AtronSeige (1038) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 12, 2015
Aroma: Medium-light spicy, earthy. Medium-light caramel. Light berries. Appearance: Brilliant, dark, gold body. Thin, off-white head. Flavour: Medium-high bitterness. Light sweetness. Medium hoppy, earthy, berries. Medium caramel. Dry finish with lingering bitterness and light hoppy astringency. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Light carbonation, creamy. Overall: The astringency is unwelcome, but the beer smells and tastes great. 500 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 8B. Special/Best/Premium Bitter

Swaroga (1827) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2015
Uninteresting beer. Dull aroma of bread, sugar and herbs. Flavour the same with some delicate but present bitterness reminding me herbs. aftertaste is short. Filtered with small head. The colour is copper.

Martin243 (946) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Live rating of a 500ml bottle from Lidl: (£1.29, I think). Orangey fuggle hop aroma. Amber clarity with a creamy white head. Orange flavour, creamy sweetshop Wham bar, and digestive biscuit flavour. Is that a hint of nutmeg? Ooh, I like this... slick in the mouth, bitter finish, with lovely quietly assertive Englishness.

StueyD (1542) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2015
A mid amber gold coloured beer with a frothy off white head. A light zesty hop and biscuity malt aroma. Dry mouthfeel. A mild bitter taste to start, pithy citrus fruit and a touch grassy. This is then followed by a dry biscuity and cereal malt flavour. The finish is balanced, with an additional spiciness. Bottle from Lidl, Fakenham.

BeerViking (3477) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Dark gold with a lasting fine white head, nose is lightly biscuit grainy with a pleasant spicy and lightly floral hoppiness, palate is dry-bitter with an earthy and vegetal bitterness. Nicely bitter golden ale in the modern English vein.

Benzai (11360) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2014

harrisoni (15794) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose and drunk at home. Clear amber colour with thick lasting beige head. A golden bitter really. Having had the regular bitter yesterday, this is about the same but with some slightly less brown malty flavour and less peppery bitter on the end. Good standard golden bitter though. Some biscuit in the malts, some bitter sting on the finish.
