johndoughty (3960) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Slight bitterness that lingers for some time. A bit bland at first but more flavours developed over time. Quite reasonable.

Cornfield (5473) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2014
From the bottle this poured a clear pale golden amber body with a bubbly eggshell head that soon reduced to something less than a film. The key word to this ale is "light." Light on aroma, body, and flavor. The nose held a light sweetness, a light earthiness, and an even lighter touch of caramel. The light flavor was white bread with a mild (read, "light") earthy bitterness. Light rating.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Rated on 5-15-2012 (Bottle) This beerís appearance is a small white head with a short retention, gold transparent body, fast rising, fizzy carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt and hops. The flavor is lightly bitter, hops, sweet, and malt. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and thin. This is a light bodied beer. There is not much character to this beer. It is a pretty straightforward beer...malt and hops. The end.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
Bottle at home. The best thing I can say about this is it was 59p. Poured a light amber brown wuth a thin off white head. Typical English caramel malts, little fruity hops. Not for me thanks all the same.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear light amber body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is sweet and fruity with some husky grain with a minimal hop note. The flavor is a little overly sweet for my tastes, itís like watery caramel with just a light bitterness on the finish. This doesnít do anything for me at all. Light bodied and a bit watery with fizzy carbonation. I really donít care for all the grape juice like fruitiness in here. Iíll pass on a second chance to try this one.
