jaghana (5253) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle 50cl, a clear pale amber beer with good head, retention and lacing. Nose is very fruity on resin, grapefruit, orange and grass. Aroma is very sweet on caramel and orange notes with intense bitterness, this strong bitterness has a very long duration. Nothing exceptional for 9€ the bottle.

BuckeyeBoy (4998) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 28, 2016
500ml bottle picked up at tres bonne. pours out a crisp copper golden topped with a sand head. Nose is old cardboard hops all the way gone at this point some sweet malts. Taste is more of the old dead hops and sweetness a little touch of bitterness on the end. My first beer from Wales to bad it was so old. I am sure it would be much better fresh.

erickok (4936) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2015
Loads of modern hops, citrus, pine, grapefruit and quite grapes, mixed with a very English (not quite clean but dry) yeast. Very dry bitter body, string astringent ending. But drinkable and very much so for 7.6%! Not very balanced but I really like it. (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

mkel07 (4836) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2012
500ml bottle. There is a mixture of malt and melon fruit on the aroma which is pleasant enough. Beer looks strong in the glass with a deep amber colour and a sturdy cap of foam. Sits in the mouth well and finishes with a bit of a metallic edge on the palate.

Beersiveknown (4820) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle at home from ales by mail
slightly hazy amber with pillowy beige head. Pithy mandarins and Dusty hopsacks, fruity. Sprightly carbonation, pithy, slightly chalky pithy bitterness. Dry finish. Quite austere and tonnes of pith...would make a good aperitif
