Homer321 (4838) - Melboring, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2013
From the can. Very clear dark gold color. Very light buttery notes in the nose. Smooth mouthfeel. Honestly, not a lot of much. Little crackers malt. But that's about it. I could drink about one or two dozen whilst watching football. ---Rated via intercellular device

Not much smell at all. Lovely golden colour, and great amount of off-white head. Although it doesnt taste bad, it doesnt taste much. Rather weak beer, but not bad.

mviljamaa (130) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Pours with a lot of creamy and light fluffy foam (like the ones with capsules do). Gentle aroma has malts, peach/apricot mash, tart, some banana, some other stuff, slight metallic aroma. The aroma is light, but fairly complex. Palate is smooth and light, a bit oily, but overall balanced. "Light ale" taste has malts, apricot/peach tart, yeast, faint hoppiness. An okay "standard pub ale", but a bit too tasteless to be enjoyed at home.

Can from The Pub. Aroma of caramel and cereal malts. Its a nice change of pace.

Jabic (529) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - APR 29, 2017
Ar: Toast and caramel; an herbal, mossy note; sweet syrup. Ap: Copper-gold and crystal clear; medium-small white head with low retention, but leaving a tight cap of velvety textured foam, classic nitro look. T: Red apple and bready malt; toasty and fruity, with pineapple flavor; medium, slightly rough bitterness, quite herbal and mossy in taste; bold, almost sharp, minerality, which lingers into the finish with the hop flavor. P: Medium-light body with soft, low carbonation; finish is dry. O: Nice malt complexity and depth of fruit flavor; easy-drinking yet robust and solid; classic mix of British yeast flavors (pineapple and red apple), mossy, herblal hop notes, and soulful, somewhat-dry toasted bread maltiness.

gripweed57 (2105) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2017
From old tasting notes. Honey gold color. Thick white head is mousse-like. Subtle yeasty malt aroma. Smooth creamy malt flavor has a softness to it, and a very pleasant mouthfeel that makes you want more. Pleasant hop finish. Tasty.

Westy1130 (72) - New York, USA - APR 4, 2017
Pours pale gold with creamy head. Sweet Malty Aroma and not much else. Taste: roasted malt and buttery bread, but pretty watery. Damn smooth on the palate.

vinivini (2046) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAR 25, 2017
Clear copper, moderate off-white head. Caramel and massive esters on nose. Sweet malts and light grassy bitterness tasting. No proper flavour composition. Esters again

Dacrza (940) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2017
DATE: March 5, 2017... OCCASION: first Sunday feast during the season of Lent... GLASSWARE: Hop Devil nonick... quite a spectacle straight from the can, with a cascading effervescence that roils up the glass that piles a thick, steady snow pack of white... body is honey amber, with the slightest traces of bubbles around... soft buttery notes begin the aroma... some malty traces, but tough to notice more... a dank, bar rag aroma lingers, which doesnt endear it... sips a creamy, understated body--almost light-bodied--that lingers on the teeth moderately... a thin maltiness finishes... some citrus hints--lemon grass, mostly--with apple, butter, and basement... maybe a bit better than the sum of its parts, as it encourages the next sip as a "pub" ale should, with mild bitterness and crushability, but not among the pub ales I would suggest or serve to others....

Mindwarp (275) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Pours gold with a small white head. Aroma is mostly pear which is a nice change. The taste is of pear and banana but unfortunately there isnt much taste and is pretty watery. Overall this is a disappointing ale, it has potential but it is lacking in substance. It doesnt taste bad it just doesnt taste.
