Refreshingly hoppy aroma. Taste is like a traditional best bitter, no more, no less. Thin palate, medium carbo’. Ok beer.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle at the Doric Arms, Edinburgh on 16 May. Poured a hazy amber, with a thin, off-white head. Nutty aroma, lots of malts and some orange peal. Initial flavours of brown sugar, toast and dried fruit. Finish was slightly spicy, with some lingering grassy bitterness and chewy grain.

peponi (463) - POLAND - APR 26, 2014
Aroma: dark malts, citrus notes (grapefruit), herbs. Appearance: nice clear amber color, lasting white head. Taste: nice medium bitterness (pine and resin), dark malts, quite dry and slightly watery, easy drinking. Palate: medium body and high carbonation, nice bitter finish. Overall: Very good red ale with a nice hint of American hops. Well-balanced and highly drinkable.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2014
(bottle) Hazy, reddish brown colour with a medium-sized and tanned foamy head. Toast-malty, bready and delicately nutty malty aroma with caramel and fruity and slightly spicy hoppy notes. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, quite light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slim but nevertheless complex toasty malt-character, backed by mildly citric and delicately resiny hops; sweet malt-accented and slightly bitter finish with an average length. Okay, just a tad too slim. 13.II.14

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle. Caramel, citrus, strawberries and a hint of toffee and tea in the aroma. Light sweet light bitter with a tea-and-fruit finish, slightly earthy. Very nice aroma but overall it misses something to make it stand out.
