Bottle conditioned (500ml). Bright golden with a decent white head. Nose is light straw, flowery and lightly spicy hops. Taste is similar with a decent yet mellow bitterness. Low carbonation and lightish body make for easy refreshing quaffability. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle conditioned, 500ml from Cromer Farm & Health Shop, Cromer, Norfolk. Orange gold with white head. Quite a fragrant beer, some vanilla some floweriness. The body is light, easy drinking with a citrus and orange hint followed by a leafy, herby hop note. Nice and refreshing, pretty good.

BlackHaddock (3895) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2012
March 2010: Brown 500ml bottle containing a ’bottle conditioned’ bitter. It was poured carefully into a vase shaped pint glass. The colour is a red/amber colour, clear and fairly bright. A white head tried to sit on top, but what was there at the start didn’t stay long and nothing was seen of the head after 50 seconds. It just looked flat, it wasn’t but it looked like it was. Smells half way between a coke and a vimto, not too beery, some flowery hops might have tried to break through, but very little did. The actual flavours were fine, hoppy, yeasty and beery in general. The beer was well balanced and easy to drink, in short, an ideal session bitter. If I ever have another, I’ll take it in a tankard so I can’t see the head isn’t there!

sm89walt (1766) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2011
500ml bottle. A slightly hazy though quite lively golden amber beer with a large & mostly lasting rocky white head. Orange, a hint of grapefruit & spicy lemon aromas. Light spicy on the palate with marmalade, delicate grapefruit notes and a sweet biscuity malt base. Crisp, juicy & refreshing with a mild dryness on the mid palate. Light to medium body and fresh medium carbonation finishing with a lingering marmalade bitterness. Well conditioned.
