500ml bottle. Thin white head, nice little bit lacing. Clear reddish amber body. Not much nose, a little biscuit, slightly metallic. Flavour is straw, a little spice, gentle bitter finish. Sweet overtones, some honey and caramel. High carbonation, finish is dry. Would be great on cask.

Bottle. Caramel, pine hops and a metallic copper flavour. A pretty decent bitter, would probably be decent on cask.

thmsboyd (166) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle BBE: Mar ’16. Well-chilled. Pours a clear amber body, with small-medium, loose off-white head. Sweet, biscuity malt nose, very much akin to an English Bitter. Some grassy hop aromas, but fairly low intensity. A medium, honeyed sweetness and a light bitterness develop. The ale is light-bodied, with a thin, slightly foamy texture. Carbonation is medium-high and the finish gently sweet and fruity, but fairly short. Very much a traditional, English style pale ale. Well-made, with no off-flavours, but fairly bland and lacking anything noteworthy.

GlasgowTAD (839) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JUN 30, 2015
Pours amber gold with a bubbly, light brown head which recedes to a bubbly layer. Aroma is caramel, piney bitterness, crisp pilsner aroma - mainly malty. Taste is caramel, medium hop bitterness and some biscuit.

kajser27 (634) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 28, 2015
Clear copper colored, medium strong white head with good lacing. Aroma is malt, cardboard and some cooked veggies. Taste is low to moderate sweet malt, some biscuit, again cardboard, some lemon-grassy notes, and cooked veggies to top it off, low bitterness. Low+ bodied, moderate carbonation. Not very good, maybe a defunct bottle...
