JohnCook101 (416) - - OCT 31, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours light copper with a thin head. Yeasty aroma. Light tartness, some citrus with a light and underwhelming finish. Lacking complexity and punch, this one just peters out a little. Not unpleasant but slightly disappointing.

eastkenttom (99) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle from local offy. A solid bitter, got some toffee tangs. I kinda like the old time bottle and label, too. One of those beers that’s great with dry-roasted peanuts.

AshtonMcCobb (3908) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 6, 2015
50cl bottle from Krafty Pint in Darlington. Appearance - golden amber with a decent head. Nose - soggy cereal with a little citrus in there too. A bit metallic too, truth be told. Taste - more metallic and citrus notes over sweet malt. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry bitter finish. Overall - spoilt slightly by the metallic note. Apart from that quite balanced.

Quack-Duck (8568) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2014
bottle from the bargain box at Darts Farm Topsham UK. Clear chestnut colour, off-white head. Malty base, good aromatic hoppy finish leaving a bitter aftertaset. Nice one.

Mr_Pink_152 (1913) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2014
500ml bottle from B&M. Amber coloured with a minimal white head. Aroma and flavour has malt and hops and toffee with a bitterness in the finish. At 3.7% it’s a good session beer.

allmyvinyl (6301) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2014
3.7% bottle from B&M Edinburgh. Pours clear amber, thin white head. Aromas of stewed apples, biscuit. Taste is more stewed fruit, and a bit sweaty. Chewy texture. Not great.

gegwilson (2102) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle from B&M Stockton. Amber with an off white head. Quite a hoppy bitter really. A fair hit of citrus with a touch of spice and some honey notes.

SarkyNorthener (2997) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle from B&M. Amber beer with medium head. Aroma of toffee and hops. Taste is malts, hops and some toffee. Bog standard affair.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 5, 2014
500 ml bottle. Clear dark yellow, sudsy white head. Faint malt and hop aroma. Flavour follows with the same conservative malt hop balance. Light, a touch watery, soft carbonation. Slight bitterness towards the finish. Inoffensive.

jookos (3494) - FINLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Cask@angle. Copper clear. Slight citrusy green hoppy with light crackery caramel. Nice medium bodied, slightly drying herbal finish. Ok, tasty.

Oakes (13536) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2014
Amber, toasty with a light orchard fruit note. Ok. Fairly standard bitter with a slightly minerally character.
