모리슨에서 구매, 바디감 없고 홉이 진하게 느껴짐. 생 홉을 먹은 것처럼 쓴 맛이 길게 지속됨. 전 별로였습니다. Zlotta (4513) - Hagen, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2018
0.5 l bottle from 'The English Shop' (Dortmund), bottled in October 2017. Clear, amber with a medium large, foamy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, floral, slightly grassy and a little fruity aroma of hay, tangerine, tea leaves and some grains. Slightly sweet, moderately bitter, floral, moderately grassy and slightly fruity taste of grains, hay, tangerine, tea leaves, some marmelade and traces of honey, followed by a short, moderately bitter, grassy and slightly dry finish. Almost medium-bodied, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Good balance, easily drinkable, very pleasant. ralphdot (1130) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2018

Underwhelming golden ale. Not much nose or taste on front of mouth. Bitter golding hop finish and aftertaste p0urmeac0ld0ne (517) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - DEC 6, 2017
What a twang! Heavy on the hops, but asides from that, is a fairly typical British ale. Could be very tasty if it had a bit more power being the hop dryness, but asides from that it is quite watery and weak tasting. Not bad, not good. Bottle from Tesco.

Bottle at home. Many of these drunk in the past, but the first time to review a bottle. Poured nicely with a lasting head and lacing and an appealing colour in the tankard. Not much of an aroma, but I served it too cold. The taste was all about those lovely bitter hops that cut across the palate and left the taste buds jangling. There was length to the bitterness too and this was backed up by the malts. Very English in its bitterness and it would probably frighten those who like a sweet beer. I forgot how lovely this is. groovy123 (3) - - OCT 29, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 Bitter hop beginning, light fruity middle and dry ending. Very poor watery body. Bitterbill (2113) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 26, 2017

This pours from 16.9oz bottle a cloudy light gold with a huge head of foam that settles down but it hangs around for the entire session as a solid 2 finger layer. A very attractive brew in my glass.
The smell is all malty and fruity and nice.
The taste is a good mix of sweet malt and fruit and I'm talking pear. A few more sips in and I get some roasted malt and some hoppiness that shows up as lemon tang that dominates mostly near and through the finish. Plenty of flavour here and at its low abv, this is one heck of a session brew.
Bottom line: Here's a session Ale that really hits well on all marks and I can *only* recommend it. Very good stuff!!
