FatPhil (14127) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 21, 2015
Cask (Murderer’s, Norwich) (6+:4:6+:4:13=3.3++)
Darkish orange, small loose head. Has a nice orangey aroma to match its colour, a bit marmaladey with the sweetness of the caramel from the malts. Soft palate, carbonation low. Malty, gently fruity taste. Pleasant finish with gentle bitterness. Quite a nice bitter, and slips down easily.

theprof (527) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2015
Fruity aroma. Brown body thin top but steady lacing. I like more malt myself and this has malt foregrounded but with hops lingering on the palate for the "balanced" effect. A session bitter in my view which makes me wonder at past days when a session was 5 or more. But that’s age for you - the folly of youth or frailty of age who knows?

adamnowek (1882) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2015
Pours just like an iced tea from a bottle. Smell is grainy turpentine. Taste is a very subtle caramel with a lightly bitter finish at the end.
