maekchu (1762) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle from Seijo Ishi store in Kuzuha Mall. Grainy, rich caramel nose, with fruit blossoms. Copperish amber color. Solid well-balanced initial, got the real Burton-onTrent thing going on, with strong malty overtones throughout. Thin-medium body. Very tasty initial flavors, smooth and balanced overall. Flavors flatten out quickly in finish.

JonMoore (1806) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle - slightly hazy reddish amber colour with slim white head. Balanced aroma of ligh hops and malts. Interesting flavour, malts dominate but don’t have all their way, nice hoppy notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Nice, drinkable pale ale.

Brentv (232) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 23, 2014
From bottle in Tokyo, pours a clear dark amber with a very slight yellowish head. Aroma is fruits and caramel. Taste is fruits, caramel, mildly bitter, and dry. Finish is dry. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. A solid beer; not a standout, but well worth drinking and enjoyable.

wyzzywyz22 (1885) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle. Hazy orange pour with a small white head. Earthy hop, straw and spice in the nose. Malt driven flavour with a slight metallic tang which lets it it down. Dried out towards the finish. A bit ho hum.. Loving the Owl though....

Firefly54 (222) - - JAN 29, 2014
Clear amber red colour, fluffy white head. Aroma - nice balance of english hops and the just right amount of crystal malt. A litlle berry fruits. Taste - Soft citrus notes and subtle toffee flavor in equal measure. Great balance to this beer. Could enjoy a couple of these.

Aroma of earthy hops. Slight pine & citrus. Taste of caramel malts and earthy English hops. No noticeable yeast character.

JohnCook101 (248) - - DEC 13, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours cloudy copper with little to no head. Nice fruity aroma. Flavours are similarly fruity, quite sweet with a good malt backbone. Falls a little flat at the back, could do with a more robust finish, a bit more bitterness. The hops seem a little hidden, but still a very nice beer.
