UPDATED: JAN 16, 2016 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.rerated jan 2016..... Better head and caramel in mouth. Improved rating. Easily sunk

TavernWench (15) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2016
Aroma very malty, caramel and bready. Also a bit of fizz/tinnyness to it. The appearance is a fairly nice amber bitter. Gentle carbonation, very thin off-white head which fizzles out quickly even when doing a sharp pour. The taste is also malty. Lots of bread and some caramel notes. Slightly floral/herbal in taste as well. Very thin-bodied, tastes almost watered down. The carbonation doesn’t bounce off the tongue, in fact it feels a little flat. There is barely any finish at all; very faint taste of English hops at the back end.

500 ml bottle from the corner Tesco, 6/3/16. Was basically the only thing there I hadn’t ticked. Tickers gotta tick. Caramel color, fizzy off white head. Doughy malts and spice. Okay flavor. Finishes with a decent bitterness. Fizzy. Thin. Okay.

heavy (2649) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 2, 2016
Dec. ’15. A 0.5 l bottle from a local Tommy supermarket. It poured a clear brown body with tiny or no head. Weak toast, brown sugar and caramel aroma. Lightly bitter flavor, watered down caramel and biscuit notes, while coarse carbonation helped the bitterness to show up actually. Very thin in body with mineral water mouthfeel - empty and coarse. What is this? Just like the case with some well rated Christmas beers that were bland and plainly bad, do they export only crappy batches here or everybody else is crazy?

I_LUV_BEER (140) - - MAY 29, 2016
Served in a snifter from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a thin off-white fast diminishing head. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, bread and red fruits. Taste is caramel, roasted malts, red fruits with a smooth subtle bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very smooth and extremely balanced amber ale, would be great as a session ale.

BeerNinjaUK (213) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle at family gathering (not my first!). Pours brown amber with thin head. Aroma predominately malty with some sweet caramel. Pretty bland, especially compared to the great deep salty notes that I remember from a cask pint in Cornwall the first time I tried this many years ago.

MarkoNm (2254) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 7, 2016
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a minimal and non-lasting white head. Mild biscuity aroma with a bit of caramel presence. Sweet with caramel notes, finishes with decent bittery feel. Light. Ok.
