HogTownHarry (7062) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, - FEB 10, 2007
Bottle (500ml). Via trade with jerc - thanks, Jer!. Slightly hazy light gold with a tinge of amber, large frothy white head. Nice cereal grain aroma, no skunk, doesn’t seem stale, soft and funky/grassy hops, hint of slightly tart fruit. Very mild flavour, touch of bottle, nice pungent grassy hop finish, still a bit of flax/grain character to it. Average, slick body, a bit astringent, slight bitter aftertaste. Not bad for the style, good hop character.

john44 (3202) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2017
Bottle. As "Marks & Spencer Organic Ale". Light golden in colour. Hoppy; very earthy hops, peppery. Fruity; tangy, orange and grapefruit citrus. Sweet malty; caramel and toffee. Well balanced; bitter earthy hops over sweet malts. Smooth bitter finish. Not bad. Drinkable. (2008)

mighty_meadow (308) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - JAN 25, 2015
500ml room temperature bottle poured into tulip glass. Light amber colour. Small lasting head and lacing. Packs a bit of a punch and doesn’t hide it’s 6%ABV. Alcohol is very noticeable but not in an off putting way.

MrJamesMcEwan (244) - SCOTLAND - FEB 8, 2014
"Golden colour, clean full malt flavour and crisp hop aftertaste". Aroma slightly smelly socks. Taste citrus, refreshing but also dry and bit off.

2.7
allmyvinyl (10843) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 8, 2013
500ml bottle shared at home. Pours hazy, cloudy even, yellow with a thin white head. Biscuit and flowery aromas, honey. Tastes boozier than many beers stronger than this. Light body and thin texture. no noticeable hop bitterness. OK, but a bit boring.

2.9
Stuartyboy (1733) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle from Aldi a clear deep golden colour ale with a some honey carmel and malt overly sweet making and flowery spoiling it a bit

mr_h (5743) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAR 10, 2013
500ml bottle from Tesco, Ayr - clear golden straw, medium white head, sweet malty aroma, caramel, honey, fruity, floral, sweet, oily texture

3.5
kaziopiwosz (393) - Warszawa / Wałbrzych, POLAND - OCT 3, 2012
Honey nute in taste, bitter palate. White foam, medium thick, stays for 3 minutes. Dark-golden colour. Not a bad beer.

2.8
jamestulloch (4214) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 31, 2012
Aroma: Honey and unripe tropical fruit notes. Subtle hint of sauvignon blanc.

Appearance: Clear golden body with a huge white head that slowly fades. Light carbonation. Nice sticky lacing.

Taste: The fruity flavours are verging on sour. Quite tangy. Noticeable boozy taste for its 6% ABV.

Palate: Medium body with a dry, mouth-puckering mouthfeel. Gentle carbonation fizz.

Overall: Average at best. No uniqueness of flavour. In a word: dull.

3.5
OllieBBommel (1531) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2012
[email protected] (0,5l) Broker white head, shrinking but stays. Color copper. Aroma malt, hops, floral. Taste hops, malt, some bitter, CO2. Palate silken, some bitter, lasting. Overall worth trying
