. Was at the LCBO in Ontario, discontinued now, I believe it was seasonal special.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Bottle. A - Clear, golden-orange bronze color and a lot of bubbles with a large, fluffy, foamy, creamy white head with great retention settling into a thick creamy and sticky lacing. S - Definitely an English smelling beer with a good amount of grassy/herbal/tea hops coming out on top of a slight caramel malt base. Also a fair amount of honey aroma and a touch of citrus, yeast, and mineral as well. T - Initially there is a pale and slight caramel malt, sweet taste. This quickly gives way to the English hops, with a grassy/herbal/ tea like flavor coming through pretty strong along with hints of spice. Some fruitiness (apple and pear) comes out as well, followed by some orange like citrus. This leads to a bit more floral hop taste along with a touch of toasted bread flavor. Mineral flavors come on at the end and linger after the sip. Slight bitterness from the hops through out, but it isn’t all that bitter. M - On the lighter side of medium body with a good level of carbonation. Pretty smooth and a touch of a tingly feeling and a drying finish. D - Very drinkable beer with a lot of different flavors and a nice balance of hops and malt. Very much a sessionable English beer. Easy to drink, and continues to grow on you as you drink it. Notes: Best before 31/12/10. A very nice, solid English session beer. Very nicely balanced and easy to drink. Doesn’t stand out as amazing, but it continues to grow on you as you drink it.

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle 500ml from Meladel (King&Godfree). Exceptional bitter, with a great nose. Aromas of biscuit, caramel, nuts, and hints of flowers. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy persistent head.

OKBeer (1170) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2007
500 ml bottle, best before 02 May 2008. Lightly hazy golden orange colour with a thin but mostly lasting frothy white head. Fruity, lightly bready, grapefruit, and woody aroma. Orange, light bread, and caramel malts with a citrus, woody, fruity, and lightly perfumed bitter finish. Medium bodied, juicy and very quaffable. One of those beers that just begs you to drink more. Almost comes across as a light version of an IPA.

One of my favorite breweries in the whole world - absolutely terrific beers. Found this brew in Auckland, NZ. Slightly sourish. Terrific aroma. Mild lager flavor.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2007 Spicey, perfumey nose, possibly a hint of mint - leafy and fruity. The body is big with sweet brown sugary malt and leafy hops. A great bitterness in the finish whirls around the mouth with some malt following it around. What a great, well-rounded and complex organic beer!
