Gorbalev (2906) - Ontario, - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle, LCBO gift pack 2012. Dark orange pour, creamy white head. Pleasant earthy hops in decent aroma. tase - classic English bitter taste - fruity hops over medium malt base, sort of metallic hops in finish. Pleasant brew that likely would be much better served fresh than in pasteurized bottles across the pond.

stantheman (616) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
A 50 cl bottle from BC Liquor stores. An orange amber beer with medium pale yellow head. Faintly sweet on the nose. Faint hop note, medium bland malt. Sweet malted finish. Aperfectly bland and inoffensive pale ale. Style says "bitter", but not much bitter going on here. 2.8.

Gary (1324) - Brentford, London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2014
Bottled. Very malty caramelly, earthy hops, dried fruit notes like apricot and raisin. Unfortunately this beer suffers from. a Dusty yeast character that makes this pretty UN-chill

calm_dreamer (156) - GREECE - FEB 18, 2014
Another awesome label by Wychwood. Pours an amber orange pale body with a very thin layer of soapy foam on top. Smells like caramel, malt, flowers, some hops. The taste has some caramel and some malt but no bitterness or aftertaste. Good carbonation. It’s all it says, kill the thirst.

Bottle 50cl, a amber beer with medium head. Aroma is on uk hops with honey and grass and toasted malt touch, watery body with caramel hints, light red fruits, bit boring;
