Ernest (6163) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, orange), with a note of metal, hint of diacetyl. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. Quite metallic in the nose, which is unfortunate since the hop scent is pleasant. Not as metallic in the mouth, though, and otherwise ok.

Cornfield (5460) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Nice pour, a clear amber/bronze with a creamy white head and solid lacing. The aroma was grainy, toasty, and lightly sweet. It had a grainy, cracker-like flavor with dry herbs, a touch of earth, and a mild bitterness. Nice. I wish this was more readily available in this area... and at a lower price.

Douberd (2098) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2014
500 ml bottle at home, into a Guinness pint, about a yer old, ABV 4.1% Hazy body deep red to orange copper in colour. Two fingers of slighty off-white head, good retention. Medium lacing on the glass. Sweet aroma of malts along with dark and red fruits, cookies. Quite sweet and malty taste, marmalade, red fruits, stale hops, but with a good bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. Overall still a good one although past its prime, would like to try a fresher sample.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Really quite clean and fresh with a crisp, bitter flavour. The pour is sparkling and bright gold with a thick puffy white head. Notes of grass, caramel, bread, light citrus and a pinch of pepper in the aroma. A very mild and plain flavour profile with a clean, crisp and refreshing profile. Overall nothing too exciting but well done.

RyanE (143) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2014
Copper brown pour with flecks of ruby. Frothy head clings to the glass. Malt, fresh bread on the nose. Well balanced and somewhat fruity, leading to a slight toasted malt flavor. Some bitterness on the finish.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Aroma - the aroma is of caramel, bread, and toast. Very pleasant. Appearance -the body color is a reddish amber with a thin white head that quickly thins out to a nice little sliver. Taste - really pleasant taste a light sweetness and light bitterness that are like electrons floating around a nice nucleus of malt richness. Palate - the body is medium, the texture thick, the carbonation is average, and the finish leaves a nice long toasted malt and mild sweetness I’m really becoming an English bitter fan. Just plain enjoyable sessions. I could drink this over and over.
