King is paler than many bitters whilst remaining exceptionally well balanced and long lasting on the palate.

Backlog. Tried it bottled. Just didn’t do it for me, not enough malt-base to be called an ESB according to me.

500ml bottle @ the 2nd Shrewsbury Bottle Share, courtesy of Luc. One of the bottles we didn’t quite finish last time. Pours a browny gold, crisp citrus, biscuit malts with a caramel hue. Drinkable session beer.

500ml Bottle: shared between four at the second ever Shrewsbury Bottle Share on 24th Feb 2014, cheers Luc for bringing it. This is my fourth beer from these guys and they have all been better than OK so far, this didn’t hurt their reputation either. Pours a pleasant light amber colour with head that is almost white, if a little thin in places. A slightly more malty nose than hoppy, some subtle fruitiness with a caramel undertone to the aromas. The taste is also leaning towards the malty side although there is a drying finish to each sip. Semi-sweet biscuity feel to the flavour with some caramel loitering about as well. Touches of a citrus nature calm the malts down and help to balance the beer somewhat, an easy drinking brew that helped the evening to flow nicely.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - AUG 11, 2013
Very enjoyable medium bodied beer which does not taste as strong as it really is. Aroma of apple orchard and summer meadow. Flavour of toffee apple, fudge and caramel crème biscuits. Some bitterness in the ending. I loved it.

Pours nice and amber workout much of a head. Pleasant clean taste with a slight bitter twang and a nice kind of sherbert finish.
