Grzesiek79 (3257) - 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.

Well balanced by a crisp finish.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle. Bready aroma with hints of grassy hops. Pours golden blond. Tastes earthy with hints of sweet malt and stale bread with tired hops lingering. Bottle says it’s good for another 3 months but tastes pretty tired to me. I’d like to try it again.

GTAEgeek (1238) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Cask sampled at ACAT, 2014. Pours hazy yellow, with a small, bubbly, white head. Aromas of bread yeast, caramel, grapefruit, and tangerines. Low bitterness, mellow sweetness, and significant yeast flavors. Light body, smooth, low carbonation. This is a delicious, easy-drinking beer. Nothing special, but just well-made, quaffable, and simple. I could drink several pints of this.
