500ml Bottle. It pours a medium amber capped with a very thin head that dispels into a thin ring of lacing. Its aroma is citrus, malts and toffee. The taste follows the same lines as the smell with a slightly dry bitter finish. Overall not a bad pint and I would have again.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2015 Totally English, reminding me of Newcastle. Bitter and thirst-quenching. Heavy beer... Heavy metal! Filling. Great with food! —Mmmm Beer! And as I lay there gazing at the sky My body’s numb and my throat is dry And as I lay forgotten and alone Without a tear I draw my parting groan.

tomer (1976) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - APR 18, 2015
Draught as "Robinson Iron Maiden", at Sherlock holmes pub in Bialystok, small creamy head, clear light copper color, strong rubbery stinky aroma, with some malt coming through as the beer warms up, maybe the lines were not clean, citrusy fruity flavor with a biscuity maltiness and some butteriness in the end, light to medium bitterness. Smooth and easy to drink with a nice flavor, but whats that smell?

Can. Pours good deep copper. Off white head with good retention. Nose is very nice- a burst of citrusy UK hops and mild herbal notes. Flavor is just ok - malts have some toast flavors, but body tends towards an unremarkable generic and one-dimensional cereal-like malt flavors. Finish is decent with a nice touch of citrus and pine hop flavor to clean the palate.

onceblind (5149) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2015
Hazy dark copper with a fast fading white fizzy head. Nose full of clover honey and toasted English muffin with a side of light tea. Medium body with lots of honey and marmalade-on-toast, a touch of British tea, some light toasty nutty malt. A very British beer throughout. Medium bodied and nothing really standout. Basic bitter.

seritomi (335) - HUNGARY - APR 4, 2015
Sötét sárga. Karamell banánillat. Vékony test szénsavas, savanykás. Közepes keserűség. Egész jó komlós utóízzel. A banda sokkal jobb a saját stílusában. :)

A nice British ale -- hoppier than the standard bitter, but very quaffable. Up the Irons!
