Almost clear amber beer, small bubbly cream colour head. Palate is light with a medium minerally crispness. Smooth and light malts, touch of thin creamy sweetness. Mild fruits - ripe orange. Light dry floralness. Crisp finish. Mild bitter linger. Pretty quaffable.
Cask at the Merchants Inn, Rugby, 14/08/14.
Reddish amber with a good sized off white head.
Nose is candied fruit peel, bready notes, biscuit.
Taste comprises biscuit malt, mellow fruit, light hop presence, red grapefruit, candied sugars.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitterings in the close.
Ok stuff - for me an amber ale not a bitter. Sjohnh (1012) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Good English bitter - taste of malt, caramel and dried fruit with the fruity hops mostly coming through in the nose. Attractive red colour - small head with a bit of lacing. Not sure about the aftertaste though - there’s something slightly unpleasant in there along with the bitterness. Enjoyable overall though.

Nice red colour with a thick off white head. Nice aroma of American hops. Classic caramel and bready flavour. The hops do disappear reasonably quickly however. Overall a nice beer. sic1314 (4967) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2013
Poured a dark reddish brown with a medium head. Aroma of toasted malt and floral hops. Weak body, flavour of the aroma with light berry fruit and a dry, bitter finish. The_Bish (1146) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
