"This rich amber beer is brewed with only the finest English ingredients. A prominent hop aroma and bitterness throughout is finely balanced with a full malt flavour, leading to a dry bitter finish."

sm89walt (1716) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2007
50cl bottle. This is a clear amber beer with a small white foamy head. The beer’s aroma is quite malty rather than hoppy; a combination of buttery caramel and roasted notes. The flavour is again quite sweet with a light body. Slight bittersweet finish rounds this beer off.

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2007
Ruddy, deepest amber and very bright is the body, infused with little more than a fine bubble here and a fine bubble there. Head, a big old, loose, fluffy, off-white mess that drabs wildly down the pint. Sweet, buttery, Anzac biscuit, bold toasted malts and tangy, rose petal like hops greet the olfactories. Quite sweet, nutty and floral on the palate. A little peanut-brittle fresh baked from Darrell Lea, perhaps! Again the toasted malts are predominant, a little plum sauce in there as some caramel and general woodiness to balance. Shows good length, only mildly bitter on the swallow with a floral, earthy hop finish that dries out somewhat. Body is a bit lean, soft. Good English aroma and flavour on display here. Goes down with real ease, good balance of malt and hops, Not too shabby to be honest!!! (50cL, 28/11/07, The Beer Store Morley)

omhper (18966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2007
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Clear nut brown, rich head. Papery aroma. Sweet and lightly roasty with light-medium body and somewhat mellow mouthfeel. Nutty with restrained piney hops, lightly syrupy. Short finish with a faint whiff of resiny bitterness.

pivnizub (8585) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 16, 2007
Bottle: Clear, amber colored, small, quite stable off-white head; fruity-malty nose with a big touch of herbal hops; mild to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied; delicate sweetish-malty finish with a hoppy touch in the aftertaste. Not a real bomber...........

garthicus (2594) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 9, 2007
Fine - no real complaints, uninspiring, pours flat and brown, very faint aroma of malt, blandish flavour, not offensive in any way, just plain

[BOTTLED 04/04/07] I enjoyed this far more from the cask than I did in a bottle. Still a pleasent ale but didn’t have anything special about it. Mediocre overall. Definatly recommend it on cask appose to the bottle.
