Bronze body, decent head. Light crystal malt graininess. Muted hop and a bit metallic odor. Rather bland body. It has a light grain body and very muted hoppyness. Slightly tannic cereal grain finish, perhaps a touch of cardboard and soap.

Gourmet Burger branded bottle. Dark gold with a white froth. Nose is bitter lemons, grapefruit. Taste is lemons, a sweet malt cutting through and a weak, but bitter finish. Nothing to rave about, but nothing to spit out either. I was expecting worse.

Had as ’Gourmet Burger Kitchen Organic Pale Ale’ - I assume it’s the same stuff. Drinkable but pretty boring attempt at the style with feint hints of hop, yeast and orange.

mike5326 (935) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Poured from a bottle. Clear golden color. Nice full white frothy head. Yeast and dough like smell. Slight bitter bread like flavor with a hops and malt character. Not very good.

Bottle from Sainsburys. Gusher! It had been sitting quietly for ages too, all over the kitchen. Came out a sort of middle amber colour, rocky white head. Despite gusher status actually tasted quite flat. A kind of blandish English bitter, a hint of the homebrew about it. Guessing it was a bit infected, but I’d be surprised if I bother trying it again to check.

Bottle. Pretty average-looking amber beer, with an average to thin head. The aroma is musty, sweet and mashy. Despite the somewhat off-putting initial impression, this drinks fiarly well ... firm, if a bit wet, malty character overall, with a little musty finish. (#5088, 7/1/2013)

zickbeer_ye (281) - Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Tart cherry and dry fruit with an earthy hop scent. Off white foamy head orange slight yellow body. Sweet kinda tart dry berry and slight hoppy mild rooty taste. Slight tart crisp and wet on the palate.

dfinney23 (1731) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2013
The only draw here is if you’re looking for an organic beer because other than that it’s pretty generic. Some malt, lightly bitter finish. Meh.

Emeister84 (1038) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Fruity aromas, redolent of strawberries and peaches, with a hint of fresh clay. The appearance of orange honey with a somewhat lasting, rocky, white head. Off-dry with some flavors of honey and golden raisins. Light bodied with low carbonation and a dull finish.

bottle at royal mile Pours golden with a thin white head. Aroma is hard to poiint out, some malt sweetness with a little apple with a dry bitter finish. ok

Room temp bottle. Clear orange. Smells yeasty. Foamy in the mouth. Taste is not that pleasant - a bit metallic. Pretty poor overall.
