[500ml bottle, gift from Mum & Dad - cheers!] Pours very clear copper, swiftly diminishing off-white head. Malt and lemon aroma. Good, rich bready maltiness with some fruit in the background. Decent, well-balanced clean bitterness in finish. Alright, itís not complex, but itís a damn fine malty bitter, with a good depth of flavour considering the low ABV. Nice one!

StueyD (1106) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2006
A dark, amber brown beer with a frothy off white head. A very discreet, slightly sweet, malty nose with a hint of hops in the finish. The taste is dry and bitter hoppiness to begin with, then a mellow smooth maltiness with a hint of honey, The aftertaste is dry on the mouth. Nice, quirky story behind the name! Bottle Conditioned

Bottle (22/10/10). Burnt caramel in the nose then berries in the early taste. Nice, satisfying, above average beer.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2006
While the light-hearted brewery and beer name make you think these guys have been getting into too much of their own product, the end result is surprisingly impressive. Standard orange/brown pale ale colour. Big caramel and vanilla aromas and a silky-smooth palate. Very nice balance between malt and hop. Well-designed woody character that especially shines through on the medium-length finish. Nice, nice stuff.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2008
A Sim rate (bottle from Waitrose): Malty aroma like a horlicks or maltesers. Sweet, yet pungent. Biscuits. Bread. Yeast. Not much to the flavour. Slight bitterness in the finish. Itís not as beautiful as Daze. And not nearly as sweet.

leaparsons (7923) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2006
Bottle. Amber, brown with a small head. Aromas are sweet toffee malts and lemon with a light roast character. Flavours are lightly malty with citrus. Quite hoppy and dry towards the finish. Tasty for its strength. A good session beer.

yngwie (13104) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2007
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body, with a nice, lasting, creamy, off-white head. Delicate nose of malt, caramel and hops. I wish for a more pronounced hoppiness though. The flavor is quite bitter, with caramel and pale malt to follow. Medium body. Nice finish with some hops. A nice session beer, but they could easily put more hops in it, bitterness that is.

rauchbier (3587) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2004
Bottle, from Waitrose in Lincoln. Amber gold, thin white head and gentle condition. Pleasantly fruity hops and vaguely toasted nuts in the nose, some hints of melon, herbal hoppiness and low nuts in the mouth and a fruity finish tempered by a dry bitterness.

bhensonb (10688) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Light malt aroma. Amber color with a major persistent head. Taste is light malt, with bitter. I donít find it dry. Malt stays to the finish, but the hops end up dominant. A tasty and interesting beer with session level alcohol. Very nice. However, my bottle does not seem to be bottle conditioned. The words are not on my bottle, and there is no noticable sediment. Sadly, things do change.
