Very light aroma. Hardly there although slightly fruity. Very pungent butter taste on the tongue which lingers and develops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Must be one of the best session beers ever. Drank this many times over many years, perfect bitterness,

Garrold (5606) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
One of those beers that I’ve overlooked on the bar, dozens of times, searching for something "better". Shame, really, as this is a very decent session beer, with a subtle, fresh malt and hop character that I won’t overlook in future.

3.3
Desverger (12915) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2013
[email protected] Trader, London - amber/copper pour comes with thin dissipating white head and lacing. Prominent malts, toffee, caramel, has some slight subtle spicy hops in there. Decent bitter.

3.5
radagast83 (8471) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Cask at GBD in Washington. Poured a nice golden brown color, huge fluffy, foamy white head. Aroma was light malts, some pepper-like earthy hop notes. Flavor is earthy hops, light, thin malts. Highly drinkable and a lot more flavorful than I would have expected. A nice bitter, but don’t expect it to shatter your world.

2.8
ManVsBeer (10946) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
Lighter brown with a very thin head. Has a light malty taste throughout and a fine session ale. Medium to high bitterness with some sweetness in the nose.
