Bottled. Golden colour, small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, fruits, earth and some herbs. Flavour is floral, hoppy, mild maltyness along with some slight herbal notes. Has the elements, but is actually quite boring.

harrisoni (13198) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2011
500ml bottle from the Sainsburys beer competition 2011. Clear mid gold with lasting thin beige head. Earthy blackcurrant aroma. Very earthy. I mean itís a toffeeish earthy bitter. Fine, but yousers, arenít we past this now? Anyway itís a bitter.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2011
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Part of the Sainsburys World Series. Pours clear gold with a small, white foam head. Weak aroma, subtle doughy malts. Medium sweet flavor with a kind of odd character. Like honey and corn or something. Or perhaps the unholy marriage of mint and lemon? Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild sweet finish, some bread, weird fruit, dough, faint crispy grass. OK.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2011
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. Light, slightly hoppy, floral beer, bittersweet with a peachy background. Reasonably refreshing, but remains thin an the palate. Itís ok though.

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2012
Bottled 05/05/12. An amber coloured beer which pours with no head. Sweet toffee and leafy hops in the nose. Similar in the mouth. Some orangey hop notes too. A standard English bitter which is OK at what it does.
