LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - MAR 14, 2011
Funestissimo odoraccio, ma poi miracolosamente è una buona bitter, anche meno ossidata del solito ridgeway bottigliamento

Warning! Early amateur rating! A pretty big standard bitter with very little character and a bitterish finish. Dissapointing and dull.

berkshirejohn (4526) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2011

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Clear golden orange. Frothy white head. Enticingly fruity aroma, peach, apricot. Fruity apricot is in the flavor and aftertaste also. Slightly prickly. Quite nice, but their bitter blows this out of the water.
