"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."

berkshirejohn (4677) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2008
50cl bottle from Morrisons. Deep gold with a white head; leafy hop aroma; strong dry and grassy hop flavour, with more dry hops on the finish. If you like hoppy beers, this is a must.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
This dark amber beer has a nice head and the aroma has hints of malt and hops. I also find roasted malt and hops in the flavour and there is a nice bitterness from the beginning, and it develops in the finish, where it becomes both dry and bitter. Actually so dry, that I have to have another sip :))

OStreetBrewery (120) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 31, 2007
Pours a deep amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma features fruity tangy hops, with a touch of stewed malt and an oxidative character. ON the palate there is sweet malt, more stewed malt and oxidised hop leading to a firm but slightly harsh bitterness. Past its best.

sm89walt (1780) - 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 (2471) - 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)
