maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Bottled 14/08/13. An amber coloured beer with a whitish head. Biscuity malts in the nose. Bready and a little boozy sweet in the mouth. Low hopping. Some cereal. It’s fine but a bit old fashioned and boring.

Yellow/orange with thin fizzy diminishing off-white head. Smells of light malt with a fruity centre, wood and some roast. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Sweet taste of butter and malt with a bitter hoppy grass yet fruity finish. Bitterness remains afterwards

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 7, 2012
[500ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Brilliantly clear orange pour, no real head - pretty flat. Sweet caramel on the aroma. Faint, mildly caramel malt finish. Faint is a good word for this one, although it’s certainly drinkable. Unfortunately overshadowed by some of the other beers we sampled previously [22042012]
