JohnRMurdoch (3244) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle from Peckhamís Rye. Rich medium brown colour with a massive foamy head. Strong resin malt aroma. Big oaty malty flavour. Quite fizzy & sharp. Nice bottle but not much else to like about this one.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - APR 15, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear and copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is weak with malt and hops with grass and earthy notes. The flavor follows the nose closely. The palate is dry. Overall an average beer.

flying_pig (933) - SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle (330ml) - Quite like a lot of English bitters with hints of toffee & some malts on the nose. Dark fruits & a pleasant berry smell along with some caramel can also be detected. Dark Copper with a nice, dark white head that settles to a half centimeter of lacing around the top of the glass. Quite dark but clear with no bubbles. Rather like the smell with dark summer fruits such as berries being the main flavour detected. It mirrors the smell with toffee & hints of caramel. There is a quite bitter aftertaste. Quite light on the palate with lots of carbonation &quite a bit of fizz on the tongue as it is drank. I found this one just a little too watery although it was very easy to drink. I doubt I would purchase this beer again although wouldnít rule out drinking it again, itís just that there is a lot of much better bitters out there. - - - /

500 ml bottle. Pours a clear ruby color with a medium white head. The aroma is caramel and light fruit, sweet malty. A easygoing rich caramel backbone aside the more fruity almost yeasty presences. Thin and very watery. Easy to drink. Decent. Earthy grains as well.

shrubber85 (7553) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Bottle. Buttery toffee malt aroma with a hint of hops. Clear chestnut color with moderate head. Slight sweet butter toffee malt and lightly bitter grass hops. Nice body. Pretty good.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2010
Thought this was dead, but actually itís a bit of a gusher; still chestnut with a slimming beige collar. All attractive things on the nose; sensible fragrant hop, leafiness, malt loaf, blackcurrant dripped on cinder toffee. Sinks smooth with a wash of chalk; that slippery mineral Scottish feel with a dab of brine, red fruit undercurrents, fresh biscuity malt like digestives. Enjoyable on all fronts really: underrated.

Kavu (2192) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2010
Pours coca cola brown with a light head. Some sweet malts in the aroma and the flavor. No hops at all. Not a bad beer as itself but it says itís an IPA and itís a very bad IPA.

madmitch76 (14744) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
22nd June 2008. Loses itís identity with a mild uninteresting malty start followed by flimsy watery hops. Not well joined up at all.

OleR (4800) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2009
0.5 L bottle from The Whisky Shop, Edinburgh. Fingerthick, lightly tanned cream head. Brilliant, nut-brown body. Dry aroma of nutty, light peppery, dark malts. Slight sweet, caramelly, toasted and light peppery malt flavor. A faint fruitiness and some sour notes. Very mildly hopped. Mid-bodied with a powdery mouthfeel. Malty-bitter, mild spicy finish. A decent and straightforward bitter.
