b3shine (5713) - Indiana, USA - NOV 10, 2012
16.9 oz bottle to pint (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a transparent burnt-orange with white lacing. Smells doughy and a little bitter and skunky. Tastes like it smells, but not as prominent. Average on the palate. Meh.

scotty (1060) - SCOTLAND - NOV 1, 2012
Attractive golden colour, thin white head. Light malty/hoppy nose, not a lot going on there....may be too cold! Good well balanced palate, soft malt, underlying hops...nice! Good brew!

rjkreid (191) - SCOTLAND - OCT 29, 2012
Toasty aroma with a spicy note which is reminiscent of a rye beer. The earthy flavours continue in the mouth with a spicy flavour which is harsh and vegetal. Notes of smoke in there as well. Rather fizzy as well which increases the buzzy burn of the spice. Quite unusual but also not particularly pleasant.

MadRobin (2028) - Silver Spring, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Poured from 500ml bottle at a beer and cheese tasting at Gilly's in Rockville, MD. Hazy, orange-amber copper with off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of floral hops, grass, grain and malt. Taste of malt, grass, grain and floral hops. Medium/light body and medium/light carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

flying_pig (984) - SCOTLAND - OCT 23, 2012
500ml Bottle from Morissons:
Light & sweet malts to begin with along with some earthy hops and a bit of bread. Light fruits & a bit of sugar too.
Cooper amber, clear body & foamy white head on top that has some beige tinges throughout and stays quite well.
Earthy hops, some sweet malts, a little summer fruits taste, some sugar & some spice at the end.
Full bodied and quite creamy with a smooth and slightly sweet feel to it. Light carbonation & a great real ale feel to this one.
A nice real ale style beer in bottled format here, there is a subdued but rather nice smell and taste that has a few subtle fruity flavours coming through & the balance works quite well. The beer also has a great feel to it.

jamesie1857 (1458) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2012
500ml bottle - Pours orange amber. Some fruit and malt in the aroma. Mouthfeel is somewhat oily and watery. Taste comes off as a mix of some kind of fruit mixed with hops and a light musty flavour and a sweet finish. Overall refreshing and decent.

Bottle. Pale amber with a small white head. Aroma of kumquats, grapefruit, honey, earth, light spices. Sweet light caramel and honey, plenty of citrus, firm bitterness.

planky84 (2116) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle from Morrisons. Amber pour with a white head. Tangerine and orange marmalade aroma. Full of sweet fruit flavours. A splash of pear and yellow melon. Sweet ’n’ fruity finish. Not bad.

berkshirejohn (4645) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
50cl bottle from Morrisons. Golden amber with a loose cream head; caramel malt aroma; strong caramel taste with a malty body and a slightly oily texture; and even more caramel to finish. Rather sweet for my taste, but otherwise pretty good.

Aroma biscuity and malty. Pours a small white head. Faded gold colour. Spicy hops and a toffee taste with pronounced bitterness. Abrupt finish. A decent strong bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
