Ok Average beer. Easy drinking palatable beer. Stronger than its smooth taste suggests.

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 (371) - 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 (7132) - 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 shepherds pie.

AtronSeige (1398) - 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! 8B. Special/Best/Premium Bitter

Swaroga (2151) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 8, 2015
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.

Martin243 (1063) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Live rating of a 500ml bottle from Lidl: (1.29, I think). Orangey fuggle hop aroma. Amber clarity with a creamy white head. Orange flavour, creamy sweetshop Wham bar, and digestive biscuit flavour. Is that a hint of nutmeg? Ooh, I like this... slick in the mouth, bitter finish, with lovely quietly assertive Englishness.

SarkyNorthener (4223) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2015
Bottle from lidl, burton. Golden amber beer with large head. Aroma of grain and a little malt. Taste is biscuit malt, a touch of pepper and hops. Ok.

prawlie (1531) - ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle from Londis. Dark orange and lightly carbonated, with a head that doesnt hang around. Notes of biscuit, fruit cake, fruity, lightly bitter with a crisp taste. Tasty.
