RichardGretton (4437) - Leicestershire, - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle. Amber beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is standardly bitter with some yeastyness. The flavour is bitter with some toffee and roastedness and a fairly yeasty finish. Overall a reasonable but nonetheless standard bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ManVsBeer (5971) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle from Home Bargains. Slightly deeper amber colour with a very thin head. Thereís a fair mix of tastes and flavours here - certainly some caramel and malt, but thereís some fruit here to which is a touch stewed. Quite light and easy drinking.

On Cask at Charles Dickens Pub. Pours a clear dark amber with lasting white head and lace. Slight malty aromas. Medium body, mellow maltiness with slightly sweet flavor balance, nice woody character, mellow, dry hop finish. A classic nitter?
