SarkyNorthener (1411) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle. Very pale amber. Residual head. Very little aroma. Taste is quite bitter with its hops. Can just about detect some honey. The taste is a little too astringent. A below par beer.

Osprey87 (1154) - London via, WALES - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle BB Jun 2014. Yellow, mostly still with a few bubbles, scummy layer of bubbles on top. Smell - lager with a hint of honey. Body - medium with medium to low carbonation. Taste - malty......urm, Iím struggling to think of anything else to say about this one. Itís certainly yellow and mellow. A bit insipid.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle, from Home Bargains, Scunthorpe. Gold, fluffy and sustained white head and good condition. Gentle sweet grain and a touch of floral honey in the nose, gently hop bitter and slightly spicy in the mouth with some sweet vanilla notes, finish is peppery and becomes quite bitter at the end.

mike_77 (2714) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2013
Hazy blond colour. Light honey in the aroma. The flavour has some sweetness in the foreground and a touch of bitterness in the finish. Smooth, creamy. No carbonation.

DruncanVeasey (6936) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2013
The rancid B&M version. Acrid butter on wholemeal crackers aroma. Heavily buttered wicker and wholemeal flavour with throat sweet, saline and old encrusted honey suggestions. Buttery bee shit sweetness. Slightly vile rendition of the cask version, itself hardly classic Sadlerís.

gegwilson (612) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle from B&M Stockton. Golden with fading white head. Aroma is hoppy with a faint hoppy edge. No strong flavours with the honey in the background. Hops are hardly prominent either. light, refreshing and bland.

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle from the Windsor Castle in Lye. Clear gold with thin white head. Aroma of some honey. Flavour of honey and citrus in mouth. Bit carbonated. Tasty if a little lacking in mouthfeel.
