gripweed57 (2728) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2017
From old tasting notes. Slightly cloudy orange copper colorwith a medium beige head. Light fruity malt aroma redolent of orange peko tea. Zesty dryish malt flavor upfront. Mildly bitter hops in finish. Dry aftertaste.

Sun Inn Kelvedon, Autumn Beer Fest, Cask. Clear amber beer, bubbly cream colour head. Palate is light, smooth and has low carbonation. Smooth malts, mild tangy caramel, vague brackish water. Mild spice and dry pithy bitterness. Little orange peel before a light semi dry finish. A bit too many things irritate with this one.

theprof (1079) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2016
Cask. Aroma muted hops. Pours amber with lasting white top. Taste is diplomatically described as balanced which in this case spells ’dull’. There is some bitterness in the finish but otherwise neutrality is all.

2.7
Rune (13186) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2015
Half pint, cask at Wm Hawkes. A covering white head with good lacing. Slightly hazy golden body, Smell of leafy hops and caramel malts. Malt-fruity taste of caramel and citrus leading to a restrained bitter end. Easy going bitter (shared with Finn, Hull 26.11.2015).

2.4
Finn (7836) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2015
Fra cask på WM Hawkes Hull 26 Nov 15. Delt med Rune. Gyldengulbrun. Litt uklar. Filmskum. Lett syrlig fruktaroma. Smaken litt ananas. Tørr syrlig avslutning.

Towey1989 (3042) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2015
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pale malts, some caramel, slight red berries, subtle marzipan and earthy hops. Taste is similar of biscuity malts, some caramel, slight red berries, subtle nuts and earthy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, nutty, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. A standard, inoffensive beer. Drinkable.

4.3
Vladivostok (490) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2015 At the Burton Bridge Inn. Mid amber with a creamy head. Malty aroma leads you into this excellent subtle beer. Taste is very well balanced but malt just has the edge. Smooth and refreshing with a long but not astringent aftertaste. A classic session bitter.

[email protected] (Burton Bridge), Burton-upon-Trent. Amber beer with a small head and good lacing. Aroma of malts. Taste is malts, dry hops and a touch of butter, well balanced. Nice body to this one. A very good session bitter.
