Sjohnh (850) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Colour is a bit of weedy amber / brown with insipid head. First aroma is slightly meaty, then (see previous reviewer) I do get pear drops. Medium body, low carb. Im getting umami in the taste as well, plus the orange and a decent malt base. Peppery finish though the alcohol peeps through as well - could be a bit more refined.

Fin (10037) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2016
Bottle from Beer Gonzo webshop, consumed at home Thursday 11th February 2016 Hazy amber colour, a bit grubby looking, an off-white head sits atop. Loz gets Pear drops on the nose, I cannot say that I do. A little chewy in the mouth, fruity with a little tart fruit skin. Some of the flavour is reminiscent of a more traditional style but its good. Some sweet muddy citrus flavours (sweet orange) soggy bread, Pear drops (just a touch) good beer. A7 A3 T7 P3 Ov14 3.4

imdownthepub (13831) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Bottled, 500ml from The Real Ale Store, Newark, Notts. Gold with white head. This proved to be quite a smooth beer, fruity with a peachy, apricot flavour along with juicy orange. The alcohol seemed really well masked in a fuller body. Easy drinking for a bigger beer, liked it.
