novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Yikes. Pretty run of the mill, tastes similar to American adjunct lager with a heftier price tag. If you’re going to spend a couple more bucks , just buck up and get something actually decent.

ads135 (5207) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 10, 2017
A macro bitter. Light and lots of straw and grass. Has a cardboardy finish. Tried for the first time in 2007.

Sigmund (8025) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2017
Keg (not nitro) halfpint at Beaumont House, Dublin. Served very cold. Deep golden to brown colour, white head. Moderate aroma, some malts. Dry flavour with some bittering hops, lacks depth or complexity.

Luneylane (265) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - JUN 1, 2017
Draught at the New Inn, Tywardreath; rated here as it is described in The Beerhunters Top 500. Aroma: hay, bread. Appearance: clear amber, absolutely no head. Palate: light-bodied and thin, flat carbonation, bitter finish with pear drops. Taste: medium bitter, insubstantial and low ABV, but very complex and good. Very refreshing.

Grumpelmies (431) - GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Dark amber coloured. Decent head with lots of lacing. Mild aroma of nuts, malts, toffee and honey. Taste is malty, slighty nutty and a dose of honey. Toffee and Sulphur. Aftertaste shows some hops. Medium to strong carbonation. Creamy. Not outstanding but nice and easy.

3.8
Davros IX (577) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2016
A very drinkable and tasty pale ale that I have thoroughly enjoyed. Good flavour and a surprisingly nice mouth feel for a canned beer.

500 can. Really nice beer. Not one of the absolute best but definitely a very nice beer.

3.6
Cokemonkey11 (1123) - - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle. Pours medium walnut amber with bubbles. Scent is nuts, resin, and a bit of honey. Taste is pale ale with nice nutty malt qualities. Honey. Finish is smooth and crisp and with a faint stickiness that resides in your mouth without leaving sugar or any stickiness on lips. Great.

2.3
zacgillbanks (5651) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2016
Bottle from Co-Op, Wirksworth, Derbyshire. Amber coloured with a thin white head. It has a malty, toffee and slight sulphur note followed by caramel on the finish. Ok

2.7
ndburns (190) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2016
500ml bottle from Asda. Pours clear pale amber with medium tan head. Little aroma, some maltiness comes through. Flavour is all malt. Not greatly interesting.

3.1
Cristobal37 (1287) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 26, 2016
Satisfying English ale. Drying, mild, slightly nutty. Not as bad as the overall rating shows. Really satisfying.
