jimmie65 (330) - Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Hazy gold pour. Aroma is orange, floral. Mild, more like a pale ale. Good balance of sweet and bitter but I expected a little more bite. Smooth. Malt, citrus, a little caramel.

jjsint (920) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, drunk at home. Orange-gold, hazy with plentiful carbonation. Aroma of apricot, lemon rind, Pixy Stix, a bit of toasty backbone. Taste is sweeter that expected, with a bit of fruity sour/bitter in the finish. Lemony bittersweet aftertaste. Nothing too special, but quite a good, dependable drink.

brnandersen (2027) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2014
50 cl. bottle. Clear, golden colour with an amber tint. Big, creamy white head. Fruity aroma with grasses, citrus, caramel malts, floral and herbal hops. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with grass, citrus and biscuits. Some herbal notes. Nice, classic styled English ESB/IPA - however, more bitter than usual.

MSBrindbergs (430) - Solna, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2014
Flaska från Alko, Finland. Dimmig orangebrun vätska med ett fint tjockt skum. Doftar parfym och frukt. Fruktig blommig smak. Händer inte så mycket. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rune (8486) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2014
500ml bottle, beer gift from Finn, thanks. Finger-thick, tight, white head with moderate lacing. Clear golden body. Smell of herbal hops and mid-sweet pale malts. Mixed taste of caramel, herbal hops and resinous bitterness to the finish. Medium bodied. Soft on the swallow. A classic British strong bitter ale, half way pleasing (Tromsø 22.08.2014)

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2014
This is one of the very best traditional British IPAs that I've ever had. Poured w/ a giant fluffy long-lasting off-white head, clinging lace and a clear medium amber color. Aroma is hop yeast and fruit. Flavor is fairly dry and has hop bitterness and carbonic tang balanced. Body is perfect. Excellent drinking beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from old backlog notes early 07. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor had some floral notes, light fruit character, bready malts, some oxidation, pretty average stuff.
