mt_hall (174) - Hertfordshire, - JAN 25, 2013
Bottled. A copper coloured bitter with a decent, lasting white head and lively carbonation. Hops, pine resin and a slight sweetness on the nose. Hops and pine dominate the palate too, with a touch of malt in the middle then a dry finish. Pretty good.

Clear copper. Malty sweetish aroma. Low carbons. Sweet maltyness, some honey, mildly bitter, metallic. Quite rich but shy.

PlutonowyMan (220) - POLAND - OCT 7, 2015
Kolor: bursztynowy, klarowny. Piana: bia?a, drobno p?cherzykowa, niestety bardzo szybko redukuje si? do cienkiej warstewki. W aromacie delikatne nuty cytryn, ?liwek a obok nieco karmelu i toffi. Smak: bardzo ubogo, tylko toffi, no i mo?e gdzie? na samym dnie, bardzo delikatnie cytryna. Goryczka: nieznaczna, miekka, tylko na finiszu. Wysycenie: wysokie, szczypie w j?zyk. Alkohol: schowany.

0.5 l clear bottle from local supermarket as Master Brew The Original Kentish Ale. Colour is dark amber, OK head. Very strong flavour of malts for your mouth and nose. There are also some bitter hops. Quite OK.

StueyD (1543) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
A mid copper coloured beer with a weak white head. A light fruity hop aroma, zesty citrus and peach, with a background of dusty pale malt. Dry mouthfeel. A mild bitter taste, pithy citrus fruit, and a hint of peach, then a dry, biscuity pale malt flavour that tempers the hoppiness. The finish is bitter and hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

panzerwolf (225) - FINLAND - JAN 22, 2015
Pours clear amber. Taste has malts and hops and wood, with a bit of fruits. A very brief bitter finish. It didn’t really make me decide one way or another. Ok beer, but wouldn’t go out of my way to procure it again.

Bottle, many thanks Roei, small stable bubbly head, clear dark orange to light brown colour, aroma of hay and caramel with some herbs and metalic hints, flavour caramel, grains, some hay and nuts with something metalic in the back, pleasant empathic medium bitterness, lively carbonation. Nice nad easy to drink, like a bitter should be.

christhoel (286) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2014
floral, amber, clear, minimal head, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, to be honest this beer isnt much to shout about just a average beer
