Nomhab (16) - - JUL 1, 2012
Ljus öl med mycket jästfällning. Trevlig doft med en hel del frukt, svag, svårdefinierbar smak med på tok för bitter eftersmak. Lever inte upp till förväntningarna.

jamesie1857 (1944) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2016
500ml bottle from Aldi - Hazy amber body, medium white head. Nose is a tinny caramel, yeasty, basement aroma. Taste is metallic, weak caramel, bit of a wash out. Not the best, not the worst.

MrJamesMcEwan (201) - SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2015
* Bottle. Pours golden amber, cloudy, with a white head and sediment. * Aroma is foul hoppy with lemon & grapefruit. * Palate is light, high carbonation, fine bubbles, medium dry. * Taste is bitter, lemon, grapefruit & grassy. * Finish is long, moist, then drying. * Overall foul aroma of hops ruins this bitter.
