Pours with a decent, somewhat off-white, head. It's duration is average. My nose isn't working to well but the ale smells sweet. The taste is enjoyable with the malts standing out. There are just enough hops to make this beer not tip too far on the malty side. The palate is all malt and is also enjoyable. Hey, this a well rounded brew. Probably would go great with fried or grilled foods. Maybe has a little too much carbonation.

Bottle from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. A golden beer with a toffee, malty and caramel flavour followed by a slight floral hoppy bitter-sweet finish. Ok.

Served in a snifter from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel malts with bready notes. Taste is bitter-sweet, predominantly malty with notes of caramel and biscuit, with a short soft bitter and hoppy finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very drinkable, refreshing and enjoyable. Nice one.

Lovely stuff. Poured into ceramic stein as outdoors . Light light tasting. Refreshing lemon slice aroma and in mouth. Creamy pine in there too. So easily sunk. Did not drink like 5.1%. Would be great for session

Butelka. Zlota barwa. Piana biala mala. W aromacie orzechowe nuty. Owoce. Wodniste. W smaku plytkie o goryczkowym finiszu. Nic wielkiego.

Bottle from M&S Stratford and drunk at home. Clear copper amber colour with lasting ivory head. Malty pasteurised aroma. Some fruity malt flavour later on . Not much hop. Just the pasteurisation doesn’t help. Gets better later but still not great. Don’t pasteurise beer please.

Sharezie from Rory Duncan watching rugby World Cup. Malty ale with brown ale overtones. Hopping to balance but overall sweet.

Bottle from Booths. Amber with a rapidly diminishing head. Light malt aroma with a hint of citrus and plums - though this description is slightly biased after reading the tasting notes 1001 Beer to Drink before you Die! Good malty body, bitter yet sweet. Nice fruity notes. A decent ale.
