"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."

davegore (222) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2006
chosen by the wife is adsa because she liked the bottle (thanks sarah), dark bitter with a not too long lasting frothy head, very dry initially with some floral flavours and quite a mouthfilling finish, hoppy at the end too, didn’t expect too much but was quite surprised

StueyD (1066) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2006
A dark amber, brown beer with a frothy, weak, white head. The nose is initially sweet and malty, but this is followed by a floral hoppiness. The taste is again sweet, smooth and malty to begin with, then a dry, fruity hoppiness comes through to balance the flavour. The aftertaste is dry. (Bottle - Morrisons).

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2006
Bottle. Some hops on the nose but mostly malty caramel. Slightly sweet with just enough bitterness to balance but unfortunately slight boiled sweet flavours creep in which detracts from what otherwise seemed to be quite a tasty if sweet beer.

Stew41 (1662) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2006
Nice thick creamy head head with excellent thick lacing. Darkish caramel brown. Mild nose, faint malts, but not much happening. More interest in the palate, quite balanced in that neither malt or hops seems to dominate, but a fraction on the subdued side. Sweeter, slightly chocolate like malts kick in late. Finish is mundane, almost lager like. Interestingly this example is not brewed in the UK but rather France.

Lunkie (1363) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2006

johninmelb (1117) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2006
Sweet yeasty nose, weak white head. Soft mouthfeel with a somewhat uninspired finish. Malty and occasionally tasty but overall not too exciting.

vanvenlo (1153) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2006
14 Dec 05 - Light pleasant malt hop aroma. Clear medium brown colour, ordinary head but Ok lacing. Sweet hoppy malt flavour. Bitter palate and a bit thin. Just another ordinary English beer.
