This impressive ale has a bright amber colour and a smooth initial flavour, with subtle hints of honey and a long, dry aftertaste which lingers on the palate long after the last mouthful. Hops used: First Gold, Goldings, WGV

Clear amber appearance, medium head. Fruity aroma, semi dry taste, toasted nutty notes. Not too long aftertaste. Below average for a Premium Bitter style.

Oakes (15292) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Earthy sweet caramel, crunchy malt, touch of yeasty apple/pear character. Good basic bitter, though billed as Irish Red.

On tap @ the Haymarket. This is somewhere between an Irish Red Ale and an English Bitter. Fruity and malty notes dominate the nose and the palate. There is reasonable balance even if there is some malt astringency on the finish. It looks attractive!

It was a hot night in Belfast and this was a great pint at The Crown. Aroma fruity, taste of sweet citrus tangerine and honey, followed by a long refreshing bitter palate. Lovely.

larsga (7219) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
Small offwhite creamy head doesn’t last. Hazy amber body. Light fruity dusty aroma, very faint. Sweet smoky earthy musty taste with dusty fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, flat mouthfeel. Dryish dusty smoky toffee aftertaste with banana notes. It’s surprisingly smoky and sweet, but quite nice, all the same. (0.284l cask, at The Old Swan Inn, York.)

foxo82 (843) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2013
Cask at The Old Contemptibles, Birmingham. Dirty cloudy amber ale with a citrus aroma and citrus ginger taste. And another country ticked off.

McNeillR (2168) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2013
Stagnant Amber, whisper of white head. Burnt sweets nose. Unassuming initial taste, smooth and underpowered bitter. Finish tasted like the glass had been used for an ashtray before dispense. Pretty poor.

Cask, Haymarket Bar, Edinburgh

gunnar (7670) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2013
Cask at Haymarket Bar, Edinburgh. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is mild toasty malts. Taste is smooth, moderate sweet with some herbal and honeyish notes, dry lingering end with minty and spicy hops.
