McTapps (3574) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a clear deep amber colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of nuts and caramel. Taste of honey, caramel, torf, malt, hops and flowers. Hints of nuts. Easy and nice to drink - quaffable.

Ale dark ambar colour with a thin head. Poor malt aroma without interesting notes. Taste is poor malt and some caramel, not intense. Watery body

sockless (21) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 26, 2013
Very malty aroma, no hops on the nose at all. Nice dark amber-brown colour, creamy head. Very malty flavour, a bet sweet, very smooth. Couldn’t taste any hops at all. Slightly thin, but not too bad. Good beer for having a few on a weekend, or to throw back at the pub. Wouldn’t miss it if it disappeared.

dynamiteninja (1468) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle. Medium white head with okay retention. Amber body. Nose is malt, hops, wheat and yeast. Light bitterness. Dry finish. I like the style, which is that of an English bitter, but this is average.

sm89walt (1741) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle - Bungalow 8, Auckland. Poured a clear, deep copper-amber with a fine, slowly fading off-white head. Mid-fruits, leafy, grassy-ish hops, some toasty-ish malt. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and a short, low intensity bitterness.

it was better than the tui, because it has a bit more of a malt base. that’s it.

AndreasJaeger (505) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2013
Kopparfärged med vitt skum. KAramellig och maltig i doften, lite jordig humlekaraktär. Lätt söt och karamellig maltton, kola och toffee. avslutas torrt och jordigt.

Grzesiek79 (3114) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 9, 2013
Dobre i smaczne, treściew piwo amber ale. Piana średnia ale trwała, tworzy kręgi na szklanicy. Rudo-brązowy kolor. Piwo aromatyczne w smaku, finisz bardzo wytrawny.

Clear red - amber beer, bright! Good cream coloured head. Mildly crisp palate,a tad dry. Nice even malt, trace of cream and a whisper of toffee. Super mild minerally hops, vaguely orange. Semi dry finish.

ElDesmadre (1475) - Mikołów, POLAND - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle. Light brown with a small head. Aroma is mainly caramel, some apple notes, hints of nuts, raisins and hops. Tastes like a brown ale with prominent apple notes. Dry and refreshing, with a light body, low carbonation and a low to medium bitterness. I’d have to lie to write I didn’t like this. Really nice, sessionable summer beer.
