AtronSeige (1235) - Johannesburg, - NOV 13, 2012
Clear copper pour with a light-brown head that disappears quickly. An aroma of hay and caramel. Medium bitterness with a bit of sweetness. Medium bodied, thin slightly slick texture with a soft carbonation what is fizzy on the tongue. Long finish with a good bitterness. A lovely ale.

FatPhil (13653) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 28, 2016
500ml bottle (Sip, Tallinn)
Clear amber, tight head. Sweet milky black teabag tea aroma, a bit fruity. Sweet fruity taste, toffee-ish malts, some toastiness. Medium palate, a little bit smooth from sweetness, but pleasantly carbonated too. Milky black tea comes back in the finish, and a delicate resiny hoppiness - nice. Lovely malty English ale. So simple, but so delicious.

nybol (1380) - DENMARK - APR 24, 2016
Meget maltet (krystal malt), og fyldig krop. Let humlet. Den har en rigtig god fylde og smag der gør den til god øl til en stærk kødret som jeg fik denne til.

Typical bitter in appearance. Healthy white head. Tasty sweetish malts with hints of nut flavours. Long dry finish with really good, fruity hop flavours. A first-class bitter, with high drinkability.

DavidAust (191) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2015
Just like the label says. Fruity and full bodied. Nice malt and sweetness, and well balanced so not overly strong on any one point. Drink at the right temperature to gain as much flavour as possible. Good drop especially easy to drink.
