500 ml bottle from backlog notes. Pours a clear orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, mild fruit character, a mild hop profile, with light bitterness, seemed older and rather bland.

Skinnyviking (7141) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle at home. High creamy and lasting off-white head. Clear amber body. Sweet and mild malt straw aroma. Thinbodied and somewhat watery malt caramel flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long dry finish.

solidfunk (4168) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 4, 2014
A little more hops makes this a little better than the Oxfordshire for me. Pours amber, a little light than Oxfordshire ESB. Light citrus dose here, texture is a little cloying. Cask at Churchkey.

wheresthepath (1568) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Light amber with an off-white head. Bit of bread, bit of earth, bit of straw, bit of vomit, bit of caramel, bit mellow, bit bland, bit boring. Dull for the strength.

A generic bitter, not overdoing it either way, not a roller coaster ride. Looks good, rest average good.

wlajwl (3932) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 10, 2013
Aroma is berries/fruit, English hops and malts. The flavor is malts, berries/fruit, biscuit malts, toffee and a tart/citrus finish.

Patrickctenchi (3814) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours light, clear copper with a chunky off-white head. Aroma of apples...malt. Taste is softly fruited and bready. Light hop bitter. Nice, if a bit simple and plain.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2013
500ml bottle, from Jungle Jimís in Eastgate. Clear orange color. Good thin off-white head. Little lace. Medium body. Smooth light - to - medium carbonation. More clean finish. Mostly clean malt-forward biscuity flavor, little metalic.. Saw "roast malts on the description. That is interesting. Kind of sweet, light bitter, with a light hop profile, but mostly just muted. Not bad, though. Itís English-style all around, and a solid example of that kind of pale ale.

Bottled 21/12/12. A brown beer which poured headless. Sweet and fruity. Earthy with a slight tang of tartness. Some chocolate malt notes but itís the sweetness which dominates.
