Hazy light amber color. Light malt aroma, light hop. The mouthfeel is a bit dry, with some toffee flavor and a quite good hopping. Pleasant.

Hazy amber color. Aroma of beans, malt, hop. Some malt aroma, breakfast cereals and bra; something’s wrong. Quite strong bitterness.

Leighton (17767) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
Keg at the Drury Hotel - St. Louis. Pours clear gold with a creamy topping. The nose has bready malts, mild ripening citrus. Light-medium sweet flavour with some leafy hops, mild piney bitterness, lightly toasted bread. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet and bready on the finish, with faint metallic bite, some grain, hints of honey, caramel. So so overall.

harrisoni (16837) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2006
Bottle from Utobeer. Copper red colour with beige head and yeasty hop aroma. Quite good minerally malt, some caramel. Hoppy grapefruit/tangerine finish. They’ve more or less done what they wanted, an English bitter (bit of boiled sweet) with green US hops

yngwie (16377) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 24, 2009
UPDATED: APR 26, 2011 Bottle, 12oz. A slightly hazy, golden body with an orange tint. Finger-thick, diminishing, off-white head. Fruity, slightly citrusy, bready nose in the English way. Quite sweet flavor with bread crusts and citrus. A bit low on bitterness. Medium body, and a pleasant level of carbonation. Bready, citrusy finish with some bitterness. A pleasant beer, well suited for a drinking session. Rating: 6-3-6-3-13-3.1. 090412

Bottle. It pours a clear, at least almost clear, pale amber body and a small off-white head. Some lacings occur. The aroma has pale malts and canned tropical fruits, rather sugar-ish. The flavor confirms that impression, it’s rather sugary sweet, with lots of peaches and a nice backbone of bready malts. Medium body, smooth. Some metallic notes in the else quite balanced finish. Overall, a beer probably more suited for autumnal drinking than for the hot spring days we have here right now. 110426

Koelschtrinker (16252) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 17, 2011
Süß-würziger, vor allem aber lecker hopfiger Geruch. Herber Antrunk, ein grasiger Ton ist ebenfalls vorhanden. Im Mittelteil ist das Bier etwas wässrig, der würzige Teil entschädigt dafür. Dabei kommt ein malziges Aroma nur kurz zum Tragen, auch im Nachgeschmack spielt es nur eine kleine Rolle, denn hier wird die Würzigkeit verstärkt, am Ende bleibt ein bitteres Aroma hängen. Insgesamt zu mild. Test vom 18.3.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,8,9,8,9,8 - 8,10

TBone (15699) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2006
Bottled. Deep honey golden, small white head. Bready malty aroma. Bready, hoppy, lingering aftertaste. Very standard APA - balanced and drinkable one anyhow.
