worldbeertaste (1718) - 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.

sharkydodson (485) - 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...

TedE (359) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2015
500ml bottle into pint glass. Hoppy/malt nose. Slightly cloudy golden beer with solid white head. Bitter hop taste with toasted malt tones. A little carbonation. Excellent bitter finish.

sarauckelman (235) - 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 (281) - 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 (67) - 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.

GregClow (2949) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle from Marston’s Classic Ales gift pack at LCBO. Light and bright golden body with a couple of fingers of white head. Clean aroma of lightly toasted grain, touch of honey, peppery hops. Flavour is similarly clean and has a similar profile as well - honey-on-toast up front, orange and pepper hops in the finish. Body gets a bit sticky as it warms, but otherwise, a simple and pleasant ale.

mR_fr0g (4734) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle at home. Aroma is spicy hop, hop leaf, a little grain. Later a little soapy note on the nose. Pale golden coloured pour with a lasting thin white head. Flavour is composed of chalky carbonation, thin grainy malts, carbonic acid, pinch of caramel. Palate is thin and watery, high chalky carbonation.

sebletitje (7156) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2014
Boutielle 50cl, merci à ma voisine. Dorée, col fin blanc. Arôme offre un bouquet agréable rappelant de suite des effluves organiques de miel ’honey blossom’ accompagné d’un bon fleuri noble. Palais garde une amertume basique anglaise pour une bière dont l’effervescence est un peu trop dominante. Petite douceur en toute fin de bouche.

Bottle from Cellarbrations Sandy Bay 151214. Fruity with a dry finish. More golden ale than bitter. Smooth and easy to drink
