BlackHaddock (5747) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Live rate on 16th June 2015 while cooking a minced beef chilli after cutting the lawns and walking the dog: this is my reward to myself. Tangerine orange body, not quite fully clear when poured into my Abbot Ale glass tankard. The head is deep and full, off-white blanket of uneven foam which appears to be lasting. Malt lead in both the aroma and taste, semi-sweet initially with toffee and caramel hints, grapefruit flavour mid-sip, with a dry hoppy finish that seems to have a peppery and metallic twang to it. All good apart from the finish: what a shame. Bought from B&M Bargains, so cost cock all but my score is lower because of that metallic like feel in the finish.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle from B&M. Dry and harsh in the old school Northern fashion; the bitterness of hop without aromatic complications or owt fancy; toffee hints, background dried fruit and creamy fig attempts smashed by bitterness. Back of tongue bitter linger. Metallic aroma with more pleasing fudge as it warms. Honey amber with a loose and transient foam. Not loveable.

BeerViking (3843) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Bottle from B&M, amber-brown with a medium head, peppery hops and a little toffee malt on the nose. Dry and lightly toasty, with a firm hoppy and burnt bitterness.

christhoel (286) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
clear amber with a fruity hop aroma. The taste is similar - apple, citrus and hop flavours swirl together on a smooth palate and a long bitter finish gives you time to enjoy them. A very nice bitter.

zacgillbanks (4065) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2015
Bottles from b&m, Team Valley, Gateshead and York Beer & Wine. Golden coloured with burnt toffee and orange marmalade flavours followed by a bitter grapefruit finish.

Nice ale, good bitterness, maybe a bit of nuttiness coming through from the malts.

redders1974 (749) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle with 10p going to abf soldiers charity which is a nice touch pours well with small lasting head tastes like a classic bitter should and stronger than the 4.7 abv would suggest a pleasant pint all round

Towey1989 (1505) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of slight caramel, orange, biscuit plus some peppery and grassy hops. Taste of orange, apple, brown sugar, biscuity malt and bitter, peppery hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, hoppy bitterness in the finish. Good mix of flavours, ok.
