Hanoi (927) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Bottle.Nose is fruity, brown sugar, . Taste is sweet malt, dark fruits, caramel, light medicinal hops hint of lemon. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Its one of the acres of bland beers beloved by CAMRA but which leave me cold, it seems dead in the bottle. I need to try this on cask.

Grzesiek79 (4246) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Mocna goryczkowa paleta tego piwa mi się podobala. Dlugi dlugasny bardzo gozki finisz. Pachnie syropem klonowym i sokiem z brzozy. Troche spadzi iglastej. W smaku wytrawno gozkie mało slodowe, Bitterek w starym dobrym stylu. Wyglad prawie bez piany leciusieńko mgliste, zabarwienie ciemnej herbaty.

Perpignan73 (40) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2016 500ml bottle, chilled, poured into a pint glass at home. Attractive golden amber colour; small off white head; not much nose, sweet, malty, fruit; caramel and fruit palate with a dry, mild, bitter-sweet finish. Not much complexity. Its a decent, drinkable red ale but a little underwhelming. I was expecting more given some of the reviews.
