gegwilson (983) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 An amber ale with a white head. A touch of citrus with biscuit and caramel notes. This might not be the most exciting ale in the world, but itís a solid easy drinking bitter.

witthatsbier (209) - glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 11, 2013
This once mighty beer has been reduced to a ordinary uninspiring ale of no distinction, the beer did always suffer in itís hey day from being put on to soon in those leaving it to settle for 2 weeks in the cellar at least got rid of just about all of the sulphor ,not sure if that matters to day formerly a five star beer
