BitchPls (537) - FINLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Clear, red and brown beer with a beige head. Malt and pilsner like hoppy aroma. Caramel, cooked vegetables, a hint of metal and some bitterness. Light to medium body. Not good, not bad.

Fruity malt profile. Clear amber with long lasting medium head. Sweet malt, fruity and some refreshing light bitterness. Medium body, sticky texture & lively carbonation.

Clear copper body, white head. Aroma has nuts, malts, fruity and piney hops. Flavour is quite same. Nice example of quite normal bitter.

jmgreenuk (4109) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2013
500ml Bottle. Poured a crystal clear dark amber with a frothy very light tan head. The aroma is malt yeast hop with a little fruit. The flavour is medium bitter with a fruity bitter hop palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nothing special. An average English bitter with a touch of fruit.

holdleder (167) - Kongerslev, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2013
50 cl. flaske. 4,2 % . Ikke megen Rocking Rudolph over denne øl. Meget svag lysebrunt farve. Smagen behager ikke

SilkTork (5179) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
500ml clear glass bottle. Filtered. Dark amber malty beer. Quite clean, but tasty and pleasant. Mild caramel notes. I do like a malty brew, and this is well done, even with the lowered abv from the original, and the filtering. Drinkable.

zacgillbanks (2160) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle from Tesco, Gateshead. This is a dark red brown beer with almond and burnt toffee flavours, red fruity notes and a sweet and roasted finish.

SperkeleForce (516) - FINLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle 50 cl. Pours copper amber with small white lacing head. Malty, nuts, caramel, pines, bread. Kind of bit weird harsh lame taste in this, slight bitter finish. Mellows down abit after awhile.

BlackHaddock (3514) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2013
Clear 500ml bottle claiming to be a Hardy & Hansons beer brewed in Bury St Edmunds by Greene King: poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard at home on 17th Dec 2013. Taken with a meat platter of Wiltshire Ham, German Peppered salami and a Pork Pie! Good looking beer, huge head of lightly tanned foam on top of a clear mid-mahogany body. Malty feel to the aroma with a toffee apple hint. The taste is also malt led, with a fruity trace. There is a mild Christmassy spiciness but not enough to get excited about. Originally a 5.0% ABV beer I believe, it needs that extra alcohol and the oomph it would give to this OK brew. This is just better than average for a mass produced UK Winter brew, but it could be so much better if they’d kept too the higher alcohol level IMHO.

leaparsons (7991) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle. Ruby red brown with a thin foam. Aromas are woody and nutty with toffee and hints of red berries. Earthy with some plastic. Flavours are raisins and red berries with bitter lemon and herbal notes. Woody with toffee and spices. Carbonated with a dry finish. Pretty average.
