BlackHaddock (7956) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2012
500ml bottle, best before Dec 2012: poured into a UK pint sleeve on 16 July 2012. Mid-golden body, clear and clean: good white blanket of foaming bubbles on top. More hops than malts: the nose and taste majoring on semi-citrus hop flavours. Bitter-sweet really in the mouth with the bitterness winning in every sip especially towards the end as the mouth dries. Did it ring my bell? Yes, one of the better hoppy brews out there (IMHO).

johndoughty (5600) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle. Clear bronze appearance. Low carbonation and very flat. Quite inviting with a bitter finnish. Well rounded mouth feel.I expected a routine mid range bitter but this is more than that.

JoeMcPhee (10129) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2011
Very pale golden pour. The aroma is a little bit sulphury. Soft fruity hops and a touch of spice as well. Goldings hop spice and a nice minerally character. As it warns up the spice really comes out. There is a touch of soft peppery character and some light lingering almost minty character as well. Soft and spicy and quite lovely. A pretty solid pint really.

Bottle, Woodlands Garden Centre, Leicestershire. Clean, crisp, biscuity dry bite with a hoppy-bitter finish and slight citric aroma.

mcberko (19809) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2011
On tap, pours bronze. Aroma and flavour of biscuity malts, light toast and lightly bitter hops. Not too thrilling.

3.9
Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
@ Pig & Fiddle, Bath. Rich amber-gold. Stable tight (sparkler?) head. Balanced aroma of cereal grains and light field hops. Quaffable. Excellent pour! Clean and delicious. Biscuity (cookie) malts. One of the better session ales from Bath. Light on the palate with lasting balanced flavors. Quick on the tongue and more-ish. This is what I wish APAs were like.

RichardGretton (4861) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2010
Bottle. Golden/Bronze beer with a mild head. The aroma is toffee, bitter and hopped, and the flavour is bitter and mildly toffee and roasted. Overall a nice but fairly average beer.

Cask @ Crystal Palace, Bath. Bitter ale, full bodied, good finish. Nice. Taste has some citrus, hops, amber coloured.
