Bottle; golden brown, moderate white head; aroma is malty; taste is cereals and bread, lightly toasted; yeast in the background; quite bitter; finish is quite long - more bread / cereal; fresh, thirst quenching and good; in a word: arable.

A nice premium bitter this one, though not much like an IPA. Nicely balanced caramel malt with earthy hop bitterness. Also, for a bottled bitter it isn’t over carbonated and it has a nice slick texture. Yum!

Aroma is malt and cereal, could not detect hops... Not promising for an IPA. Taste is lightly bitter with cereal, and butterscotch tones, with a lightly pine finish. Mouthfeel is nice and rich.

Pours a brown colour, taste is malty and toffee like, an ok beer but a bit of a dissapointment and uninspiring

Smooth textured light copper coloured ale with a disappearing bubbly head. Has a good identifiably pale ale aroma with a small fruitiness. It’s more stubborn in its flavour and has a graininess. Slips down the palate with ease.
