Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2016
Cask at Three Johns. It pours clear golden - amber with a small white head. The aroma is toasty grain, wood, earth, porridge and bread. The taste is bitter - sweet, earthy, white bread, sweet fruity vibe, straw, white sugar, soap and mild astringency with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body and low carbonation. Fair.

harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2016
3.9% cask handpull at The Ship & Mitre Liverpool. Clear dark gold lasting white head. Malty session bitter. A little sweaty on the aroma. Some malt no much hop. Ok. If a bit bland.

cluricaume (6) - FRANCE - MAR 30, 2016 does not count
Session bitter with a light bitter aftertaste. Paired nicely with a risotto. Nice malty taste. Little head. Pours a light golden colour. Too little depth and complexity for my liking. Good for a hot day I’d imagine.

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2016
500ml bottle at home on 23rd Feb 2016. Poured slowly into an Abbot Ale badged glass tankard. Light amber/golden body, clear and clean: on top a full white head. Decent enough blend with neither the malts or hop dominating the nose or taste: some light fruitiness flavour wise and a mild bitter finish.

MarcinG (483) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2015
Zaskakujaco dobre piwo o bursztynowym kolorze i niskiej bialej pianie. Wyrazna goryczka kontrastuje ze slodkawym posmakiem owocow i karmelu.

johndoughty (5006) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2015
Bottle. Bronze and very clear. Slightly spicy with some bitterness. Plenty of body considering its relatively low strength.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Amber coloured with a spicy citrus and peppery hop flavour, burnt toffee notes followed by grapefruit on the finish. Very good considering its low ABV.
