Pours cloudy with a thick white head. Mild, pear like aroma. Very refreshing taste, some grapefruit but not much else going on. Strong tangy after taste. Definitely not very complex, but delicious all the same.

Bronze colour. Grainy, scent of bread with metallic notes. Grainy, bitter ale with more metallic notes in the flavour. Citric acid in the flavour too. Fortunately metal is in the background enough and doesnít completely ruin the experience.

Not a lot of carbonation, so a pretty mild nose atop an orange body. Pretty good weight for mouthfeel with a little more carbonation coming through. Very mild bitter flavor, with a pretty dry slightly floral finish -- you could easily have quite a few of these. I like this beer, and I think itíd be wonderful on draught (ultimate session beer).

Clear copper orange; medium white head. Light aroma, mandarin orange? DRY, hoppy flavor, leaning towards metallic, but Not in a bad way. Soft grainy aftertaste. Light bodied, very drinkable. Consider this my introduction of sorts with British beers; I donít know of anything like this in the U.S. The kind of beer that you want to have around in large quantities, simple but very effective. Unfortunately a little cost-prohibitive here though.

500ml Bottle - Amber with a foamy head. Malty and fruity aroma with a hint of banana and walnut cake. Nicely balanced taste with notes of hops, malt and a slightly grainy finish. Steady and fairly tasty.

Nothing too complex, and a little thin and not really bursting with flavor but still good. This is more of a easy drinking session beer. The ale version of other countries everyday lager. Serving: Bottle

I wish that we had more good English bitters and milds sold in this country. This beer is pleasantly light with a clean, fresh flavor. It would make for an excellent session beer. It pours a bright, light orange with dark yellow highlights and a wonderfully creamy head. The aroma is lightly citric with an excellent light malt presence. While itís very well-balanced, there is still a noticeable hop focus. The feel is soft and creamy with gentle bitterness. I imagine that itís great from the cask. Of course, for all I know, this beer could be terrible compared to its competition in England.
