hawthorne00 (3372) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2016
330ml brown bottle. Amber with a beige head that’s soon a coat. Aroma of toffee, spices, dried fruit. Remarkably it even smells a bit boozy. Decent if lifeless body, moderate carbonation. Tastes as it smells - sweet caramel malt, some dried fruit, light spices accompany moderate bitterness. Dull but in OK balance. Is this supposed to be "if you like London pride, you’ll like this?" Because nah.

Bottle from Queens Plaza Beer & Wine 180216. Pours a dark honey colour with a modest head. Fruit and malt in the aroma wth a bit of toffee thrown in for good measure. In the mouth the beer is full flavoured with sweet bready malt finish.

ALLOVATE (2842) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2016
A new import to Oz from the giant Greene King. Into a half pint nonic at just just on cool. Quite charged, it lifts a good two inches of rocky white foam. Holds well atop a bright, golden chestnut body. English nose; floral, grassy and lightly earthy with a touch of roasted peanuts and fresh baked, white bread. A little lean on the palate. Not watery but borderline. Soft in feel with a smooth finish. Toasted, grainy malt, slightly powdery in feel. Peppery and floral in back with a touch of burnt sugar aiding the hops to give it a medial bitterness. It is weak in flavour but what is here is highly sessionable. Clean cut English Bitter. (33cL, BBE 10/16, BIDBeer)

johndoughty (4807) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle( Clear ). Bitterness dominates and there are few other flavours floating around. Pretty boring even by G-K standards.

allmyvinyl (9052) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2014
500ml clear glass bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear amber with thin white head. Aromas of metal, cereal, butterscotch. Taste is more of the same, and not great. Sweet finish. Not good.
