Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a white head. Hoppy aroma and a hoppy light roasted taste. Medium body and a hoppy dry finish.

chinchill (2430) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2015
From a cask at the 2015 Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting. Pours hazy yellow amber with a durable but very bubbly head. Strange spicy biscuit aroma. The flavor is more as expected with a dominant light toasted grain component and light spicing. The ’spice’ [yeast] is still strange but works well. Fine soft feel with a medium body.

mzaar (1825) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2015
Flaska 50 cl (ingår i Best of Midlands Winter edition). Klar ljus bärnstensfärgad med ett medelstort vitt skum, som varar länge. Doftar av örter, citrus och tallbarr. Smakinslag av örter, grapefrukt, apelsin och karamell. Avslutas med en fin beska. Mjuk munkänsla.

spacecube (1082) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2015
500ml bottle, pours golden brown with a small white head, almost clear. Nice light dry malt character, grainy biscuit, hints of caramel. Mild floral hop with light citrus notes. Balanced finish with light bitterness. Light body, thin texture with soft carbonation. Nice balanced traditional bitter.

BeerandBlues2 (10331) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Tap at Max’s. Pours brilliantly clear copper with a large, frothy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is toast malt, ah yes, Maris Otter, light earthy hops. Flavor is sweet malt, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and carbonation.

olsvammel (3668) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Very light smell, some flowers and light malts. Allot more flavour in the taste with a nice bready malty backbone and some flowers. Feels like a real ale on bottle.

VictorStr (1500) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2014
Inte den arom eller smakrikaste ölen men knte meningen heller. Bra balans mellan sötma och syrlighet och beska. Fyllig kropp för 4.2

unclemattie (4301) - Georgia, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Tall 500ml bottle. Best Before 30Aug15. Very natural looking ale. Pale, light amber color. Thick foam. Pine aroma, hints of citrus. Nose is heavy on the hops. Crisp, pale grains, zesty bite, loads of caramel. Finishes with a zesty tingle, notes of pine straw, a hint of toasted grains. It is a fantastic, hearty English Bitter. (4221)

Grzesiek79 (3342) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 20, 2014
Dobry Bitter z niewielka piana jak to w brytyjskich bitterach. Kolor jasno bursztynowy, i metny lekko. Troche drozdzy bylo na dnie. Dodaly posmaku wytrawnego piwu. Gozkawe dosc solidnie. Zwlaszcza koncowka jest zdecydowanie gozka.

Golden in colour. Little carbonarion with thick white head. Fruity and fainty nutty in aroma. Citrus, walnut, bitter when tasting. Okay beer.
