ComradeK (1145) - Sydney, - DEC 30, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a clear copper amber, with a small off-white head, which does not last very well, but leaves reasonable lace. The aromas has some candied fruit and toffee notes and faint floral hops. Floral hops up front lead into some plum and candied fruit notes. Toffee comes in towards the finish. A sweeter-style bitter, but nevertheless a very satisfying beer at the end of a very long day.

AshtonMcCobb (5372) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2015
Bottle from Cheers in Mumbles. Appearance - amber and cloudy with a nicely proportioned head. Nose - a little dried orange but mostly grainy. Taste - very grainy indeed. Looking for fruit and hops but not finding it. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - hard work.

alexsdad06 (9121) - Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma was mainly, caramel, some nutty character and fruity hops. The flavor opens with light toasted malts, caramel and fruit. A slight cardboard note, mild bitterness soon follows. This is just ok. Medium bodied, smooth and not to be revisited.
