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.
Love the film.... not the beer, bit of a nothing to be honest, not a lot of smell or taste
Disappointment but not nasty

Bought from Morrisons. Pours to a golden colour. No head retention. Not a nasty pint!

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.

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.
