UPDATED: NOV 2, 2010 Cask på Bree Louise, Euston 28 Sep 10. Rødbrun. Lavt stabilt svakt farget skum. Lovende fruktig aroma. Smaken er litt søt. Karamell. Forsiktig fruktig ettersmak med antydning til bitterhet.

reebtogi (5076) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
500ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and caramel with some pine. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness up front, finishing with a piney hop bitterness. Light bodied with some decent carbonation. Another decent English bitter, but nothing special.

50cl bottle, BBE 23.10.13. Poured copper color with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma is light spicy, yeasty with citrus, biscuit and bready notes. Flavor has the same spicyness, biscuit and caramel, light hoppyness. Light bodied, short light bitter finish. Refreshing, easy, decent bitter.

ClubGonzo (4903) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a deep coppery red-amber body with a small white head. Nose is caramel, red berries, hints of pepper and herbs. OK, but maybe a tad bit faint. Taste is caramel, grains, hints of burnt sugar and grass. Slightly watery palate but still OK and quite quaffable. Pretty smooth, without ever being impressive in any way.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Nice enough but too many similar beers mixed in with some great APAs and IPAs weaken the style perspective. Dark amber. Light head. Creamy caramel flavour.
