downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle from Asda. Silk Tork describes this beer perfectly. Amber, with no head and slight carbonation. Weedy malts, some hedgerow fruits, a touch of caramel and moderately bitter finish. Thin mouthfeel and a bit dull all round.

SilkTork (5542) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2015
500ml dark bottle from Asda. New design. Itís drinkable and reasonably tasty, but kinda thin and dry and boring. Professionally made but characterless.

RichardGretton (4639) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle. Amber beer with a reasonable frothy head. The aroma is toffee with yeastiness and bitterness, and the flavour is also toffee and bitter with yeastiness. Overall a nice English style pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a finger and half of head on a clear medium straw body. The aroma is grain and honey. The taste is grain and lemon bitter. The texture is smooth with low carbonation. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Ok on the edge of my hoppiness. Leaves a taste which some probably like. Not that strong a taste but not one of my favourites.

floydian1 (1355) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 25, 2014
500ml bottle (new label, 4.2%, BB 2/9/15). Clear pale golden with an average white head. Aroma and flavour is light biscuity/bready malts with a mild-to-moderate flowery hop bitterness. Good clean lightish palate with a soft carbonation making for easy drinkability. A nice session golden ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
