Dec 2012 - Interesting first impression, wasnít expecting that. A medicinal lemony foretaste leads to a moderate level of bitterness. By no means run of the mill - the flavour is very individual. Interesting, but not my cup of tea.

Bottle. Pours amber brown with off white head. Nose and taste of dried fruit, dried biscuit malt, toffee, bitter hops and caramel bread. Dry slightly bitter finish. Medium body.

Aroma was lackluster. Toasty Malts in this brown ale. Hints of grassy earthyness and a bit of smoke. nice lacing. long finish of hops on the pallate. Worth trying.

AirForceHops (3225) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Paid $5.00 for a 500ml bottle @ The Beer Store, Nashua. Amber color in an Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Nose is an English caramel malt. Flavor is weak malt notes, bittering hops that I canít really pint point any type of variety. Body is light with texture being on the watery side. This would be a nice drink on cask at a pub. But the bottle is lacking any real flavor or depth. I guess thatís why I donít drink many Bitterís. Could be a good session brew in the right circumstance.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - FEB 15, 2013
Oooooohhh. That is a surprising drink. It has a very smokey rye cereal flavour at first. This moves into a well balanced medium bodied malt bitterness. Finishes toasted shortbread.

Ratman197 (9874) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2013
500 ml bottle poured a clear amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of carmel, eartiness and light fruittiness. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of earthiness, light carmel and light woodiness with a smooth lingering earthy finish.

Essex (51) - Cardiff, WALES - JAN 5, 2013
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass. Pours a light brown colour with a small head that fades leaving a small layer, and very nice lacing down the inside too. Smells faintly of sweet malts. Tastes of sickly sweet malts, followed by a light hop bitterness that lingers for quite a while. Not bad at all. Overall a decent session beer.

[4926-20121107] 500mL bottle. Light apple grains aroma. Clear, brown orange body with a quick foamy white head. Old grainy apple skins flavour. Medium body has a strange bitter floral aftertaste. Not a fan at first. (6/3/5/3/11) 2.8

Boutip (4738) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear light brown color ale with a small bubbly head with average retention and no lacing. Aroma of unrefined grainy notes with light dry bitter hops profile. Taste is also dominated by slightly weird unrefined grainy notes with a dry aftertaste. Body is light with medium to low carbonation. I must say that I really didnít dig the malt profile on this one.

jercraigs (7894) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
2012-11-07. Lightly hazy dark copper amber, nice beige head and lace. 3+ Aroma is malty, with an English quality to it, mild toasty not quite biscuity character, lightly earthy. Flavour is similar, lightly earthy English malt, modest toasty biscuity quality to the malt. Modest bitterness throughout. Average plus palate has modest carbonation, suits it. Pretty enjoyable. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto
