Light golden brown, good white head that leaves lacing, smooth, clear but doesnt taste of a lot at least to me. My folks said it was good and they drink it often. Its natural and reliable possibly even organic. On tap at the gazebo Kingston.

agent_persik (383) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 9, 2014
Dark amber color, medium white creamy head. Aroma of caramel, malt, wood, herbs, nuts. Taste has similar notes, dry sweet with mildly bitter hoppy finish. Thin to medium body and soft carbonation. Nice bitter.

VRobertovich (27) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Clear amber beer, low carbonation, with a small, foamy, off-white head. Refreshingly light-medium bodied. Simple, yet pleasant caramel malts, with a touch of apple and herbs, and a mild, citrus hop. Simple, but well balanced, and very drinkable.

Handpumped @ Ye Olde Cheschire Cheese (Greater London). Slightly hazy amber with a medium mostly lasting beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of caramel, mineral presence and fruity notes, but there’s a little something off that I can’t recognize. Taste is also of caramel, fruity notes and mineral presence with a very light bitterness along with, again, something off that I can’t recognize. It’s really subtle, but it doesn’t take much to hinder low abv beer like a Bitter. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Easily drinkable and tasty, but far from the best Bitter because there’s a little something off and it’s also a tad bland.

Cask. Brown body, nice creamy head. Peculiar aroma. Flavour is cream and strawberries. (Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, 29.03.2014)

hohops (274) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Cask. Looks copper, with a one finger white head. It took a long time to settle. Aromas of bitter hops, toffee and caramel. Taste- quite thin-bodied, lots of bitterness, a fair amount of caramel going on.Solid bitter.

gegwilson (1026) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Cask in the Anchor Inn, Guisborough. Amber with a creamy white head. Served over cold, so hard to get too much flavour. Fairly fruity. Some biscuit notes on the finish. There’s a little sweetness too. Below par.
