500ml bottle. Purchased from Whistle stop at London Waterloo. Fantastic compared to the Russian crap i was drinking yesterday. Anyway, colour is very slightly clouded orange. Aroma is strongly hoppy and just like a good english ale. Taste is extremely hoppy and a nice strong after taste.

Copper colour. Its a fairly unoffensive but plain bitter. Nice balance of malt and hops but a bit lacking in flavour and rather thin and watery.

Bottle. Pours a very light brown colour with a thin white head, real fruity aroma, the taste is sweet malty with a dry finish.
