Pours a golden copper colour with a white head. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts and grassy hops. Flavour of strong grassy hops, toasted malts, dried fruits and some floral notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Good.

Great for an open fire on a cold winters night. Not overly hopped and is better served slightly warm. A great ale! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2010 Cask (gravity dispense) at GBBF, August 2006. Day 1, beer #26. Amber colour. Very light aroma. Decent chalky, slightly resinous hops on the palate. Some tropical fruit in there. Limited malt presence. Smooth mouthfeel. A pleasant, easy-drinking beer, if a touch short of impact. {6/3/7/4/13 = 3.3).
RE-RATE. 50cl bottle, not sure where from, best before, 9 October 2009, consumed January 2010. Amber colour. Excellent condition. Persistent off-white head. Firm citrus and spicy hop aroma. Slightly fruity aroma with some biscuity malt and dryish, slightly bitter finish. Light, fresh mouthfeel. Decent stuff. No problems with the overage. {7/4/6/3/13 = 3.3}

larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2006
Medium, offwhite head with large bubbles. Big aroma of pine and old lemons, with overtones of spice and cedar. Bitter, sourish, watery taste of lemon. Disappointing taste, but not at all bad.

blankboy (7216) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2011
Cask at Louis Armstrong, Dover. Pours a clear golden-orange with a spare lasting frothy white head and good lacing on the glass. Aroma is interesting, itís sweet and hoppy, with what smells like Fuggles along with some toffee. Flavour is Fuggles first (not sure if thatís the hops they actually use but thatís what it reminds me of) followed by lightly toasted malt, some toffee and an average bitter finish. Average bodied. Not great, just pretty good.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2006
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from Shamansburys. Not what I would usually expect from an IPA. Hoppy nose with some malted toffee. Cloudy amber appearance with some sediment floaters. More malt in the flavour backed up by the dry sharp hops. Brief and odd salt and pepper finish. Not bad

Cunningham (6976) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2013

Appearance: Cloudy cognac color with a fine white head that leaves an ok lacing.
Aroma: Malty and hoppy.
Palate: Medium body. Tad sweet and an ok bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Solid malty and balanced hoppy backbone.
Overall impression: Nice tasty bitter. I tend to like British bitter when they have a fine carbonation.
Personal stats: Bottle Dag had bought at Systembolaget in Sweden.

caesar (6644) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2013
Bottled, shared by Ot the Explorer. Clear amber color, short head. Aroma of earthy and flowery hops, not really outspoken, english yeast notes, hint of butter, caramel, toast. It feels for me these kinds of beers should be better drank from cask. Soft bitter taste, slight sweetness. Typical English bitter, hard to distinguish this from other bitters when itís the only bitter in a tasting.
