BelgaBart (51) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM, - FEB 16, 2012
Got this from the English shop in antwerp. very clear ber, no bubbles @ all. Nice cramy head, thanks to the ball in a can trick. Smell caramel, a little bit of hops and a little bit sweetness.Very soft and easy drinkable beer. The bitter flavor is there, but it is all the flavor you will get. Kinda dissapointed in the beer, is like water with taste :-(

Can from a local supermarket, gifted to me, thought I'd show willing... Pours golden amber with a slowly settling and long lasting creamy white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, grass, fruit and boiled veg and very metallic. Medium plus sweetness, light bitterness. Light body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Weak, sweet malt finish. Drain pour mostly.

Salian (165) - Sale, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2017
Golden colour, cream white head and biscuit flavours, but often let down with overly dry and astringently bitter finish.

vinivini (3146) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 26, 2017
Can. Clear amber color, big nitro head. Nose: pale and toasted malts, fruity yeast. Light to medium body. Soft carbo. The tasting starts with sweetish biscuity malts. The middle is hollow. Light grassy bitterness finishes. Hoppy aftertaste. Not a highlight of English brewing I suppose.

BobBadger (4) - London, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2017 does not count
My favourite at Old Trafford watching Man United. I can find it here in the States now and I frequent those pubs that serve it. Smooth and creamy good on a hot day in a cool public house. Just bitter enough.

Grumpelmies (431) - GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Can. Golden with a small creamy head. Subdued aroma of malts and some floral hops. Taste is kind of fruity, metallic and some biscuit. Slightly bitter. Medium to strong carbonation. Watery but creamy and smooth mouthfeel. A bit bland and boring but definitely sessionable.

mzaar (3739) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2017
Fat. Klar guldfärgad med ett tjockt och krämigt skum. Dofter och smaker av trä, smör och gräs. Smörig avslutning med lätt beska.

Trolleo (1830) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 12, 2017
Bit hazy amber color with no head. Sweet malty aroma, honey and some wood. Honey taste, pretty sweet, lots of flowers. Extremely watery. Flat carb.

ryanfolty (2655) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2017
January 18, 2017 - on tap at Lion&Rose. Clear golden pour with nice thick head that lasted. Aroma and taste of grain and malt, finish was mild bitter. A bit watery on the palate.
