gegwilson (3788) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from Aldi. Chestnut with a cream froth. A beer dominated by toasty malt flavours. A little spice and bitter citrus on the finish. Feel pretty thin. Distinctly average.

ManVsBeer (10928) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2013
Has a slightly grainy texture to it, but in aroma a stronger fruit character is evident. Light brown and clear with no head.

The_Osprey (8715) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2013
Had on draught previously, and had recently in bottle. Mar 2012 - balanced taste - bitter but not too hoppy - very nice

Fairground (29) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2013
Pours dark nutty brown with minimal head. Aroma is quite complex with bread butterscotch, raisin, vanilla, soy sauce, caramel, toast, smells. Taste is salty, medium sourness, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, astringent taste, the smell is better than the drinking of this one I’d say. Too thin and a little lacking in depth.

First taste this afternoon, very thin looking, tasted okay, without being spectacular.

swooper (1247) - Cambridge and Kladno(Czech Rep.), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2012
bottle, nice fruity aroma, brown to red colour, clear, minimal head, medium bitterness start medium sweet finish, medium body, average carbonation, sweetish end, not bad a bit warmy whichis nice but nothing outstanding

BlackHaddock (7585) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2012
Nov 2006, from BA: 500 ml brown bottle, with a colourful, country scene front label telling me it is a multi-grain beer (barley, wheat, oats and rye). Pours beautifully into my Gordon’s tulip glass, off white foaming head sat atop a lovely copper red body. Aroma of baked digestive biscuits and a malty wiff. The rear label mentions Maris Otter pale and Crystal malts, it also states Goldings hops were used. All I know is, it tastes great, like an English bitter should. The bitterness stays in the mouth and down your throat, rich, wholesome and enjoyable. This is one of the best bottled beers I have ever had and will be getting some more very soon.

tommann (3903) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2012
