Eckato (147) - Gulfport, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Poured and opaque reddish orange with a large white head. Aroma was a tad metallic and tasted malty (which I like). This is a decent English Ale, not super bitter, and has the makings for a long night if one had six more of these. Nothing great...but would never say no.

Grisza77 (104) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Bursztynowe, klarowne piwo o średniej pianie, która zdobi szkło i utrzymuje się do końca w postaci cienkiego pierścionka przy brzegu szkła. Aromat słodowy, karmelowy, ciasteczkowy. W smaku głownie słód i karmel ze szczyptą chmielu. Goryczka niska. Przyjemne i jak na zawartość alkoholu bardzo pijalne piwo, ale nic szczególnego w nim nie ma, za mało czuć w nim chmielu, typowo brytyjskie piwo.

Estebanik (209) - Lublin, POLAND - JUL 27, 2015
Piana naprawd? drobna, trwala. Aromat dosc ulotny chmielowy, slodowy. W smaku ciasteczkowe, z goryczkowym finiszem. Finisz lekko alkoholowy, ale absolutnie to nie przeszkadza. Jest spoko

mariuszek (538) - Gdynia, POLAND - JUL 28, 2015
Opaque, amber, creamy head falling down to thin ring. Almost no lacing. Aroma of biscuits, sour cherries, spices. Impression of a Christmas ale or glühwein. Biscuits and fruits in taste, some alcohol, but it fits here. Fruity sour-sweet aftertaste. Really nice brew.

PiwnyMarek (464) - Łomża, POLAND - JUL 27, 2015
Ujdzie. Aromat nikły, lekko alkoholowy. W kolorze herbaciane, mętne, piana słaba, lekki lacing. W smaku jest ok, ale trochę przeszkadza posmak alkoholu.

mgajdaczewa (906) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 25, 2015
W aromacie nieco słodowośći, karmel, może nutka wanilii. Ok. W smaku za to nic ciekawego się ie wydarza, półpełne, nieco karmelu, więcej tosta, niska goryczka i wyraźny alkoholowy finisz odbierający radość z picia. Nie jest tragicznie, ale dobrze wcale.

Slautar (129) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Aromat mało intensywny - ani przeszkadza, ani zachwyca. Goryczka bliżej średniej niż niskiej, raczej przyjemna. Alkohol lekko rozgrzewa przełyk. P.S. Odbija się jak po Specjalu :-(

bobroman (651) - Torun, POLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Not very intensive aroma of malts nd caramel with some hints of alcohol. Head disappearing to durable layer. Clear amber colour. A lot of malty sweetness in taste with only light bitterness. Alcohol in aftertaste. Quite tiring.
