Bottle that Dad shared- cheers. Light amber with a moderate white head. Some lemon, lime and pine but itís all very restrained. Little bitterness. OK flavourwise, just needs less timid use of the hops. Champion beer of Britain? I really donít think so.

Philym (1004) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2013
Appearance: Clear amber with thin white head. Aroma: Citrus fruit, biscuit, slight skunk, slightly earthy/grassy/hay note. Taste: Low sweetness, medium bitterness and sourness. Palate: Smooth thick texture, light body, low carbonation, abrupt astringent grapefruit like bitterness and slightly sour finish. The bitterness increases in the finish. Comments: Enjoyable but quite bitter. Left a glass lace.

Rob_D_UK (806) - Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Itís hazy, warm golden with a white, creamy head and the aroma has notes of malt, fruit and hops. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of malt, fruit, citrus and the slightly dry finish has a light bitterness.

Osprey87 (1821) - WALES - MAR 16, 2013
Sep 2012 - sweet and mild to start, a bit of bitterness to end. Very drinkable. Good for a bottled British bitter, would be v interested to have on cask.

foxo82 (704) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle from the Co-Op, Syston. Pours a dirty amber with a grassy, musty malt aroma. Dry and metallic bitterness dominates the taste. Iím a big fan of the more drinkable cask version - which is half a percent lighter and less spiky to taste.
