RichardGretton (4627) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2003
Good foamy head, deeply bitter aroma with roasted notes, and a well hopped flavour with slight hints of fruit. A very drinkable beer, a very good English bitter.

SarkyNorthener (3969) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. Golden amber colour with a foamy head. Aroma of citrus oranges is quite prominent. Taste is citrus, hops and a touch of grapefruit you find in American IPAs. Smooth on the palate, but a little too thin. This is a very good beer for a bottled version will have to try the cask which hopefully is even better.

beervis (243) - Taylor’s Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2008
Slightly harsh hop aroma, pour decent copper with creamy white suds. Flavour rich malt, bitter with a fruity flavour, not complex but refreshing. some piney hops. palate creamy with a hint of wood, finish bittersweet and lingering. An excellent bitter with plenty of bite.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2006 I have just tried a second bottle and was surprised by it.this rating was for some reason far more positive than the first. A golden bitter with a pleasdamnt trace of citrus and light carbonisation giving a pleasant mouth feel.Left a nice fruity aftertaste.Better than I first thought and recommended.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2006
From bottle. Crisp, with a slight sweet fruity aroma. Light golden appearance with a good head which sticks to the glass, always a good sign. Well balanced flavour of bitter and sweetness. Overall I feel this beer is excellent. I am pleased I found this beer, A very good well balanced ale. Definitely close to mans best friend.

Bottle. Golden with a small off-white head. Aromas are biscuit malts with apricot frutiness. Some sweet pine with citrus. Flavours are sweet and fruity with biscuit and caramel malts. Very nice spicy green pine with a dry finish. Addictive.

Bought bottle from York Brewery. Mild amber color, little or no head. Nice aroma, but rather dull. Flavor is rather fruity and is followed by a plesant aftertaste. Nice smooth palate.
