Atheist_Peace (884) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2011
500ml bottle. Clear golden pour with an almost white head that leaves a little lace. Very little aroma but what there is is a little sweet with a grainy vibe with a hint of fruit. All of the same elements play out on the palate with a slightly sweet finish.

mkel07 (2520) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2011
500ml bottle. Pretty clear in the glass and holds a level layer of white foam. Golden amber in colour. Sweet honey infused fruit aromas are appealling and there is a modest level of bitterness. Flavour is moderate with good mouthfeel and texture.

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2011
Cask handpul at Hope Spoons Reading. Clear pale gold thin white head. Some butter in this. Tastes quite fresh in mouth. Fairly light in all other flavours which accentuates the butter. Some hop sting on finish. Diacetyl on aroma. Not huge butter but its there and just doesnt go with the hops. Good condition though

jkwood04 (3394) - Connecticut, USA - APR 23, 2011
500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of a light beer, and nothing much else. Flavor of light malts and light floral hops. Not a bad beer, but really light and not a lot of flavor.

prawlie (1052) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2011
From the bottle in a pint glass at home. Golden blonde clear beer with a light and fluffy head, but a bit fairy liquid looking. Nice strong fruity, hoppy aroma. A fruity but bitter and hoppy first taste. Its more than your average English bitter and its pretty good, more complex than many of its type.

ComradeK (922) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a golden amber, with a small head, but shocking retention and no lace. Sweet malt notes abound on the nose, with burnt caramel and a hint of honey. There is a decent level of bitterness to start, with pine and pepper hops coming through strongly. More malt comes in towards the middle, and becomes quite fruity, before a very smooth honey finish. None of these flavours are particularly pronounced, however - it is a little lacking in flavour. It is also a tad too watery. This is certainly a long way from spectacular.

hawthorne00 (2252) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2011
Bottle. Clear orange with a beige head that retreats to the rim. Aroma of pears, flowers, light butterscotch. Taste has those and some biscuits, making it quite full in the mouth. Some citrus and spice along with the orchard fruit and flowers too. Long gently bitter finish. Quite nice refreshing bitter, perhaps a little heavy.

Bottle 5%. Clear golden pour with a short-lived rocky white head. Aroma is quite hoppy with grass, citrus, biscuit and caramel notes. Flavour is very much like the aroma but with a strong taste of cardboard and mineral hints. Light, slightly oily mouthfeel with soft carbonation and a long bitter finish. This seemed quite promising from the nose but the cardboard flavour really let it down. Not dreadful, drinkable, but not particularly good.
