3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dutch ratebeer meeting. Hazy yellow/orange coloured, small head. Unusual aroma, complex and fruity. Initially sour flavour, then goes on to be more sweet. Obvious complexity. Lasting finish. An unusual combination of flavours, but pretty good.

(Dutch ratebeer meeting)Strange, when I see the ratings. This beer is very underrated. This is the second english beer I really liked after the fullers Vintage. Sweet grapefruit aroma. Hazy, yellow/amber coloured with a thin white head. Taste is bitter, slightly sour and fruity. Bit thin palate. Very decent brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A pleasing & pleasant bitter that makes one long for the dank, musty darkness of an English Pub. Pours a radiant copper-gold with a slight-white lacy head. Tastes initially of sweet malts that are quickly overrun by strong, oatmealy hops. Grainy. Hops throughout. Not as "bitter" as one might hope!
