"Beers for bottling are drawn from brewery conditioning tanks and transported by road tanker to our bottlers. There they are chilled, stored for ten days, then filtered and bottled. At the end of the bottling process, the bottles are pasteurised, labelled and packed."
"Brewed with many generous handfuls of choice Golding hops, it is full flavoured ale with a rich fruit nose. The bittersweet malty taste is followed by an uncompromising long, dry and bitter finish. This beer was the first, most successful, of all of our bottled beers."

thejackpacker (1336) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2019
UPDATED: APR 23, 2019 Bottle from somewhere. A classic malty British ale. highly in malts. nice colours.

AshtonMcCobb (8505) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 21, 2019
UPDATED: APR 21, 2019 Bottle from Beers of Europe. Appearance - deep copper with a generous fluffy white head. Nose - toffee and metallic, though that could possibly be a dry herb note. Taste - toffee, brown bread. Light plant stalk and biscuit bitterness on the finish. Palate - medium bodied, crunchy and dry through the finish. Overall - the nose is not as good as the taste.

NobleSampler19 (2128) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - APR 8, 2019
UPDATED: APR 8, 2019 Dass ich dieses Bier getrunken habe, ist auch schon einige Jährchen her. Ich hatte mir zwar irgendwie ein schwarzes Biererwartet, aber das ist auch ok. In Erinnerung ist mir der volle malzige Geschmack geblieben, der angenehm samtig die Kehle hinaubgleitet. Das weiche Bier ist leicht und doch nicht fad zu trinken.

Salian (564) - Sale, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2019 Not my cup of tea, sweet malty beer with caramel and brown sugar flavour, hint of fresh lemon helps stop it from being sludge,

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2019 If the gods drank beer this is the beer they would drink. This may be a small brewery that was started by a member of the Theakston family after their brewery was bought by Bass but they show they know their trade with a number of award winning brews. This is still the best in my opinion.

Wskiggy (30) - - JAN 29, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2019 Canette 50cl. Robe rousse ambrée. Mousse généreuse et persistante. Larges dentelles sur le verre. Au nez levures, citron, caramel. En bouche amertume florale.

TedE (1981) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2018 500ml bottle into shaker. From Aldi, Riverwood. Crystal clear bronze beer with light carbonation and a foamy white head. Dark caramel nose, some citrus and biscuit. Flat mouthfeel with bitter taste. Finish is bitter lemon with lingering earthy, grassy notes. Nice bitter with an excellent hop profile.

Trolleo (3736) - Manchester / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 9, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2018 Bottle from Aldi. Boscuity, toasted and caramel aroma. Clear coppery color with small sized white head. Bitter, some iron, caramel and toasted bread, some biscuit. Thin body, average carbonation.

NeverBinge (325) - Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2018
Dark amber, with a fairly sustained head. Initially, this one smells a bit like a lager, but there is some malty sweetness underneath. Bitterness is just about sufficient - which sets it apart from many other (non-ESB) bitters. This is a decent enough beer, though not a great one.

Dorqui (2837) - Brescia, ITALY - OCT 23, 2018
Canned 0,44L. Dark orange color, burned aspect with foamy head of medium duration and nice limpid and bubbly aspect. Soft roasty and malty nose, light wood and cortex aroma. Medium smooth taste, pleasant dry bitter palate, roast malt and cereals. Pleasant and equilibrate alcoholic and bitterish final.
