DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2008
Bottle from Arden wines. Attractive fruity aroma with lemon jelly, tomato leaf, celery, strawberry jam and banana-like esters. Half the fruitbowl, then. Bright dirty amber with good lacing and lively carbonation. Ash and soap in the mouth with hints of apple, strawberry and rubber. Can I wring any more fruit/vegetable metaphors out of this one? No, banana, strawberry, tomato, celery, lemon and apple will do. Quietly impressive bottled bitter with a good gust of sensible but fruity hops.

bottle from Darts Farm. Hazy copper-brown colour with a red glow. Fruity nose. Malty with hints of caramel, fruit (lemon, banana, raisin). Short and light finish with some sharp and dry hhoppy notes.

leaparsons (7798) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2008
Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Aromas are biscuit malts with tea and some light fruitiness. Some floral and nutty notes. Flavours are dry with minimal malts. Tea with hints of soapiness. Peppery and bitter on the finish. Spritzy and in decent condition.

SilkTork (5118) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2007
500ml bottle from a Torquay supermarket. Foamy head, and a yeasty sharpness typical of British bottle conditioned beers. As dj says, this is like a tasty enough homebrew. There’s nothing special going on here - beer has been brewed and it tastes OK. Light, refreshing, fairly dry, with some citric sharpness.

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2006
Bottle. Bitter with traces of sulphur. Not impressed at first but it did improve with drinking.Properly bottled it might be a reasonable bitter.

dj (467) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2006
Bottle, 500ml, bottle conditioned. A cloudy golden colour with a small creamy/smooth head. A fair few yeast particles in the bottom of the bottle. A sweet, hoppy aroma with biscuity notes. A hoppy, yeasty taste with malt and more biscuity notes. Well balanced. A hoppy, citrus finish. Very light carbonation. This is just like good homebrew.
