COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
A traditional British Bitter, Pathfinder is medium brown in colour with a good hoppiness and flavour.
During World War II a Mosquito aircraft crashed into the fields at Glebe Farm whilst attempting to land at RAF Wyton. We still uncover wreckage from this aircraft today. This ale is in remembrance to the heroes of the Pathfinder Force who lost their lives.
This beer is to be enjoyed by everyone and has been brewed gluten free for coeliacs to enjoy too.

"Night Mission" bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A golden beer with a malty and fruity flavour, cereal and slight floral citrus notes with a dry toffee finish.

sic1314 (3199) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2013
Poured clear golden with a diminishing frothy white head. Aroma is an initial hop burst and soft sweet caramel malt. Medium smooth body, flavour of light honey sweetness and some malt. Easy to drink if innocuous.

Piwo tresciwe w smaku. Ekologiczne. Swieze w odbiorze. Aromat za to znikomy. Piana srednia i takze utrzymuje sie nie za dlugo i nie za krotko. Jasno bursztynowa barwa.

jamesie1857 (1370) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2013
330ml bottle - Pale yellow / golden body, quickly fading white head, nice and clear. Nose is primarily hops, the grain comes through too, roasted and sugary at the same time. It has a very watery mouthfeel, with the taste only really kicking in on the way out, which turns out to contribute to a decent lasting finish. I can see why people have not raved about this, but Iíve had worse... much worse.

Leighton (10694) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear cold with a wimpy, white foam head that quickly folds into a film. Nose holds sugary, grainy malts, some berry fruits. Flavor is not as bad as I would have thought, though certainly not great. Light to medium sweet with dry and grainy malts, hints of caramel, mild leaves and dirt. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly crisp to finish, further dry and grainy malts, light toasty leaves, fine dirt bitterness. Itís actually a pretty alright beer overall.

SilkTork (5188) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2012
330ml brown glass bottle from Dobbies. Ancient gold colour. Dry, tinny malt with a robust sprinkling of bittering hops. Thereís a dull, stale quality about the whole thing. Little aroma. Itís a beer, and itís drinkable, and I wouldnít have known it was gluten free (presumably made without barley - though the ingredients are not listed anywhere). For most people (like me) who are gluten intolerant, then lager is acceptable, but for coeliacs who really cannot tolerate even a small amount of gluten, this is a decent beer.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 17, 2012
In bottle. Pours a yellow colour with a fair white head. Aroma of spelt and yeast. A similar spelt flavour with a little lemon also. Mild carbonation and a dry finish.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Benjii and Sev. Pale orangey amber with a thin white head. that fades to almost nothing. Pretty indiscriminate nose, lager grains, honey notes, very slight hint of lemony hops. Slightly lemony palate, dry and peppery, slightly metallic and watery with a thin bitter finish. Pretty bad.
