Davros IX (354) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2017
2016 catch up - A drinkable golden beer, but not one that stands out from the rest of the pack. Some bitter hops, malt and a low level of carbonation.
Leighton (21232) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2017
Bottle at home in London - sourced via Ocado. Pours totally clear, light gold with a foamy, white head. The nose holds lightly toasted pale malts, nips of leafy hops, a little citrus peel. Light-medium sweet flavour with simple pale, bready malt character, impressions of citrus, pale grains, leaves, biscuits. Light bodied with average carbonation. Easygoing finish, light grassy and leafy bitterness, more pale and lightly toasted malts, subtle orange, a little English yeast. Enjoyable, basic beer. john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2017

Average beer. Easy drinking palatable beer. Stronger than its smooth taste suggests. BeerNinjaUK (466) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2016

Butelka 500 ml. Zloty kolor o malej bialej pianie. Aromat jak dla mnie bardzo nikly o malo intensywnej nucie chmielowej. Ciastka i mokra sciera. Smakuje zdecydowanie lepiej. Goryczka zagluszona przez slodkawy posmak karmelowy. Niezle shoestring (401) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle at room temperature. Get orangey buttery smoothness and creaminess on palate . Not much carbonation but not flat taste. Quite drinkable and easily supped. The_Osprey (7980) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2015
500ml bottle at home in Blaendulais. As ’Butcombe Gold’, 4.7% BB Sep 2016. Pale orange, totally clear, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head leaves strands of lacing. Aroma is glue, polish, pear skin, a little elderflower. Body is medium, rounded, soft carbonation. Taste is traditional-style gluey cardboard, fairly bitter, dry ground spices, wood shavings, some tangy dried apple. Pretty drinkable. Decent. Matched up well with vegetarian shepherd’s pie. AtronSeige (1535) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 12, 2015
Aroma: Medium-light spicy, earthy. Medium-light caramel. Light berries.
Appearance: Brilliant, dark, gold body. Thin, off-white head.
Flavour: Medium-high bitterness. Light sweetness. Medium hoppy, earthy, berries. Medium caramel. Dry finish with lingering bitterness and light hoppy astringency.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Light carbonation, creamy.
Overall: The astringency is unwelcome, but the beer smells and tastes great.
500 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre!

Uninteresting beer. Dull aroma of bread, sugar and herbs. Flavour the same with some delicate but present bitterness reminding me herbs. aftertaste is short. Filtered with small head. The colour is copper.
