Finn (4363) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2006
Bottle 0,5l. Pale golden (lager) colour. A white good-looking head. A balanced beer without distinction. Quite dull, actually. Some fruity notes.

RichardGretton (4277) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2006
Bottle. Brown/amber beer with a fizzy head. The aroma is very light, and the flavour is quite weak, slightly watery, but with enough caramel and dryness to be OK. Overall a plain beer.

johndoughty (4064) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2006
Bottled. Orange appearance and poured with a medium head. Some citrus traces and a lingering bitterness.Plenty of body and balance. A pleasant and distinctive bitter.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2006
A Mes rate: Aroma is standard English ale. Refused to give me any head at all (no matter how much money I offered it). Floral and hoppy flavour with a sticky finish. Nothing special at all.

imdownthepub (10581) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2006
Bottled, Pasteurised, 500ml. Amber coloured with short lasting head. Deadish on the tongue, this is a metallic tasting malt beer. A little sweet with a note of pear drops and a staleish cardboard note. Probably overpasteurised, quite disapointing.

scotty (1060) - SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2006
Very attractive golden colour, the white head lasts fairly well...leaves some lace. Light and quite delicate nose of fruity hops.This fresh character is notcable on the plalate too, sweet malt blends well with the delicious fruity hop acids. Very nice. Sainsbury.

Fin (7620) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2006
500ml Bottle from Sainsbury’s 14-04-06. Amber with a large head, some toffee flavour and bit too sweet reasonabl bitter finish.

harrisoni (14021) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2006
500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Why do brewers do this? They take what on the face of it is a perfectly acceptable bitter and then ruin it when they pasteurise it and put it in a bottle. What do they think we are, hard of taste or something? Please, please, please stop doing this and stop ruining your beers. Amber in colour with thin white head. Biscuity aroma with some hop. But then everything goes wrong. My teeth still ache from the metallic dead taste in the mouth. Stale flavours before a hint of hop bitterness on the end. Aaargh. Please stop killing your beers, I beg every UK brewer who bottles their product, take the risk and bottle condition.

leaparsons (8264) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2006
Bottle. Amber with a large head of foam. Aromas are dry biscuit malts with some toffee. Flavours are fruity with toffee and dry biscuit. Sweet without being especially malty. Far too much carbonation. Has a stale, bitter finish. Mediocre.

2.3
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2006
Reddish amber with a small head. The strong, toasty aroma was followed by an insipid sweet malt taste with too much fizziness. Hardly any bitterness.
