Bottle; golden brown, moderate white head; aroma is malty; taste is cereals and bread, lightly toasted; yeast in the background; quite bitter; finish is quite long - more bread / cereal; fresh, thirst quenching and good; in a word: arable.

Poured medium amber with an off white head. Aroma of roast malt, dark chocolate, liquorice. Medium body, flavour is as the aroma, quite bitter, some light fruit hidden in the depths.

A nice premium bitter this one, though not much like an IPA. Nicely balanced caramel malt with earthy hop bitterness. Also, for a bottled bitter it isnt over carbonated and it has a nice slick texture. Yum!

Hanoi (906) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Aroma is malt and cereal, could not detect hops... Not promising for an IPA. Taste is lightly bitter with cereal, and butterscotch tones, with a lightly pine finish. Mouthfeel is nice and rich.

Sweet aroma with caramel malt. very smooth and easy to drink. Quite a lot of toasty malt in the flavour. Roasted bittersweet aftertaste.

Pours a brown colour, taste is malty and toffee like, an ok beer but a bit of a dissapointment and uninspiring

ManVsBeer (9202) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Smooth textured light copper coloured ale with a disappearing bubbly head. Has a good identifiably pale ale aroma with a small fruitiness. Its more stubborn in its flavour and has a graininess. Slips down the palate with ease.
