Pours a golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma and taste is very similar to the standard Black Sheep ale. A little more wet cardboard associated with oxidisation in this one though. Not my cup of tea. DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks troubles. Clear golden. Aroma has a bit of skunkiness, malt - a bit stale-tastining, light fruity hints and a faint hoppy note. Stale and slightly oxidized flavor with malt, some minerally and earthy hops notes and a bit of bitterness.

500 ml bottle from Brighton. Nice amber - beautiful to look at. Taste is fresh, a little bit acidic, dry. Nice white head. Good beer, but would like to have a little bit more nuances. prawlie (1592) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2013
500 mL bottle from Asda in Hull. Golden amber, bubbly head, gassy. Dry, acidic, fruity aroma. Very dry, fruity, a little biscuity. Reasonable, but a bit plain. Pizd (435) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a dark, clear amber with small white head. Aroma of citrus, floral and hints of caramel and sweet malt. A good bitterness to this ale, hoppy with the very prominent citrus tastes but theres a few undertones of malt and caramel in there. More complex than I expected and great for the price.

Clear golden with a thin white head.
Nose is caramel, malt, sugar, light hops.
