downender (6290) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2007
Bottle. Amber coloured with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of grassy hops and balancing fruity malt. Flavour was primarily of fruity malts with some citrus hops (and unfortunately a slightly metallic aftertaste) at the end. Not bad for 80p from ASDA.

maeib (8718) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2007
Bottled. An amber coloured beer with a short lived off white head. The aroma is malty but has an unpleasant farty meaty side to it. This meatines comes through in the taste too. There are fruity malty notes but they are outweighed by some unpleasant notes. Quite tinny too. Not very nice at all.

leaparsons (8089) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2006
Bottle. Amber brown with a small off-white head. Aromas are tea, caramel, spices, pear and sulphur. Flavours are sweet toffee malts, tea, some lemon. Quite malty. Decent sparkle. Pretty dry on finish. Some metal. Not bad for a themed beer.

johndoughty (3992) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2006
I was amazed to find that this is brewed by Darwin and a cousin of the lovely Rolling Hitch. In my opinion its avery poor cousin.Reasonable bronze appearance spoilt by a cardboard like taste and traces of tin. It tasted slihghtly stale. It was in the cut price section at ASDA but its still a ppor beer, or I grabbed abad bottle

JonMoore (1861) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2006
Bottle. Amber coloured with a slim white head. Well balanced malt and hop aroma. Flavours are malts, caramel, some hops and citrus. Light to medium bodied. Very good.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2006
Bottle from Asda. peachy hops lead into a messy toffee and nutty crystal malt body. Too focused on the unintersting malt character.

harrisoni (13733) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2006
500ml bottle from Asda. Well done SilkTork for adding this. Amber colour with thin lasting white head. Goodish aromatic hop. Peppery, some grapefruit from the Amarillo hops. Some juicy malts in mouth, but a bit thin with tart hops and grapefruit on the end. Slightly dusty finish. Nice though. Belies its strength.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2006
Bottle. Asda. I picked this up from Asda mainly because they were selling it off cheap. I wasn’t expecting it to taste good. I thought it was going to be another Federation (Dunston) thin, low quality nonsense. But - wow! - this is great stuff. Research shows that it’s brewed by Darwin, and is a variation of the brilliant Rolling Hitch. A bit of crystal malt and a sprinkling of Fuggles makes this a more traditionally English ale than the clearly American styled Hitch. Sweet, nutty, clean, and with those fragrant Amarillo hops. Stunning!
