Clear reddish mahogany color with a nice off-white head. Aroma earthy, flowery, and caramel with a note of roast. Very "English" (duh). Taste bitter at first, notes of caramel and chocolate, then some wood. Nice full finish.

elosop (140) - SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2014
Mörkröd med hygglig skumkrona. Lite metallisk arom? Mest beska i smaken. Ingen lång eftersmak. En hygglig brittisk bitter, men ingen favorit.

NordicV (1095) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2014
Brun öl med beige skum. Doft av malt, mörkt bröd, kola och torkad frukt. Bra bra balans mellan sötma och en nötig beska.

kustie (99) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Ei erityisen voimakas tuoksu. Kuparinvärinen kirkas olut. Samettinen vaahto. Aavistuksen hapan, melko mieto maku. Hieman lakritsainen jälkimaku. Suutuntuma puolitäyteläinen. Ei erityisen monipuolinen, mutta ihan tasapainoinen olut.

Andy_ (636) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2013
Copper orange beer with a dense beige head leaving finally only a ring on top of the beer. Aroma has dry wood and nuts as well as sweet toffee. Taste is berry marmaladeish sweet with bitterness and dry woodness. Also a hint of alcohol. Finish is dry and medium long. Mouthfeel is medium full with medium strong carbonation. A quite basic Engish beer. Nothing really wrong with it but this is not just my style of beer.

MarcoDL (2040) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2013
Typical British beer, bit malty and a bit bitter. Also a bit flat though, like it stood too long in the English rain.

Idiosynkrasie (3620) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear, deep reddish, dark copper colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Sweetish malty aroma, notes of toffee, cautious hoppy overtones. Taste is minimally sweet malty, cautious hints of toffee, dry and bitter hoppy overtones.

bjakk (293) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - DEC 23, 2013
Reddish golden, with nice white foam. Mild orange aroma. Orange peel, malt, with a bitter mildly burned aftertaste that grows. High in carbon.
