A lovely golden amber ale with subtle hints of toffee and caramel beautifully balanced by hoppy notes from the Fuggles, Goldings and Challenger hops. Delicious with Cumberland sausage and mash.

50ml brown glass bottle from Sainsbury - part of a 3 for Ł5 deal. Toffee, thin malt leading into a tannic finish. A dusting of hops. Drinkable, and without significant flaws, but not interesting or particularly tasty. OK.

500ml bottle. Aroma off caramel, grass and peppery hops. Light sweet , light bitter taste. A bit lacking in flavour. Not bad though.

Brown-amber colour with thin frothy head and medium carbonated. Nose is uninteresting but pleasant earthy hops. Taste is fizzy biscuit and hops with decent bitter finish. Dry palate, slightly watery. Reasonable if fairly bog standard beer.

ianwelby (1109) - SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2015
Lively, clear golden beer with a thick frothy head. Caramel and citrus zest scent. Flavour is a touch more hearty. Bitter hop but a bit of an earthy flavour there as well. Sadly it doesn’t follow this up with much so it ends up being quite dry and bitter and not entirely satisfying.
