worldbeertaste (1741) - West Midlands, - OCT 25, 2012
Medium to dark amber/orange with a disappearing white no lace, frothy head. Smells and tastes of toasted malt, caramel, butter and a light citrus bitterness. Some light fruit. Medium thin body. Starts out rather sweet malt, caramel with a bit of grass on the bitter hop finish. The fruitiness is enjoyable. Nice balance overall. The finish has a bit of a chemical tinge due to the pasteurisation.

Radek Kliber (6682) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Where and how: b 500 ml.
Aroma medium intense. Slightly peppery hop notes with toasty malts behind.
Appearance :
Top: larger, lasting creamy cap.
Base: hazy amber gold.
Palate : lighter bodied, lighter carbonation, even watery.
Taste: plain watery base with slightly toasty malts with late notion of bittering hops.
Other notes there are many more nice bitter ales that this one.

Hippoman (127) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle from Co-op, New Mills, Derbyshire. Pours pale amber with frothy white head and obvious high carbonation. Looks like a run of the mill pale lager and tastes rather like one too, IE not of a great deal. Some citrus in the finish saves it from being very forgettable.

JohnRMurdoch (3790) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 21, 2015
500ml bottle. Golden amber, big foamy head. Tropical fruit and grain aroma. Metallic oaty honey flavour. Bitter sweet aftertaste. Much better than expected.

sharkydodson (631) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - APR 21, 2015
the aroma is malty and herbal with some hints of spices... the taste is malty with notes of garden fruits and bright hoppy bitterness... dry and bitter finishing...

sarauckelman (267) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Clear light caramel in color, wtih a moderate white head. Not much aroma. A bit bitter and weedy in the flavor. Highly carbonated. Too hoppy for my taste.

christhoel (286) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
bottle, a clear light amber with slight carbonation with a large frothy head. Aroma is of citrus and honey. A fruity/flowery flavours combine well and it is clean and crisp as it moved easily through my mouth.

DIBBLE (102) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Poured with thick delicate foam head that slowly popped away leaving a soap scum covering inside the glass. Clear amber colour with light carbonation fizz on the tongue. No bold statements in the flavour dept but a light balance of white bread and subtle floral hop. Sweet malty finish.
