Pint on tap at Tyn-Y-Groes hotel. Slight malt nose, bronze ale with tiny white head. Nice mouthfeel. Good bitterness with malt undertones. Solid but unspectacular.

jmgreenuk (5802) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 3, 2015
Cask at the Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is light malt hop. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a light, slightly watery malt, light hop bitter palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. A drinkable, light session ale, but somewhat weak and lacking flavour.

Bottle. I’m not sure if this was bottle conditioned as it is crystal clear, with no sediment, and a weak head. Copper body. Thin white head. Nose is orange, citrus, spice, toffee, green apple. Bitter. Bitter and very dry finish. Soft mouthfeel. Very sessionable, Very good.

50cl bottle @ Watson’s Bistro, Conwy. Pours amber with a reasonable head. The nose is all malt and honey. The taste is biscuits and toffee but still fresh. The palate is light to medium in body and texture and fresh enough on the finish. Overall, a well made bitter.

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Taster, on cask at The Hoop, Stock, 16/03/13. Clear orange. Sugary, herb-like aroma. Strange, sweet, herb taste (hard to put my finger on. I thought it might have been some sort of gruit beer). Candy / caramelised sugar. Bit yeasty. Drinkable & OK, but quite odd.

Golden red in colour with a very potent sweet berry aroma. Its taste is rugged with biscuit flavours.

ralphdot (1007) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2012

foxo82 (802) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle. Crystal clear auburn with no head. Woody, hoppy aroma with sweet, fruity notes. Initial taste is weak and watery but there is surprisingly strong bitterness in the finish, given the low ABV.

TEJA (1557) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle at Björn, thanks. Fine beige fluffy head. Amber color. Woody hop aroma with pale maltiness. The taste is also a bit woody from English hops. Dry finnish.

tombyars (1486) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 24, 2012
First tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2006. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear copper red in colour with a thin white head. Tang of metallic hops in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a slightly peppery note to the digestive biscuit malt with tart redcurrant fruit present. Prickle of earthy hop resins give a metallic note to the short bitter aftertaste. Finish is rather weak with malt just about evident along with some tart pithy citric fruit. An ok session bitter but nothing special though.
