COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
Brewed using the highest quality barley grown on UK assured farms. Golden in colour with a light, dry palate & a fresh, fruity aroma. Perfect with bangers & mash or roast beef.
Matured live in the bottle for a fresher taste. Can be enjoyed cloudy, but ideally pour slowly leaving the last few drops in the bottle with the yeast. For best results store upright & serve at 10-12°C.

Golden body, white head. Aroma of bready malt, earth hops, cardboard. Flavour has toast and little bitterness. Bit flat, both my favourite

Migmar (219) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2012
A very smooth ale, not quite the hoppiest one, but very fresh and easy to drink. Fruity and rather sweet, doesn’t feel that bitter to me.

tiong (3069) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2012
500ml bottle from Alko

Quite generic, classic English bitter with a golden color and a slightly malty taste. Finish is bitter and slightly grassy. Decent, but nothing special.

Bottle. Golden, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma with light fruitiness, light toffee and light grassy hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light toffee and some fruitiness, light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and light fruitiness, some grassy hoppyness. OK bitter - lacks character, though.
