SilkTork (5253) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
@ The Flower Pot, Maidstone during the summer of 2012. O yes. Juicy citric hops in a pale biscuit malt. A winner. The beer lacks character, but is damn tasty.

erickok (3751) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 16, 2013
Clean amber glowing body with frothy white head. Forest and pine hops, bit of Grapefruit, but all within safe limits. Biscuit y base, pretty nice. Taste is more expressive though, with string bitterness and a light cookie base malt. Bit thin, but drinks well. Modern interpretation of a classic bitter. Great execution. Good palate cleanser, I reckon, too. (Half pint at The Sussex Arms)

planky84 (2143) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Keg at the Hare and Billet, Blackheath. Cloudy amber pour with a white head. Citrus and pear aroma. Quite a fruity nose. Herby, citrus flavour. Quite a pronounced hop bite. Hop laden finish. Good.

BeerHitz (10) - - AUG 20, 2013
An OK pale. The hops were slightly dull and astringent and there was a soapy sulphurous taste in the background. Perhaps it hadn’t been kept well.
