Not sure why there is so much hype around this guy. It is a smooth and tasty English bitter with some fruity notes and a nice crispy dry finish, but it really doesn’t do much to stand out from countless others similar to it. I’d be interested to try it on cask, but the bottle was a bit of a let down considering how it’s such a hot item nowadays.

Aroma: Rich malty, light hops, dark fruit, Appearance:Clear copper, small off-white head. Taste: Medium bitterness, slight malt sweetness, light fruitiness, medium dry finish Palate: Medium low carbonation, light body. Overall: A nice aroma, good taste, but I expected a bit more flavour. But I will happily drink a few. 500 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre!

Cuso (5070) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. Orange color with medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel, malt. Taste, caramel malt, some fruits, light hoppy bitterness in finish. Too much on sweet side for me. Cask version is better.

Grzesiek79 (3304) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 24, 2013
Bitter sredniej klasy. Mala pianka, prawie zadna, ale moze to bylo celem. Kolor miedziany dosc ciemnawy. Aromat znikomy. W smaku chmielny posmak z lekka nuta toffi i karmelu. Finisz lekko wytrawny

stevoj (2325) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 5, 2013
perhaps this better as a cask ale. Oveall seems flat and unlively, flavor is OK but rather bland. Almost no head to speak of. Mouthfeel is slick with a little lingering bitterness. Just average.

Nilz (419) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 26, 2013
A dark amber with minimal head. Aroma malt and some molasses. Taste of a malty sweetness and a balanced bitterness. Not unlike Hobgoblin’s Ruby Ale and that’s fairly pleasant.

shoestring (280) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - MAY 23, 2013
Yup see what everyone means about poor head retention. I got the malts and caramel. Went down nice though. Would have again and need to try draught as they have at my caravan park.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a clear chesnut amber with pretty much no head. Not much of an aroma but caramel and apples come through. Taste is dominated by sweetness and acidity, there’s a fairly good base of malt and caramel which saves it from being a complete waste of money. Not good.
