Leighton (13827) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear, light amber with a bubbly head.Pine and citrus hop nose, with some caramel malts. Nice and sweet, malty with caramel and perhaps hints of honey. The bitterness is quite citrusy. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Fairly well balanced finish with more caramel and honey sweetness, then some citrus hops with light stickiness. Really good.

Draught at Atlantic House Hotel, Polzeath - 5/7/10. Thin head. Sweet honey taste but not cloying. Some straw in the nose but the main aroma is honey unsurprisingly.

will1 (140) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2010
Bottled from Aldi. Quite lively carbonation, soft head and quite a syrupy palate. Quite fragrant and fruity for a bitter. Honey aroma and flavour quite apparent. Not too heavily hopped. Refreshing.

sm89walt (1799) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2010
Bottle. Poured a light, coppery amber with a small frothy, lasting white head with good lacing. Sweet notes of caramel and a delicate honey tone with a herbal hoppiness on the nose. Flavours of caramel/toffee, subtle honey notes and a pleasant, subdued hoppy bitterness. Great on the palate, light to medium carbonation and really quite crisp. Fantastic conditioning.
