An amber beer with a special Belgian malt and a fruity mix of American and European hops. Very addictive, and our flagship beer.

Intense grain and bread malts, caramel, biscuit, light straw. Clear amber, small, creamy, white head. Light sweet. Caramel, bread and grain malts. Decent Amber Ale, nothing too exciting though. Cask at The Bath Brew House, Bath.

gegwilson (3130) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2016
Cask in the Kite. Pours amber with a thin off white head. No aroma. Thin toasty malt flavour with a touch of stewed fruit. Watery. Poor.

ManVsBeer (8490) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2015
Cask @ Drink? Hebden Bridge. Dark amber-brown with a small creamy head. Malty berry-seeet in its nose, its much less stated in this respect in taste, but still crisp and smooth tasting.

MarkoNm (2298) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 17, 2015
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a small and quickly dissapearing off-white head. Malty aroma, mild caramel and biscuity notes, some resin also. Taste is sweet and biscuity, mild bitterness in the finish. Herbal/metallic feel in the aftertaste. A bit watery, but not bad.

rlgk (17912) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2015
Cask at Market Porter, London. Clear golden/amber beer with a quite nice lasting beige head. Malty bready aroma, grapes, earthy notes, a bit papery. Malty caramel flavor, grassy, some bitter hops. A bit flat.

Mr_Pink_152 (3568) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2015
On tap at the Bath Brew House, Bath, not the best XT beer I have had. Cloudy amber colour with no head. aroma is very week fruit, the taste has a slight bitter finish, but overall the beer is a touch watery.

johndoughty (4949) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle. My first from this brewery.Bronze with a small head.Slightly spicy with some fruitiness but stops short of being too complex. A bit more body would have increased the impact but it was still a pleasant beer.

Beese (2561) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Cask at The Rising Sun, Berkhamsted on 26 July 2012. Poured a clear amber, with an off white head. Aroma was nutty and malt heavy, with some straw. Caramel and chewy grain flavours, with some light grassy hop. Finish was biscuit, toffee and hop resin.

Vladivostok (432) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Dark-ish amber with a sweet malty nose. There’s some biscuit there, a little smokiness which adds up to a quite distinctive beer. Finish is long and bitter. Reminds me somewhat of Purity’s Mad Goose.

jjsint (2258) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2014
Cask at the Elm Tree, Cambridge. Copper/amber, clear with not so much head. Chestnut, spruce, tangerine and gingerbread in the nose. Bittersweet refreshing taste with a sweet gingersnap finish and aftertaste. Weak palette is a letdown. Decent.
