Thechasm442 (357) - Wilmington, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle to a pint glass. The beer pours a super clear light orange with a white head that disappears almost right away leaving no lacing. Aroma is lots of sour bread, grassy hops, and just a general bread, dough, yeast kinda thing. The smells are all subdued though. Taste is caramel, toffee, bread, and some juicy citrus flavors near the end. The flavors linger around in your mouth for a little bit, and it is pretty quenching. Not a bad bitter, but not the best by any means.

Bottled on 10.07.13. Poured into a tumbler on 12.30.13. A: See through red/amber. Looks very carbonated. S: Pine, citrus. Smells like an APA. T: Pine, malty. M: Crisp. Lots of carbonation. Maybe too much. O: This didnít seem complex. It was easy to drink, but boring.

niquillis (1290) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle from Beer Dock, Crewe. Pours amber with an off white froth. Supposedly an English style bitter. Far too hoppy and spicy for that. More like an Irish red IMO. Fruity hops, dark spice, nice drink.

Renobob (1001) - BesanÁon, FRANCE - JAN 6, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 355ml. Style bitter anglaise. Peu de corps, peu de bulle. Malt et amertume bien équilibré. Bien faite dans le genre.

Pale brown colour. Aroma and flavour are malty and have a fruity sweetness. Good but just a bit too sweet overall.

Ibrew2or3 (7158) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 31, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a clear amber body that supports a thin off white head. The aroma offers up malty notes, some almost winter like spices, a touch of biscuit malts and then sugary sweetness. The taste starts with malts, a nuttiness, a bit of biscuit and thin malt roastiness. Towards the finish caramel malts move forward and further sweeten up the deal. Not bad but not really something to seek out.

Listigovers (382) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Aroma of fresh hop resin. Copper and clear with a lasting white head. Light to medium bodied and refreshing with some light berry like sweetness, this slight sweetness is balanced with a crisp finish with slight bitterness. Pretty nice, very easy to drink.

patxa (199) - MEXICO - DEC 29, 2014
Pour from bottle. Citrusy aroma with a hint of hops. Brief white head with almost no lace, light brown to pale looks. Hoppy, grassy notes with a sweet, abrupt palate. Very drinkable nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent, but somewhat bland. Nice malts and not too bitter, which was nice.
