Very Moreish, toned down sweet tones waiting for the bitterness to kick in but doesnt, smells like proper beer, no chemical smell, great beer!

ndburns (68) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2016
500ml bottle from Asda. Quite a brown amber with a small head. Taste is mostly malt and a little metallic. Ok, but no more than that.

jjsint (2043) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2016
500ml bottle from Waitrose, consumed at home. Honey brown, without a lot of obvious carbonation. Crystal malt, orange peel; weirdly a hint of whisky on the nose. Taste is sweet and sticky, and fairly sickly, crystal malt. A bit of soft bitterness on the finish. Very average. I actually think the cask version can be quite good (ducks for cover), but the pasteurisation deadens it somehow. And it was so, so much better pre-Coors...

AntonyWilson (68) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 15, 2016
500ml Bottle: Appearance: Pours a clear amber with minimal off-white head that persists. Lacing. Aroma: Bready, fruity, slight maltiness. Taste: Medium bitterness, caramel, fruity, bready. Quite sweet. Mouthfeel: Medium body, low carbonation, Slightly astringent and a little thin. Overall: Not as exceptional as the label suggests but not bad.

Lore (1935) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 7, 2016
clear amber colour, medium sized creamy, slightly yellowish-beige-ish off white head; aroma of grains, metallic and some florl notes as well as hints of nuts - or it is only because of the peanuts I am eating now together with this :-); taste of malty sweetness, some toasted and spicy notes, moderate hoppy bitterness and some sourness; not really good bitter

CroccyLc (10) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Smells a bit malty. Tastes really weak and watery with light malt sweetness. Very carbonated. I don’t really have anything positive to say about this beer because it tastes like crap to be honest. I’ve learned to avoid beers bottled in clear glass they always seem to taste the worst.

Final flavor: light bitter sweet; average duration. Palate: light medium body, lively carbonation, metallic finish, watery texture. Malty background. 20s

nephirem (121) - CROATIA - FEB 9, 2016
Pours a clear amber color with small, short lasting white head. Smell is kinda weak, mostly malts and a bit caramel. Thin to medium body with high carbonation. Weak and watery. Faint taste of malts and caramel. Slightly roasted. Overall, for something that says "exceptional ale" on label, it comes out quite thin, watery and incredibly empty. Waste of time and money. Avoid.
