Quack-Duck (9088) - Down South, - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle from Tesco Exmouth. Clear yellow, mid-sized head. Malt flavours dominate, with some shy but quite ok hop flavours in the finish. Easy-drinking lightweight.

allmyvinyl (9020) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2016
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear golden with a thick white head. Aromas of minerals, cream, butterscotch. Taste is creamy, buttery. Thin, sweet finish.

uckelman (560) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Pours clear, light amber. Small foamy white head, dissipates quickly. Grassy aroma---reminds me a lot of various German pilz. Not much flavor. Inoffensive. Would be good on a hot day, but otherwise not much to recommend it.

sarauckelman (372) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Clear amber with no head. Not much aroma. Not much flavor, a bit grainy, a bit sweet on the end. Clean palate.

ManVsBeer (8040) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle from Tesco, Manchester. Amber with a thin head. Fairly robust English pale that’s slightly sweet. Has a very gritty texture in the palate.

ychvirus (20) - SOUTH KOREA - APR 12, 2015
Quite sweety, caramel and honey taste. 500ml is too big for me. Is this real traditionally English pale ale? I wonder

Mr_Pink_152 (3370) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle from sainsburys. Pale golden colour with a thin white head. Slight citus aroma but on the whole dull as is the taste.

edsspoon (839) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle - pale amber with a frothy white head. Good retention, good lacing. Aroma of orange and hay. Taste of orange, lemon and malt. A little metallic. Some wheat and hay. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Theydon_Bois (16229) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2014
Keg at Lords, I was really pushing the boat out to celebrate Roots Daddy ! 13/06/14. Clear golden amber with a moderate off white head that stays for the show. Nose is bready, pale malts, light fruit rinse, not much depth, inoffensive and forgetabble! Taste cranks up ever so slightly, malt base, fruit notes, bready pangs, light berry fruit, faint caramel. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with a light fruit rinse. So so keg bitter, as expected, not unpleasant just not a lot doing.

greenmanalishi (519) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Very thin and watery. Delicate carbonation and only a hint of citric hop sweetness.

SarkyNorthener (3884) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle from B&M. Amber beer with small head. Aroma is a little sweet malt. Taste is caramel, sweetish light malt and a dusting of hops. Watery, not good.
