Bottles from Sainsburys. Light copper colour with an off-white head. Decent carbonation, with mid range head retention, but good lacing. Slight metallic twang, certainly not unpalatable. Well rounded bitterness and a dry aftertaste. Would quite like to find a cask example for comparison. Reasonably nice beer, could easilly drink more than one.

Davros IX (500) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2017
A proper English bitter that veers towards best bitter territory. Lots of strong dark malt and a nice bitter flavour and texture from the hops. Biscuit and a welcome farmyard flavour made this a very pleasurable pint.

Bijl (811) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2017
Kopergeel, licht crèmekleurige schuimkraag, helder, iets koolzuur. Aroma: Zeer moutig, brood/biscuit, wat spicy hops, iets fruit. Smaak: Moutig en brood, beetje floraal en zoetig, iets fruitig, aarde/mossige en kruidige noble hops, een aangename bitter. Decent brew! Medium body, zacht koolzuur, zacht mondgevoel, afdronk is moutig, bitter en iets droog.

radassace (421) - SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours amber with a lasting off white head. Nose is dark fruits, toffee, Christmas cake and some floral hop. Medium carbonation. Fruity, malty, sweet and some dry hop bitterness on the finish. Pretty decent brew.

3.6
chocolatepoppa (7) - Bath, Somerset, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2017 does not count
Dark amber colouration with a small white head. Medium aroma consisting of malts, light hops and a slight hint of bitters. Smooth consistency, slightly foam heavy, taste is malty with subtle hints of floral sweetness. Overall, a very nice autumnal beer, best accompanied with a fishing trip and a nap
