Martin243 (762) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2013
1/2 at the Robin Hood Jarrow. Clear bright gold, white head. Straw and honey aroma. Quite a mellow honey and butterscotch flavour, without being at all cloying. Definitely a premium bitter. The finish is bitter enough, but not as astrigently bitter as an IPA, which means this a nicely balanced, moreish beer.

Scopey (6719) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2011
Cask at CP&K. It pours clear straw yellow, with a thin foamy white head and no carbonation. The nose is Weetabix, floral, white bread and mild cheddar cheese. The taste is straw, weak lemon, metal, hay, butter and white bread, with a light bitter finish. Bland and boring.

Cask at Southampton Arms, London on 26th January 2011. Yellowy gold; thin, dying ring of foam. Sweetish aroma with berry fruits. Fruitiness and sweet caramel notes in-mouth and a rather sweet endtaste. Disappointing as an IPA.
