Great British ale. Nice look and fine aroma. Take it. It’s worth your glas.

A smooth and enjoyable beer that is very easy to drink but could benefit from a longer lasting palate.

Dobre organiczne piwo z Anglii. Ladna elegandzka i powsciagliwa etykieta robia wrazenia. Skladniki ekologiczne sa bardzo swieze i pachnace. W smaku piwo jest goryczkowe, taki lepszy bitter, o jasno miedzianym kolorze.

dogbomb (967) - ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle. Red and rust with a quickly thinned light tan head. Nose is date and banana with a little grape. Smooth and light in the mouth, with a little plum flavour, which opens out in the finish to an astringent alcoholic fruit punch of date, plum, banana and cough syrup. It’s ok, but the main mouthfeel and taste could be a lot more rewarding.

Damn weird, might be spoiled. Murky red-orange colour and a beige foam. Like old ale

Vladivostok (271) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2013
The wife ordered this one with the groceries. Needs slopping from glass to glass - way too fizzy if you can’t be bothered. No appreciable aroma, sweet and rather thin. Not in the least ruby coloured, actually being just on the pale side for a bitter ale. Finish is short and only slightly bitter and all in all, a very disappointing beer.

downender (6523) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2013
Deep amber with a decent, off-white head. Sweet, bready malts and caramel, with some slightly yeasty berry fruits and moderately bitter finish. Ok.
