jmgreenuk (7475) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 4, 2013
Cask at the Birmingham Beer Festival 2013. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is weak stale malt with a hint of creamy caramel. The flavour is weak bitter with a light bodied watery palate and not much else. I feel that this beer has the potential to be so much more but didnít quite make it.

jamesie1857 (1944) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2013
500ml bottle from Beer Hawk - Hazy yellow body, pillowy white head. Nose is a mix of citrus and pepper, with a nice spicy first hit in the taste. A bit more body in this and it would be great.

thellgren (789) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2013
0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Very light colour but with a big head. This is not a dead beer but a living thing so be prepared when you open the bottle. Donít shake it. Taste is very light but malty. Nice one.
