Bit weak though a decent pale ale I’d prefer a bit stronger.sort of stale aftertaste.

Ramenée d’un voyage au R.U. Nez intéressant, beau col de mousse généreuse et aérée. Un peu trop amère à mon goût

Pours amber with moderate head. Taste is well balanced hops with a distinct malt character. Not as sweet as some beers with the same malt flavors, which is a plus.

Zuko (16) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle given to me, so might be a bit old. Poured light copper with a medium white head, translucent. Wasn’t getting much of a scent, just a bit of malt. Tasting that same roasted malt with maybe a bit of fruitiness? Clean and crisp with a light bitterness.

Poured into a Landlord pint glass (all the years of nicking glasses from pubs has finally paid off...). This captures the basic flavor and aroma of the cask version and sends it around the world without much degradation. The taste is dominated by the spicy/earthy flavor of the Styrian Golding hops, which gives it that slight edge over most other bitters.

mezr (103) - California, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Poured from a bottle into an English pint. The color is a stunning, clear copper with a tight, tan head that nicely laces the glass. Malty aroma of caramel, medium body and average carbonation. Moderately bitter with a lingering finish. Very satisfying.

alexmate (74) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2016
Appearance: Amber\copper colour with good lacing. Nose: some creamy vomit notes, caramel, malt and yeast. Taste: semi-sweet with some caramel, yeast, hops, roasted malt and a bit of bitterness on the aftertaste. Fairly mediocre, but a good session ale and often readily available on draught. Price Paid: around £2.

Bottle. Clear golden/amber body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Thin white head. Good lacing. Aroma of earth, biscuit, wax and dried leaves. Flavour of lightly roasted malt, grass and biscuit. Thin to medium body with a light, oily texture. Well balanced and easy to drink.

Light but attractive hop aroma . Attractive amber colour and a good robust foam . Taste is clean with a nice amount of bitterness and hoppiness , the malt element is equally clean but not as layered as I had hoped for (reading the label) Still, at just over 4% ABV its very pleasant -would love to try the cask!
