Bottle. Pours clear dark amber with very small frothy whitish head, lightly spicy caramel malt aroma, high carbonation, spicy sweetish caramel taste, thin body, longish caramel finish. Tasty and easy to drink.

0.5 bottle @ Davies Court
Gold with a small head. Aroma of malts, fruits, and DMS, as well as some flowers and perhaps English hops. Taste is sweet, malty, typical English ale. Medium, slick, lively. Finish introduces nothing new. Overall, mediocre.

Bitterbill (2112) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 17, 2017
From Mar 2006 Poured from bottle(room temp) a medium gold with a huge head of foam that dissipated slowly leaving s solid layer that lasted throughout the session. The smell is of sweet malt and some faint fruitness. The taste up front was a malt sweetness, almost honey like but shortly after, the bitterness from the hops come in and pretty much took over but that's temporary as well as the finish, imo, is a very nice balance between the 2 tastes . Yum...what a nice session brew! Bottom line: Here's another session English Ale that delivers nicely in the taste department. I'll certainly buy this again.

Grumbo (4957) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2017
Bottle. Backlog rating from bottle collection and historic scoring. Source not recorded. No tasting notes kept, just rating. But not at all 'woody'.

Kita (2376) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 10, 2017
Bottle, 0.50l. Pours cloudy amber color with large frothy off-white head and good lacing with average sparkling appearance. Aroma of berries, grass, cereals,yeast and toffee. Taste starts with mild sweet toffee, following is grassy and mild fruity, while finish is medium bitter. Light to medium body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. No fun at all...

cervmagpt (987) - PORTUGAL - AUG 23, 2017
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 12A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch LB7086 (BBF 27.MAR.18). AROMA: medium-low to low hop aroma with an herbal character (starting to show oxidation), low diacetyl. very faint to none slightly sweet malt background. APPEARANCE: golden color and clear. medium-low ivory head with good retention. TASTE: medium-low hop flavor with a dry grass character (slight oxidation). almost neutral and slightly sweet malt background. medium to medium-high bitterness with a dry and bitter finish. slight diacetyl and cardboard. PALATE: medium-low body with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a golden ale with too little malt character on the flavor and starting to show some oxidation.
