BlackHaddock (3485) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
500ml Bottle: unknown BBD, poured at home on 19th June 2014 into an Abbot Ale glass tankard. Slight haze to the light golden body, full white head and carbonation bubbles rising from the off. Mild hop nose, otherwise odourless. Dry, hoppy, bitter and refreshing. Pleased to say there was no citrus flavours, aromas or feel within this beer.

Slightly hazy gold amber beer. Semi dry palate. Light malt, a little creamy. Light fruitisness - subtle orange and peach with a mild tea! Dry finish. Passable.

McNeillR (1088) - SCOTLAND - JAN 18, 2012
Clear and ragged lemony nose, solid dark yellow clarity with no distinctive head once settles. Hurried initial taste with an even spread afterward, continuing the citrus fully with lingering zest. A refreshing effort that doesnt need to be rushed.

maeib (8576) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2012 Bottled. A golden beer with an off-white head and lacing. The aroma is sharply hoppy with grassy notes and that tell tale paper. Bitter in the mouth. Obvious pasteurisation again. A beer of ins and outs. Score 2.8
Subsequent rating scored 3.1. Average becomes 2.9

tommann (2604) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a light amber with a nice large white head. Not much on the nose, some faint malt and a hint of hops. Sweet and grassy, with hoppy, strong bitter finish. Enough body for the strength and a good amount of carbonation.
