Clear, copper colored, almost no off white head. Aroma is of malt and biscuit, some caramel, bit grassy. Taste is medium sweet malt and biscuit, some caramel, light dried fruit and bit grassy and lemony notes, dryish, light bitterness. Medium to light bodied, soft carbonation.

Marko (4798) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle from Haratís stand at the Opatovina Beer Fest, kindly shared with me by ogivlado, Domagoj V. &... G. Old gold body with a small white head. Dried fruit and caramel in the aroma, generic but not bad. The taste is the same but empty, vague peach only. Just OK, not terrible but without any real niche, use and anything but glorious.

uckelman (577) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2016
Pours clear, amber. A small amount of tan head. Aroma is mostly malt and a bit of spice. Smells like autumn, somehow. Medium body. Mostly fizz on the finish, and then sticky. Claims to be "fruity", which I donít taste. Medium sweet.

330ml brown bottle. Amber with a beige head thatís 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, youíll like this?" Because nah.

mkel07 (4983) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2016
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 (2859) - 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)

Bottle. Clear amber in colour with small white head. Aroma and taste mainly caramel, malt, earthy hops and fruity esters. Light bitterness, low body. Ok.
