500ml Bottle This is my long term favourite beer. It is just sublime. Its only fault is the sometimes spot on, sometimes so so carbonation from Skinners. If they could sort that out it would be perfect!! Aroma, toffee malt and hopes with a citrus zesty note. Appearance is dark amber with as mentioned an unreliable head. Get a good bottle and the head will be thick and creamy to the bottom of the glass. Taste is a malty biscuitness and hop developing into toffee and lastly a orange fruitiness and then a bitter finish.. theres something else in there that i cant quite make out too - theres a lot going on in there- but its all good!!!

Sweet hoppy aroma. Reddish tinged golden ale. Small off white head with some lacing. Full bodied and very nicely balanced. Appears mildly carbonated yet there’s plenty of fizz on the tongue. Medium to light fresh citrus/grapefruit hop taste with light malty base. Delicious and refreshing.

Grzesiek79 (4000) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 19, 2013
Zdecydowanie pyszne piwo. Bitter pierwszorzędny. Mocna i trwała piana, mętny płyn i to bardzo. Zapach silnie chmielowy. Bogaty i zróżnicowany. W smaku jest podobnie, a więc bardzo dobrze. Gożki smak, wytrawny finisz. Lekko gryzie na końcu języka. Goryczka dominuje. Bardzo wytrawny bitter. Na uwagę zasługuje także malownicza etykieta.

Pours a hazy amber colour with a very thin white ring around the glass. Aroma malty, strong(but not overpowering) caramel, fruity, and sweet. Flavour is caramel, mild bitterness, zesty citrus, and a light malty sweetness giving this a great balance. Low carbonation as expected per the style.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2005 Berry aroma - very subtle. Light tan color. Sweet berry and malt flavor with moderate hops bitterness. Pretty good - worth a try.

Nice dark golden colour. Sweet smelling. Some complexity to the taste/balance of malt and bitter of hops.

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2005
500 ml bottle. I have always liked this beer on draught so I was expecting to enjoy this in bottle and I wasn’t disappointed. Very nice aroma of hops and fruity malt with a good bitter feel in the mouth with an excellent balance of hops and malt on the finish. Cornish water gives it a slight mineral taste. Bitter finish makes you want to take another sip. A great session English bitter

Hazy orange color, creamy head. Aroma has a lot of hop notes, citrus peel and hints of malt. Flavor has intensive notes of limetten, citrus peel and light bitter hops in the end. Perfect thirst quentching.
