Soft sweet caramelly aroma. Ditto the taste. Soft palate, a little watery and sweet, carbonation low. Finish a little tanniny. A very solid bitter bitter. Not saying 3.7% - this has some real character. Bitterness very high, but it works very well in balance with the sweet caramelly malts.
23rd April 2015: 500ml bottle shared with my wife in bright sunshine on our patio. Really enjoyed this beer: light brown body with full heads on our two half-pint glass tankards (old Home Ales countryman glasses). Malty lead with a good hop content stopping any real sweetness from showing. Fruity and interesting, belies it’s 3.7% ABV with a flavoursome taste and aroma. jjsint (3331) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle from Waitrose. Light brown. Clear with reasonable head & lots of lacing. Negligible aroma: bit of fruit, wood, freshly mown grass. Taste is an improvement, with a hearty hoppy bitter taste and a slight bitterness in the finish. Nothing special but certainly a drinkable bitter.

Bottles from Rehills, Newcastle and Cambridge Wine Merchants. An amber ale with a slight burnt toffee and currant flavour, red fruit notes and roasted bitterness on the finish. harrisoni (19023) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Cask gravity at Planet Thanet BF 2014. Clear amber thin white head. Fruity on the aroma. Decent session bitter. English fruity bitter. Ok condition. Some bitterness on the finish some hedgerow which is attractive. Drinkable and distinctive. Dome apple fruit. Interesting. Beese (3051) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle from the brewery (I believe). Poured a hazy amber with a thin, white head. Aroma of floral hops, hay and synthetic fruit. Very bitter initial flavours; metallic with some dry straw. Finish was astringent with copper and bitter hop resin. I could not recommend. Cuso (8880) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle. Amber color with small white head. Malt, caramel and floral hops. Medium sweet taste with caramel malt, bready notes, citrus hops. Light bitterness in caramel sweet finish. Not bad.
