500ml bottle. Pours a robust and hearty looking dark amber colour with a low lying level white head. Grapefruit in the nose with a backdrop of sweetness. Smooth on the palate with a moderate bitterness that kcicks in at the end. Easy to drink and the mellowness makes this a good session beer.

A Sim rate (bottle at Laney’s): Malty and sweetly buttery & syrupy aroma. Bitter but peppery flavour. Malty bitterness. It’s ok. I could drink a few of these. ComradeK (1272) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a clear amber, with a small, dissipating head, yet passable lace. There is a fair bit of honey on the nose, with the merest hint of citrus hops. Moderate citrus hops to start with some assertive sweet malt coming through, particularly some honey character. Not the most complex bitter around, but a good session ale. larsga (7680) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2010
Biggish offwhite head. Light amber body with carbonation. Light fruity earthy toffee aroma with resiny notes. Dry-sweet earthy fruity floral taste with toffee notes. Mild mouthfeel. Light body. Dry earthy grapes and wild berries aftertaste with dusty papery notes. Fairly bitter. Nice, drinkable, and a bit unusual.

Bottle. Sweet orange and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow color with large head. Sweet orange, barley malt and lightly bitter herbal hops flavor. Nice easy drinking beer - slightly tart but nowhere near as tart as the cask version.

500ml bottle. Not quite golden, more in the line of copper really. Pours with a fluffy head that doesn’t stay long. Bready, caramel malt aroma, some citric notes. Dry and a bit thin on the palate with a bitter citrus quality and OK malt body. tommann (4032) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours amber with a large head. Aroma is malt and some grassy hops. Some malt and hops in there, but not much on the taste. A good bear could be coaxed out of this, but this is nothing special. bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2010
Bottle at my sister’s (from Waitrose)? Amber/gold with a short lived white head. Dusty hops with a slight metalic twang. Unremarkable. DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2010
Aroma is fine malt, leafy wet hops, some fruit, dark amber, pours a small custard head. Flavour is less malt, the hops are also subdued. Light bodied, balanced,bitter with a dry finish. Pretty good. Joakgust (1502) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2010
