A good robust bitter. Some crystal malt gives a slight golden colour while a dry rich hoppy bitterness makes for a refreshing experience.

Bottle, 4.5%. Refreshing hop aroma, nice and grassy. Hazy yellow colour. Small white head. The flavour is nicely hoppy like the aroma. Grassy and refreshing. Good flavour, also considering the ABV.

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle conditioned. Light gold colour with large white head that lasted throughout. Nice Citrus (grapefruit) and malt aroma with a hint of flowers. Good balance of malt and hop in the taste with the hoppiness just winning out. Good long, dry finish. An excellent all-rounder.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2008
Bottle. Something wrong with this one. Tastes and smells strange. Still decent though, will buy another because the place where I get from is reputable. Nicely floral and slightly bitter finish. Nice, just need to try again.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2008
A Mes rate: bottle from the Bottle Stop.
Pale yellow gold, huge white head settled quickly to a lasting quater inch of white foam. Lovely floral stuff, superbly dry, excellent bitterness in the finish. Could be utterly superb but this bottle has a very slight infection. Not enough to really spoil it but it’s clearly being held back. Need to try this again.

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 14, 2008
courtesy of Toni Flükiger - hazy golden-orange colour, little firm and persistent pale beige foam; fairly hoppy flowery nose, creamy mouthfeel, medium-bodied and with a light astringence; a pronounced bitterness introduces a dry fruity and bitter, long hoppy finish
