Bottle. Orange with a fluffy white head. Marmalade aroma. Flavour is sweet and juicy with a hint of almond. Bitter finish leading to a slightly sour aftertaste. Slightly metallic. AsaNewt (113) - blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2008
Fluffy off white head with a golden brown body. Nose hints of sweet biscuits. Flavour is honey cereal with a full bitter finish. Lovely. Bart (2936) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2008
Bottled version, light amber coloured beer with some light carbonation and a short white head. Sweet malty and herby aroma with some (ripe) fruity touches. Full palate. Finish is full bitter malty with a longer dry ending. Not bad. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2008
Bottled from morrisons. Aroma is minimal, balanced but just like a typically pasturised british bitter. Taste is similar, caramel maltsish flavours herbal grassy hop, quite earthy. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2008

It’s 9:09 am and I’m downing this in an attempt to calm my neves before I get on the plane to Barcelona. It has to be said this is a good looking beer. It’s an awesome orange amber colour with a very stable medium sized white head. Aroma is burnt caramel malt with some earth and sugar. Decent start actually and better than I was expecting. The flavour is more of the same and again pretty decent but where the hell are the hops? Ok they are just about there in the finish providing a little bite and a faint bitterness. Palate is overly stinging and does not help me do what I want to right now which is to down it. Actually it’s not bad you know. Well it’s better than I expected. Rich malty notes give some decent bread and cake flavours. Overall a decent drop just too gassy.
Appearance: Dark orangy brown. Little bit of white head, longlasting.
Aroma: Bit of yeast. Fruit, some hops and malt.
Taste: Crisp. Nice malt and hops. Nice, bitter aftertaste.

Bottle 500ml. from Waitrose, Christchurch. Pours a clear amber with medium off-white head which does not last. An aroma reminiscent of burning rubber. Quite thin mouthfeel. Refreshing session ale. Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2008

Bottle . A clear amber colour, beautiful clear amber with a thick creamy head. The taste is very nutty with bitter finish. HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2008
A little thin and a bit too sweet. Not enough hops - overall, fairly bland
