Muggus69 (2119) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2014
OLD NOTES JAN 5, 2004 A really light dark malt scent on it, almost undetectable without a good sniff. Pours a clean deep ruby amber colour. A caramel malt body. A few little candy sweet characters, but quite watery overall. Also a fair bit of carbonation in the mouth. I’m quite disappointed.

ManVsBeer (8697) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle from Booths. Deep copper-amber but next to no head. Has a light malt aroma with a good character to it without being full of flavour.

chinchill (4270) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2014
On tap at the brewery in Greymouth, NZ Excellent clarity in this deep amber ale. Both flavor and aroma are a bit light for style; the lightest pale ale I’ve had in NZ. Still, very well-crafted and balanced, as well as very fresh (of course). Feel: Light+ body with medium-high, very crisp carbonation. Clean finish. O: recommended as a somewhat light flavored pale ale.

MichaelAwesome (6458) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - DEC 20, 2013
Mild and solid one. Some hops with a decent malty background. Hints if caramel and balanced carbo. Quaffy, classy piwo.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 28, 2013
The head is ok, the body amber. It smells hoppy, intensive, maltaromatic. The taste is malty, mild, bit hoppy, bit fruity.

McTapps (6482) - Reutlingen, 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 (1825) - Norfolk, 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 (1947) - 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.
