Bottle, @Half Pint Gentleman’s place, 25/03/2016. Golden appearance. Straw yellow too. White lacing. Typical British leaf hop aroma. Spices and herbs. A little lemony and sweaty but generally clean and descent enough. No real defects.

Bottle. Golden beer with a good strong head. The aroma is lightly hopped with yeastiness. The flavour is dry and hopped with quite heavy bitterness and then yeastiness in the background. Overall a reasonable pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jasonbenali (93) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2015
Pours clear with an amber yellow with a thin head and mild carbonation. Aroma has promise with lemon, orange, tangerine, floral, hint of biscuit, but doesn’t quite deliver on the flavour, which is a little harsh possibly down to the Target hops in there. Decent length finish with some bitterness, yet also soapiness. Thin and lacking body. Not bad and slipped down nicely, but wanted more malt and/or hop flavours coming through.

MustangMarkF (239) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
500ml Bottle. It pours a slightly cloudy burnt orange with a quickly disappearing white head. Its aroma is malty and orange. Its taste is light citrus at first but this soon gives way to a burnt caramel and toffee taste. It has quite a bitter finish with a long aftertaste. Better than average but somehow not as good as I was hoping for.
