jmgreenuk (9743) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 20, 2017
Bottle from Morrisons Harwich. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is toffee caramel, woody hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a woody, light fruit, light pepper spice palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

ManVsBeer (10766) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2017
Bottle from Aldi, Keighley. Golden-amber with no head. Fruity in both its nose and taste, with citrus and some orange evident, but not overly stated allowing a bitterness through in the latter, and a hint of toffee in the former.

steveddy (31) - Chichester, West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2017
Pours nicely, initial fluffy head disapates. Pale amber. Soft carbonation, initial light malty flavour and subtle hopes. Nicely balanced UK style pale ale.

Mjp12 (1923) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2017
Rather bland in all aspects I’m afraid. Some grassy hops, hints of malt and hop on the flavour, but lacking any real character.

SarkyNorthener (4722) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2017
Bottle from Aldi, great barr. Amber beer with small head. Aroma of malts. Taste is dry biscuit, malts, some toffee and light hop bitterness. Decent.

harrisoni (19023) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2017
Bottle from Aldi and drunk at home. Clear amber brown colour lasting beige head. Yes decent enough bitter. I’ve had half a dozen of these bitters now and they are all absolutely fine. Good carbonation, fresh tasting, good hops, balanced, Sweetish malt. Some citrus hops. Decent.

foxo82 (917) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2017
Bottle. An enjoyable, inoffensive, ginger-coloured thing, much like the man himself. Tastes stronger than the ABV.

redders1974 (1550) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2017
About as Inoffensive as it gets amber pour taste some butter some fruit medium bodied middle of the road stuff.

Ktwse (5247) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2017
Pours clear amber with low white head. Aroma of bread, nuts, burnt sugar and citrus. Taste is roasty and bready with a mild bitter finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

Towey1989 (3044) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of bready malts, some hedgerow fruit, slight herbs, a hint of honey and subtle earthy hops. Taste of hedgerow fruits, some bready malts, slight honey, a hint of orange and subtle earthy, herbal hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, dryish, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. A pleasant, easy drinking beer, slightly better than my cask experience.
