Looks great, deep burgundy body with a slight haze and a small tan head on top. Subdued bready aroma with some slightly dank hops. Pleasant honey and bread flavors are a little more interesting. The mouthfeel manages to be a bit too harsh with excessively dry finish, but at least the bitter lingering flavors are tasty. All-in-all decent example of the style, perhaps it loses something in the trip over the pond and sitting on the shelf. Rob_D_UK (1369) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 2, 2014
Pours light hazy orange with a light brown film. Fruity caramel and a metallic hint on the nose. Spruce and light raisins also present. Bitter, toasted, a hint of caramel and acidic tones. Leini (2056) - SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2014
500ml can. Clear copper/ruby body with a medium white head. Bitter, fruity and mild. Quite a nice pub ale type of beer.

Don’t understand the low ratings, unless it wasn’t fresh. Enjoyable session (best) bitter-well balanced. Slight chocolate malt in the finish, some taste of fuggles hops-earthy & spicy. Hops not overdone, but to style. Nice yeast Esters-just enough. Patrickctenchi (6593) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours clear, medium amber-brown with a lively beige head.
Apple, toffee aroma.
Taste is a bit oxidized...apple, caramel malt, slight leafy bitter, fruit taste.
Not bad, but obviously not a fresh specimen.

Bottle - Amber in colour. Malty; toasty malts, caramel. Fruity; mildly citrus-orange. Hoppy; grassy hops. Sweetish malty fruity with a drying finish. OK. Easy drinking. AshtonMcCobb (6615) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Shared 50cl bottle at Susie’s party.
Appearance - dark amber with a decent head.
Nose - toffee, biscuits and some apples.
Taste - more toffee apple and biscuits.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly fresh finish.
Overall - a decent bitter. So many of their beers are well executed but basically very similar. Mjp12 (1871) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2014
Decent session bitter, slightly odd aroma, But clean tasting beer. Ok, but not one of their best . Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2014
N0t bad at all. Alth0ugh n0t excepti0nal, it’s the kind f brew that I c0uld drink vast quantities 0f. It has an orange/amber b0dy with a m0dest head, but pr0vides s0me nice lacew0rk. It has a fresh white bread crust ar0ma, a dash 0f caramel, and a t0uch 0f herbs and lem0n. The taste is reflective 0f the n0se with a bit m0re herbal character and a slight dry bitterness that lingers int0 the finish. Nice. I wish it went f0r less here. triximonk (49) - SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2014
The best thing with this beer is it’s label, that I like a lot. It has a oily taste and feels oily in the mouth. It does not have much of a aroma. Sorry you guys, but I did not enjoy this one.
