pintbypint (3070) - Edmonton, Alberta, - SEP 7, 2012
500ml brown bottle. Deep orange body. Head is light tan, dense, tthick and long lasting. Lots of thick lacing. Nose has sweet malts, a bit of fruit and citrus peels. Taste is pretty hoppy, nice citrus notes, some sweetness and caramel malts, some fruitiness. Finishes hoppy with lasting grapefruity and orange peel like hops. Also a lasting malt note that is a bit earthy and nutty. Light body, mild carbonation. Lots of flavour for a lighter alc beer, and gorgeous in the glass. Overall this is a nicely hopped UK red ale that is richer and hoppier than expected.

Nonshaugen (201) - Fetsund, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2015
33 cl (11,2 fl oz) bottle, 5,5% ABV. Clear, dark amber to red-brown, thin tan head, lively rolling carbonation. Aroma is sweet and malty, some toffee. Great traditional English style bitter going on. It’s malty, toffee and caramel notes, a bit fenolic, medium carbonated, bittering hops are present in the aftertaste. Very nice treat!

Sjohnh (536) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015
Attractive red - brown colour, with a thin white head which fades to leave a bit of lacing. Body on the light side of medium. Nose is floral, with a hint of violet as advertised on the label, and some red fruit sitting on top of bready malt. Malt is a more pronounced in the taste, with more cherry and is sight!y metallic. Nice enough.

Vighals (2237) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2015
Orangebrun klar med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter karamell, noe brent. Fyldig. Søt med mye bitterhet, sammen med medium kullsyre gir det en skikkelig kraftig smak helt fra starten.
